Tap My Katamari, How to

Tap My Katamari is a casual tapping game.

My strategy– just give it a go.

It’s much like the Playstation video games. You are Prince, a little green alien who rolls up stuff. The more you roll, the bigger your Katamari gets. 

In this game, you tap and gain gold coins. With the coin money, you can level up Prince to be faster or you can buy your cousins to help you. The faster you are the more money you can get and the  faster you complete missions (reaching certain levels). Your cousins help you by having different attributes that increase your skills. Your levels and cousins stay with you until you turn your Katamari into a star.

You get candy from your father, the King of the Cosmos. You can use the candy for power ups or for buying stars.

The point of making the Katamari is to get stars. You need Prince to reach level 600, and then you can trade it in for stars. The bigger the Katamari, the more stars you get. With  stars, you can get gifts which increase different abilities, and you get to keep these gifts for your game’s entirety  (unlike Prince’s level and your cousins). Once you trade in your Katamari, Prince starts at level 1 again.

I attempted to capture the King turning Prince’s Katamari into a star.

Also for each goal (world), you get timed.

There are more details of course, but that’s the basics.

I enjoy the game because you can go your own pace and play whenever. When you’re not playing, Prince and his cousins will continue to roll the Katamari on their own (slower, of course, since you are not tapping).

In addition to being casual, I enjoy the game because of its colorful and fun graphics, which is similar to the art in the original video games! It’s aesthetically pleasing to my eyes.

It is also aesthetically pleasing to my ears– the music is great as well! This is another similarity to the original video games. The music is calming and catchy. Some songs have words and some don’t. 

Have you played the game? What’s your strategy? Do you have any questions?
