    The charm and the fun offered by Katamari Amore are inversely proportional to our knowledge of the series. The ones who had the opportunity to try the game on other platforms or even in its previous iOS version, in fact, may be disappointed by the lack of real innovations. However the touch controls work good and you can get a good number of maps and modes by buying the first available pack.

    Katamari Amore is more Katamari, which will be good enough for a lot of people.

    KATAMARI's second release on the App Store could have taken the series so much further, but instead it's simply content in polishing what came years before while metering out its content in dribs and drabs.

    Rest assured that if you absolutely adore this series, Katamari Amore delivers more of the same. Whether or not that's good enough, though, is entirely up to you.

    iOS games can be made with love and joy, they can be funny and charming. Those are things the Katamari series has had in spades, and it's a shame they're missing here.

    It might be Amore for Namco, but our love affair with Katamari is all but over.
