Dec 16, 2011TWEotW is a fun Katamari Damacy clone, but it suffers from two major things that drop my score down to a 5. First off, the game is super short. I managed to 100% the game twice (I had to do it again when the bladder achievement got added) in about 5 hours. There's only a few levels, you don't have much time on them, and aside from Cafe Internet you can A+ them all on your first or second attempt.
The second major issue is that the collision and map design for this... are pretty awful at times. The previously mentioned Cafe Internet is a good example, as one quick glance on youtube or the steam forums will show that this level will make you rage harder than anything Katamari Damacy ever did, and not even by intent. It's so easy to get literally stuck in this due to horrible collision, cramped level design, and many things bouncing you across the level as though you were a pinball. Were it not for the awful collision related bugs, you could probably beat the game and get every single achievement in about an hour.
Would I recommend this? Only if you're a diehard Katamari Damacy fan, or if you're a normal Katamari Damacy fan and there's a big sale going on (I'd say this is worth $1.)
Still, it's an awesome idea and I'd love to see Dejobaan expand this into a full game, though given the negative reception this has been given, and judging by their responses to said reception, I doubt that'll ever happen. It's a shame, we PC gamers need a good Katamari knockoff, at least until some magical day when we can play Katamari Damacy on our PCs without having to rely on PS2 emulation.… Full Review »
Nov 20, 2013Well Dejobaan Games have created yet another truly absurd title to add to their game releases. I must admit I did have a little fun with this. Its premise is simple; eat things that are smaller than you to gradually grow in size… Yeah, it’s casual simple fun! I got about an hour’s enjoyment from this title because there aren't that many levels and it’s just more of the same thing over and over again! Would I purchase this for £5.99 absolutely not, it doesn't provide anywhere near enough value for that; but picking it up in the sales for a couple of quid to pass a rainy afternoon will certainly not feel like a waste of money!… Full Review »
