Tietoja pelistä

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.

KATAMARI DO YOU BEST!

Though the King of All Cosmos might be absent, probably busy screwing around with some other corner of the universe, it’s hard to see anything but Katamari Damacy when looking at The Wonderful End of the World. More than that, it’s hard not to see everything that’s missing from Dejobaan Games take on the eccentric Japanese series.

Though both games play more or less identically to each other, giving you control over what amounts to a giant, moving, all inclusive piece of ever expanding velcro to roll up the world in, all the heart and self indulgent absurdity of the Katamari series has been forgotten. Stripped of its character, The Wonderful End of the World is a cold, lifeless clone that only ever served to remind me of how much fun the games that inspired it are and how much I wished I was playing them instead.

But even at a mechanical level, The Wonderful End of the World is clunky and perplexing. Size is no longer the deciding factor in what you can and cannot roll up, instead relying on a number counter which seem to arbitrarily gate certain items until you hit a particular milestone. I was constantly bumping into objects I thought I should be able to pick up, while absorbing ones which seemed too large, leaving me to memorize particular numbers and fail a lot in the process.

I wanted to love The Wonderful End of the World. I was willing to forgive its blatant plagiarism just to have something like it on PC. But it’s such an unapologetic copycat, blandly ripping off other games while having no identity of its own, that it just made me sad and bored. Coming from a studio whose games are often bursting at the seams with personality, The Wonderful End of the World is easily the most uninteresting apocalypse I’ve ever took part in.

The only possible benefit to buying this horrible knockoff of Katamari Damacy is I had five less dollars to spend on drugs.

Stay in school kids.

I find it weird that not many people have this indie game. Sure it has its negative points, like unpolished, bad responsive controls and I personally didn't like the camera angle or the music much. But none the less I enjoyed it. Especially the level where you absorb as much candy as possible. The levels are fun and a big variation of objects. It will be challenging to clear the levels but if you look for a fun and casual game..

AUDIO: Catchy                                       AESTHETIC: Unoriginal
MEMORABILITY: So-so                         WORTH: Heavy discount

PROS: A katamari-type game has been anticipated by major fans of the series, so it has a place with me for trying to emulate gameplay I like. The cel-shading looks very nice and the main theme is cute. I didn't run into many glitches while playing.

CONS: Voice is annoying and the story behind the game is weak. While in Katamari one can travel around and pick things up with particular routes reaping the highest scores, deviating from the best possible route in tweotw may very well make you fail the level as no items within your proper size range have been placed around. The style of the game is very unfocused.

OVERALL: Levels not being populated enough is a real deal-breaker here. The levels have been broken down into viable routes; it's lost its charm and quirkiness. What was supposed to be a messy, crazy world are lines of data represented by nonsensical objects. In my opinion, probably the weakest of all Dejobaan games.

So you're telling me that for the low, low price of ten bucks, instead of buying a used copy of We Love Katamari, I can play this cheap copy of Katamari Damacy that runs in fullscreen at 640x480, has the world's twitchiest camera that I can't even fully manipulate with my mouse, does not have a nearly as catchy and unique and awesome soundtrack, has a much uglier and less polished aesthetic, completely lacks any of the same charm, has much less in the way of content, and generally feels like it should be a free unity game?

Dejobaan games, you have earned yourself a customer for life.
