Slidetoplay wrote "Add a dash of Rogue, a large helping of Pac-Man, and you have the recipe for addictive arcade action. "[2] AppSmile said "A 5-Dimple stunner that has earned a permanent place on our iDevices. "[3] AppSafari wrote "Is Forget-Me-Not better than Pac-Man? I'm not sure I'd go that far. But it's one of the best iPhone games I've seen, and I enthusiastically recommend it. "[4] TouchArcade said "This game is just incredible. Every regular readers knows that I'm a retro nut, and Forget-Me-Not has retro goodness in droves. "[5] The AV Club said "The action quickly gets insane, though a trio of modes can help vary the game, depending on what sort of challenge you desire. "[6] Pocketgamer UK wrote "Fantastic retro presentation meets intriguing modern design, Forget-Me-Not is a breath of fresh air. "[7] Gamezebo wrote "It's dripping with retro goodness but doesn't bank on nostalgia to provide a compelling experience. An all around excellent game. " [8]

148Apps said "A great little retro arcade game – and I mean arcade in the truest sense. This feels like something that could have been made in the 1980′s and just recently unearthed. This is 'retraux' in incredibly fine form, and well worth checking out for fans of arcade games and fans of retro-styled games. "[9] AppSpy wrote "Forget-Me-Not is certainly hard to forget, with a unique combination of classic and modern elements that make it a blast to master. "[10] Multiplayer.de said "Forget-Me-Not isn't just a tribute. The charming twist to the Pac-Man mechanics is simply brilliant and the last update adds some kind of variety to the mix. It's a shame that swipe controls are so slow in the hardest moments of the game. "[11]

Edge magazine wrote "As an experiment in making a genuine retro game, and as a tribute to a forgotten title of yore, Forget-Me-Not is brilliant. But as a 2011 release, even with rose-tinted spectacles firmly applied, it's much harder to recommend. "[12]
