The King of All Cosmos never sleeps
I apparently missed the announcement of Amazing Katamari Damacy, a free-to-play endless runner themed around Bandai Namco’s consumerism simulator. It released sometime ago on iOS (to which no one on staff can actually find a date and the official website doesn’t even exist), but is now available on Android. The game also received an update today for Apple devices, so we’ll just say that it came out right now!
Even though endless runners are a dime a dozen, Katamari seems like a decent fit for the genre. The game also captures the distinctive style of Keita Takahashi’s work and looks pretty sharp in the screenshots. I just wish I could find out more info on the game, like who developed it or why the app store states it can run on iOS 8, but requires iOS 10.
There are a few in-app purchases, but no descriptions (I notice a theme going on here). I would imagine you don’t need to bother with those, but I don’t have a device to test this out on. Either way, it is now available and more Katamari is never a bad thing.
