IGN: "Noby Noby Boy is going to provoke arguments for months between people who claim to Get It and people who don't, which is ridiculous because - in truth - there is nothing to get. Once you've accepted that, Noby Noby Boy becomes one of the most soothing, effortlessly playable things you've ever likely had the pleasure to experience. It's a surreal and simple sandbox with no hidden subtleties or complex underlying system of progress and reward, no contrived meaning. It's appeal purely lies with its gentle, happy-go-lucky lunacy, and that's what makes it so bafflingly absorbing. For slightly over £3, it's something everyone should try, especially as its emergent nature means that it will keep stretching and stretching our imaginations well into the future. It's just the sort of mad experiment that the PSN Store was made for, in fact."
