Its just awesome how the physics of the game works and every level is interestingly challenging and different.
My favourite levels are the ones where you begin in a bedroom, collecting items such as pegs, rubbers and pencils and your goal is to reach an astonnishing 500 meters in diameter! You venture out into the garden and the street collecting items until you can even pick up the house you started in!
I am in love with this game and it is a must have for anyones collection!
Plus the soundtrack is brilliant.
The game plays by you pushing round a ball collecting up anything that gets in your way. To pick up objects your ball of tat needs to be large enough but with everything you roll up it grows. The game is broken up into challenges, mostly create as big a ball as possible in the time limit or make a ball of certain size as fast as possible but there are lots of variations. There is something very satisfying about starting out rolling up paper clips and building up until things which prevously seemed like scenery are just more things to roll up and the difrence between picking up stationary and causing absolute havok is only a matter of minutes. Towards the final stages of the action reaches apoclyptic scale but there is always the up beat soundtrack, colourful visuals and weird cuteness.
This is simply the most enjoyable game I have played in a long time.
Theres just so much fun in starting out tiny, rolling up coins and pencils, then growing larger until you are rolling up cats, then people, cars, buildings, cities, mountains, clouds, and even the gods! Its such a fantastically simple and ingenious idea. It makes a change to the usual popular games involving violently killing gang members or beating people up for drugs money! Its a good, accessible pick up and play game that seems almost theraputic!
I finished it in a day and a half, but I did play it pretty solid. There is always time to improve on your score/ size in the many different and fun levels anyhow, and youll come back to it anyway because its such a unique game. The superb catchy and quirky soundtrack will draw you back in too!
For most of the time, the objective is to roll until you reach a target size within the time limit, but some involve different things such as rolling a snowball to create a snowmans head - including positioning the nose and eyes, one has you roll up fireflies to help a student study in the dark. Rolling a skinny sumo wrestler into food to make him fat and beat his opponent is my favourite one by far!
If you want a different game with a superbly simple, yet fun concept - I really reccomend it.
Its games like this that restore your faith in modern gaming - its not about violent, more extreme games or the latest next gen technology, just really good ideas that are fun to play!
I personally love it. It so mad and bizarre in story with its quirky manga-esqe humour you cant help laugh at the mad story or some of the things you roll.You at some points loss complete track of whats going on and just want to roll.
You play Prince Katamari- The katamaris where ruler of space and the comos and all the planets in it. Now the planets have gone and need to be put back.
You control a Katamari, a ball where you roll around the screen and collect anything/everything you can.Its that simple idea - basically in whatever setting your in water/camp/school you basically roll absolutley everything you can. Growning in size the bigger items you can pick up. I always laugh when its big enough to roll the rabbits/deer or even god! Its the sheer panic in their voices as you carry on your path of rolling.
Now this sounds quite simple.. and the first few levels are, but with further progress it gets harder and harder with time requirement or item collection or dont let your burning katamari go out added!!. It really is a well thought out game.
You have to collect all manners of objects to get 100% on each level which takes some doing I can tell you, So longevity is there in masses and add a 2 player option it makes it a must have.
The only bad thing is possibly the graphics which pretty much are enhanced PS1 graphics but you really dont notice it as your busy ploughing your way through the game.
The sound as well is a mix of mad Japanese rock/dance and I swear tom jones (sounds like it anyway). Everything in this game compliments each other.Read more ›
