Roll It Up With Amazing Katamari Damacy On Mobile

1 Share

Players who didn't quite get their fill of past Katamari games, or even those who haven't yet jumped on the series, now have an all-new and delightfully-weird entry to check out. Amazing Kamatari Damacy is the latest game in Bandai Namco's addictively-absurd series, and it aims to bring that distinct Katamari flavor to mobile devices in a polished endless-runner-type experience.

The newest Katamari Damacy experience still presents the series' traditional sort of cobbling-together gameplay, abeit this time around with a few special twists. Chief among the new changes to the formula is a focus on an endless-runner style of gameplay, where players are dealing with a constant foward momentum and need only make minor adjustments to their course in order to pick up objects.

Amazing Katamari Damacy has other cool features, too, including the ability to collect objects like rainbow curios and golden gizmos in order to restore the stars to the heavens above. Players can also call in help from other characters like Fujio, Macho, Opeo, and others, and can compete with their friends for bragging rights through the game's leaderboards. Check out some of the title's new gameplay in the iOS and Android trailer featured below.

Amazing Katamari Damacy follows up on the series' previous mobile outing Touch My Katamari, which was a retooled version of the game that launched for the PlayStation Vita back in 2012. Unlike Touch My Katamari, Amazing Katamari Damacy has been designed specifically for the mobile platform, with Bandai Namco filing the trademark on the title back in 2016. The wait is over now, of course, and players can find Amazing Katamari Damacy available to download as a free-to-play title over on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

I spent a long time thinking about how to design a system for long-term organization and storage of subject-specific informational resources without needing ongoing work from the experts who created them, only to realized I'd just reinvented libraries.

'Which one?' 'I dunno, it's your house. Just check each object.' 'Check it for *what*?' 'Whether it looks like it might have touched a paper towel at some point and then forgotten to let go.' '...' 'You can also Google to learn how to check which things are using which resources.' 'You know, I'll just leave the towel there and try again tomorrow.'

Just the other day I was doing some painting. Forgot to save when I was done, woke up the next morning, and the living room was back to its boring eggshell again :(

Girl Keeps Giving This Poor Guy's Number Out to Thirsty Dudes, But He's Handling the Situation Beautifully

wrong number,FAIL,texting,funny,dating

Seriously man, that would suck after a while..or just be plain old weird. But for this dude, he chose to capitalize, prey on the situation. Kind of wonder if him and the chick have met at this point, or established a system.
