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.

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.

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.

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..

The Wonderful End of the World is a fun little casual game.

Visually the game looks nice for it's time. There are were no issues with textures not appearing- though stretching appeared to be an issue in some maps. Some maps are missing boundaries or have poorly textured exteriors. 3/5

The audio in the game is quite repetative, and with no option to turn off the title screen music, nor the sound effects, this can be quite irritating. The audio quality is reasonable, with no major spikes or inconsistancies. 3/5

Mechanically the game is alright- there are problems with some items not being picked up when you interact with them. Some levels are significantly more challenging than others- due mainly to poor layout(One of the first levels is more difficult than the final level). There is an issue where the character will get stuck between models when the size is increased. 2/5

The Wonderful End of the World is a fun casual game- but it's worth nothing near its store price. I would suggest picking it up on sale if you want something to do for a few hours- or you could challenge yourself with the game's achievements. The game could be a whole lot better, but it could also be a whole lot worse.

Final numerical score for the lazy: 8/15

It might not be really long or polished, but it's the only game of it's kind on PC. In this game, you play as a marionette that is controlled by you, the player. You must gather as many objects as you can across multiple levels before a giant fish-headed demon eats the world and all who inhabit it. When you gather objects, you become bigger and bigger until you complete the level. It's really fun to start from being a small stick figure, and then become a giant that towers over the landscape. It's a bit short though, but that's not really bad in my opinion. My only gripes about this game are that the controls feel a little weird and that the difficulty is a bit inconsistent. Other than that, it's a WONDERFUL game!

This game was okay. I wish there was a neutral review button. Since it's a clone of Katamari, meh. The gameplay is almost strictly worse than Katamari, and there is almost no humor in comparison, and far smaller levels. There is no clear grading system in-game, so you get to guess how well you did until the very end of each level. It's a good waste of time, but not a good waste of $10. Get this for $2 or less.

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.

A game where you get to walk around maps and consume everything. It is simple and fun for all ages. However it takes less than 1 hour to complete all 12 levels. More than that if you want to get all achievements which will require playing the game twice.

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.

Unless you REALLY need to scratch that Katamari itch, this probably wont be for you. I recommend playing one of those over this any day. It's a functional game, but it's missing the charm of Katamari. The stages leave much to be desired, the music and sound effects (with the exception of the main menu theme) are bland and boring, It's increddibly short, and overall the game just seems very unpolished.

This game has potential to be something, but it ends just being a lesser Katamari game.

I immediately got this game when I saw it. I have always loved the Katamari Series and I don't see why Namco Bandai just doesn't port Katamari Forever to the PC.

So this game is very much a Kamatari Clone. You pick up items sprawled around the ground by running into them and grow by picking up more items, which in turn allows you to pick up even more, bigger items.
The visuals are very simple and the music is fun, just as in the Katamari series.

I payed 1,99€ for the game and finished it in 1 1/2 hours, but those 90 minutes passed without me even noticing. You could get more out of it by trying to rank A+ in each of the 12 levels, but that would be very hard. The game definitely is a lot of fun if you like different experiences.
So decide for yourself if it's worth it.

One thing you should keep in mind is the technical limitations of this game.
The resolution locked at 1024x768 and there's no anti-aliasing without a way to change it. It doesn't look amazing streched up to 1920x1080, but it didn't bother me after 5 minutes.
The game also works fine with a Xbox360 controller, but only for moving your character. All the menus have to be controlled with your mouse and keyboard.

It's cute. I like the theme song, and it's an easy game as rolling around goes. Also there's a potato in the loading screen. <3

In short: This game is a cheap ripoff that learned nothing from the game design decision that made katamari damaci great. And while nearly every aspect of "The wonderful end of the world" could be criticised, from the horrible graphic design, to the confusing UI and complete lack of charm, it's probably faster to note that there is no promise anywhere in this Indie game. The Developers sat down, though really hard about katamari, and instead of trying to improve or match that PS2-Gem, found that they had absolutely nothing to say about it. No reedemable factors mean nobody should waste his time buying this.

Love this game! So much fun and the closest thing to Katamari that I could find. I like the levels and how quick they are. Allows for quick, fun gameplay.

It's a clone of Katamari, but it's charming, easy to play, perfect for casual pick-up-and-play gaming, and contains references to Discworld and Blues Brothers. Hard to dislike.

If you've ever wanted to play a Katamari game, I highly recommend that you do so. They're full of charm, great visual design & music, and a unique, intuitive control scheme.

If, on the other hand, you would like to play a game which has none of those things, this may be right up your alley.

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