    Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi is back with his first PlayStation 3 title, Noby Noby Boy. The title is actually one of the saner elements of one of the most bizarre 'games' we've ever come across, ever. Read on to find out our thoughts.

    This game is full of innuendo. It's awesome. I have no idea what I'm doing, but occasionally I fly up to the sun and feed the girl my love and it makes me smile.

    Anyone got big enough to eat a cloud yet? I can eat houses and pretty much anything else, but the clouds are still beyond my noby noby boy's abilities.

    It looks like fun, I would buy it for my friend just to play it on his system.

    What's the longest you've ever got your boy? Last night after a load of effort I managed to strain him up to 5,800ish meters! What a long boy!

    Not sure, but it's not that long - I haven't been able to eat the houses yet. I did manage to put one on top of a cloud though, that was pretty cool. :D

    I don't understand how it can get 9/10.


    That said, I have no idea what I'd give it.

    Y'know. I have an urge to spend 100 times the cost of this game to buy the console upon which to play it! Shame Katamari and this aren't available on PC :(

    If they were smart they'd do a steam release and hit it big like Audiosurf and other cheaper indie type games, but they're basically owned by Sony as far as I know so PSN only.

    Because Wikipedia is always a source of factual information! That made me lolsauce.

    I can't believe a £3.19 game is tempting me to spend a couple hundred quid on a PS3...

    I downloaded this and i want my £3 back!

    I just dont get it at all. You wonder around eating things and can then poop them out at high speed. After 3 minutes you have done everything this game can pretty much do and the camera is awful. It seems to focus on the center of your body so once you get over a certain length you can even see where your going unless you zoom all the way out to space.

    Buy flower instead. Its prettier, plays nicely and is strangely soothing even though its very linear.
