    maastas's Katamari Damacy (PS2)

    [January 25, 2008 07:07:11 PM]
    2nd GAMELOG ENTRY #2

    GAMEPLAY:
    As the Katamari grows to larger sizes, the game seems to get easier. The bigger it gets, the more (bigger) things you can pick up, making the rolling faster. Compared to the begining when you can only pick up small objects and you have to go around the bigger ones, which makes you lose time.

    Along with the fact that you can pick up almost everything in your path with a big Katamari, you are able to jump into other platforms more easily then with a small Katamari. Because as the Katamari grows, the obsticles seem to get smaller.

    DESIGN:
    The game has a three dimentional, cartoon view. The settings, up to the point where Ive played, are different scenarios inside and outside a home. There are many things that you can pick up, anything you can imagine could be on the the grownd is. Some of these objects are not common in America, and they give the game a Japanese aspect.

    The King of the Cosmos is very cruel to you. Whenever you dont pass a level, he tells you how useless you are and he makes fun of your punny body. This "put down" attitude adjustment you get makes you want to continue playing in order to prove to yourself that you can grow the Katamari to the right lenth.

    Also, as you progress through stages you get to view a bigger set. This is another incouraging factor in the design of the game. As you play more, you get to roll up bigget things, and for some reason we are amused at picking up things we cant pick up in real life. Therefore, this part of the design of the game achieves the purpose of keeping you interested and ingaged.

    The only thing that I noticed was that it is not easy to change directions while rolling the Katamari. once you stop rolling you can do a 180 degree turn, but it is not easy to do other types of turns. It would be nice if you could be able to make turns more freely.

    2nd GAMELOG ENTRY #1

    SUMMARY:
    In the game Katamari Damacy, the King of the Cosmos accidentally destroys all of the stars in the sky (even though he admits to have enjoyed destroying them). But now, since you are his son (the prince), you have to fix his mistake.

    The objective of the game is to roll a "ball", called the Katamari, all around earth to collect items that can be placed in the sky by the King of the Cosmos as a replacement for a star.

    GAMEPLAY:
    In the beggining you get a tutorial of how to controll the Katamari, and the different things you can do when rolling it around. In the beggining I was a little confused because they just leave you alone in a "room" with different moves to do in order for you to learn the different things you can do. i was stuck there for a while because i couldnt figure out how to do one of the moves i was supposed to do. So this part of the tutorial could be a little more explanatory so that the player, like me, knows what they are supposed to be doing.

    Then I started to roll the Katamari on different scenarios, which are like levels. i soon realized that you need to pick up small things first in order to make your ball bigger. The bigger it gets, the more big things you can pick up. Because there is a time limit on each one of the levels, I didnt get the Katamari to be big enough the first couple of tries. But then the more I played, the better i got at it.

    I began to realize that if I started picking up bigger things (as big as possible) since the beggining, rather than starting with the smallest ones, the Katamari began to grow more rapidly. And therefore I was able to make the size they were asking me for in a fraction of the time allowed, and I even had time to make it bigger than needed.
