In Katamari Damacy, players take on the role of Prince of the Cosmos, whose father the great King managed to inadvertently knock the stars out of the sky. As the prince, a player’s duty is to clean up the King’s mess and re-create the starry skies by rolling around the cleverly designed locations to collect objects and build up their ‘katamari’ — a Japanese word for clump or large mass. The catch is that it’s not the quality or the actual number of objects gathered that is most critical to the player’s success, but instead the sheer size of the player’s ‘katamari’ that is most important. Along the way, players can roll over hundreds of unusual objects of all sizes and shapes including cookies, cars, mermaids, planes, clouds and even people. The larger the player’s ‘katamari’ grows, the more objects the player can amass along the way — thus proving if you want to succeed in Katamari Damacy — size does matter. Katamari Damacy features a single-player story mode and a two-player battle mode. The simple game play mechanics allow for optimal ball rolling and object collecting fun.
