Tap My Katamari Review – Not the Katamari Game I’m Looking For | Mobile

katamari_iconTap My Katamari actually came out a while ago but I’m only checking it now because of a recent update. I was a fan of the original Katamari games on console and loved how quirky and strange they were. There was something really enjoyable about controlling and rolling up a giant ball of random objects to near planet size that made it super fun and addicting. If you were a fan of Katamari, you may want to give Tap My Katamari a try, though I’m not sure you’re going to like what you see.

While the art and music in Tap My Katamari is quite good and pretty true to the original games, its the gameplay that isn’t. Instead of you controlling a ball and moving around a 3D world, Tap My Katamari is entirely set in 2D and the only thing you do is tap the screen, over and over again. That’s it. Tapping the screen causes your Katamari to move, picking up objects along the way.

As you travel further and further, you’ll also gain coins that you can spend to upgrade the little Prince allowing him to move greater distances quicker. Not only that, you can spend coin on “cousins” that fly alongside you which also help you cover greater distances. You’ll need to upgrade these two areas to really cover great distances.

But yeah. That’s pretty much all you do in this game. You just tap mindlessly to collect coins so you can upgrade your prince and buy cousins, which in turn gets you further so you can get more coins and repeat the process. It’s pretty mindless and can be kind of fun at the beginning, but gets very repetitive quick.
