I have the same thought as ChesstyA why Black didn,t play En Passant

or is this puzzle only played up to white move Pawn G4

Sweet!

Good puzzle, though wouldn't black last longer if he moved the king after the initial kf5 check instead of taking the knight?

Because White is up in material, s/he has no qualms about sacrificing the Knight to open up a huge attack on the Queen. Qe3 and g4 are lethal moves, and no matter which way Black attempts to avoid it, those will be the final blows to the Black King.
