Really Weird...

Much like Katamari Damacy before it, this game is really weird. In fact, it's weirder. Your mission in the game is to use both analog sticks to stretch your [kwlink 16182]snake-like[/kwlink] character, Boy, as long as you can in a world full of moving people, buildings, fruit, and animals. You really have to watch a video to get the idea. This gameplay, combined with the odd toucan and squirrel that seem to randomly pop up in the corners of the screen, makes this a really odd experience.

But Fun!

But you don't actually have to stretch, and in fact it's far more fun to just play around with everything in each map. For instance, you can alternate pressing R2 and L2 to fly, which will eventually take you out into space and all the way out to the sun. There are so many objects to experiment with as well, like the Egypt map that has a pyramid of blocks you can knock over or stretch around, or whatever. It's not so much a game as a fun little sandbox with lots of cool things you can do. You really have to play it to understand, this is such a new kind of game.


And So Cheap!

At $5, this game is great value for the money. Plus, the more people play, the more levels everyone in the world unlocks, as the total stretch length of everyone in the world is combined to reach new planets, so get stretching!

    Can you guess why the Katamari is so Sticky?

    • Tons of glue.
    • Gruesome green boogers.
    • Tape!
