Naughty Gnomes is a 2D Puzzle game.
Your nose has been stolen by damn gnomes. Retrieve it by hitting all gnomes with cake.


You will see a box on the floor indicating your throwing direction and origin. Press and hold MOUSE1 to load up your throw and wait until your target tile is marked. Then, release MOUSE1 to throw. Throwing the cakes is tile-based, and you have limited range, so don't waste any precious cakes! On impact, the cakes' explosion will spread to each adjacent tile (kinda like bomberman!). If a Gnome is hesitating to come out of a corner, try scaring him out with your party horn (MOUSE2)


  • W,A,S,D or Arrow Keys : Move
  • MOUSE: Aim
  • press MOUSE1: Load Cake
  • release MOUSE1: Throw Cake
  • MOUSE2: Use Party Horn
