About the Game

You can't save the whole world. It's going to be eaten by a mythological demon with the head of a fish. But as a puppet that absorbs all it touches, you can try to rescue as much of Earth's greatness as you can before the end arrives.

In the beginning, you roam the Earth, capable of absorbing only the tiniest of objects. A glass marble you collect becomes your head, and a pair of jellybeans becomes your hands. Small creatures overwhelm you, with rats kicking you around and golden retrievers threatening to stomp you to pieces. But with every object you collect, your puppet self grows larger. Eventually, you'll become a towering behemoth with fire engines for arms and the ability to absorb entire buildings.

The Wonderful End of the World takes you through 12 unique locations, with over a thousand treasures to gather before the end comes. Steal some sweets from the candy store, where gummi fish swim in a blueberry river; visit a surrealist library to find that the words have literally leapt out of their books; and explore the Megalopolis, where you'll watch a lively end-of-the-world parade and then gobble it up before making your way to grab the tallest skyscraper ever built.

  • 10 achievements for exploring and unlocking secret areas of the game
  • 12 unique locations to explore
  • 3 gameplay modes: Timed, Timeless, and Exploration
  • 16 bouncy music tracks keep the action rocking. Or bopping.

This game is unfortunately the closest thing we have to Katamari Damacy on PC. It's short and low budget, but still quite a bit of fun. It even keeps the same weird music feel of the Katamari series, though in Dejobaan style. The game also allows for mouselook for much better control over your direction of movement, rather than the complex dual-stick style of Katamari. If you yearn to pick up every object in sight until you're large enough to destroy cities, yet don't own any consoles with Katamari games, this is the game to buy.

The Wonderful End of the World is, in short, a PC clone of Katamari Damacy, so it is easy to just say if you like that style of game you will like this one, but there are some querks you should know going in.

The idea of the game is simple, you play this walking man made of magnetic balls that when you get near objects of your size or smaller you pull them into you, letting them become a part of your body and making you grow, you keep growing bigger and bigger and your objective is to reach a set score before the timer runs out, this is the main game mode, once you beat all twelve levels you unlock endless modes and whatnot, letting you goof around.

This concept is fine and the game itself is fun but there are some mixed feelings I have for it, to start the sound design leaves much to be desired, basicly every item you pick up makes the same sound save for a telephone or something of that nature, all the sounds in game were obviously done on the cheap with what sounds like people making noises with their mouths, but that is not entirely a bad thing and has some charm to it as well.

The music is very well done and as with most Dejobaan games the overall design of the game is well put together, comical and tight, though there are issues that can be nitpicked, the controls are at times quite loose, it is not a very hard game or long either, you can beat the whole game in one sitting (In fact there is an achevement for doing that) and though the levels are very well made with unique art designs, there is very little replay value.

It is impossible to not compare this game to Katamari, but if you do so you will find that Wonderful falls a bit short from reaching that charming and very japanese series of games, however dispite that I still recommend this game, it's a fun time waster, doesn't cost a lot, and has just enough charm in it to get by, not to mention that if you are a fan of Katamari you have very few options on the PC for games like it.

A fun game with very simple gameplay, simply run into small objects to get bigger so you can pick up bigger objects. A nice amount of variation in levels to keep it interesting. The fun and simple gameplay and the entertaining visuals make for a relaxing game. I would recommend it, but it is a short game so try to pick it up on sale.

A fun game. A lot like an amateurish Katamari port, sans ball. Worth a few of your dollars, and one or two of your hours.

Probably the best katamari ripoff on PC, may also be the only katamari ripoff on PC.
