Back when it was introduced for PlayStation 2 in 2004, Katamari Damacy dazzled the games world with a bizarre premise: You’re a tiny prince pushing around a sticky ball that picks up whatever it rolls over. You start with small objects, like ants and paper clips, but eventually your ball grows big enough that you’re subsuming buildings, towns, and planets.
Amazing Katamari Damacy moves that setup into more familiar territory for mobile players—an infinite running game—while retaining the offbeat character and scale-bending bravado that made the original cult series so beloved.
Once again you are cast as the Prince, tasked with rebuilding the universe that the King of All Cosmos accidentally destroyed. As with that first game, your journey starts with teeny-tiny steps.
You begin on a household table, snatching up screws, dice, and other knickknacks. As you'll quickly learn, you can’t pick up items bigger than yourself—that’ll make the King of All Cosmos angry.
Later, you move on to pool balls, then dogs, then airplanes. It just keeps escalating, getting weirder by the minute.
The wonderfully odd selection of mundane objects to roll over and the surreal antics of the Prince and the King of All Cosmos make this Katamari universe so charming. Amazing Katamari Damacy is the perfect entry point to this strange world.
