PSP

Overview:
Grab your katamari and start rolling up the world!

Gameplay:
What is a katamari? It’s a colorful ball that things will stick to as you push it around. Sort of like a giant snowball, but without the snow. As the prince you are given a katamari and asked to roll up specific things that will eventually be used to make islands for different creatures. There’s time and size requirements, so start pushing and fast! As your ball grows, you can start rolling over larger items like cows, boats, and even people. Don’t worry, they don’t die, they just scream and wave their arms and legs. Since the PSP is a handheld system, the controls are sometimes awkward, but experiment and find what works for you. There are a few ways of pushing and directing the ball. (Similar versions of this game are also available on PS2 if you don’t have a PSP.)
