GameZone: "Nom Nom Galaxy isn't the next Terraria — it's the first Nom Nom Galaxy. I mean, I get it. It's always pretty easy to draw comparisons between something new and whatever it reminds us of. Still, sometimes it's not that simple. Was Sonic the Hedgehog the Mario killer? Not necessarily. Did Saints Row overthrow Grand Theft Auto? No, it did its own thing. Is Nom Nom Galaxy just Terraria by the PixelJunk people? Absolutely not. And the sooner everyone gets that, the sooner they'll see that this is a magnificently jovial little game worthy of its own merit."
