  1. By some combination of cunning and magic, it makes you a child again. It helps you rediscover the bottomless fascination and joy you had in discovering the properties of string, or sand, or animals, or Newtonian physics for the very first time. It makes you free to play, and happy to make your own entertainment, for hours on end.
  2. As the toy it is, do not expect missions or other accessories in addition to the short list of trophies that can be taken as a minimalist group of goals. The real experience is hidden behind the great objective of Noby Noby Boy - teamwork.

    One of the most soothing, effortlessly playable things you've ever likely had the pleasure to experience. It's a surreal and simple sandbox with no hidden subtleties or complex underlying system of progress and reward, no contrived meaning. It's appeal purely lies with its gentle, happy-go-lucky lunacy, and that's what makes it so bafflingly absorbing.

    Similar to Katamari Damacy but designed so a toddler could see the appeal. The controls require you to read the manual which may ruin it for younger players. The game takes the 'grow' objective from Katamari Damacy and throws away objectives and context, so the only thing you might play it for is just the fun of the moment, and the dozen or so hidden trophies. I got a few trophies during the first ten minutes and quickly nearly a third of them. Some of the remaining ones frustrate me, so I'm taking a break from the game. When it's on sale on PSN, the price of admission is fair for a peek into some polished but very experimental game design. Full Review »

    There's absolutely nothing you can do in this game. People say that there's no point and you should have fun, but how can I have fun if there's nothing to do? Full Review »
