    Something that eats you without trying to kill or arouse you. 0

    There’s a great irony about the idea behind the sandbox genre. The whole term “sandbox game” originates from the idea that games are a synonym for a sandbox filled with sand and toys and things that a child can fiddle with to suit their imagination. The term “sandbox game” is incredibly ironic because most every sandbox game involves playing with things a little kid shouldn’t be playing with; in particular the lives of others. The “toys” in most sandbox game includes guns to murder people with, ...

    The most charming and strange game since Katamari Damacy 4

    In Noby Noby Boy, you control a creature named BOY, exploring surreal, randomly generated worlds featuring a plethora of objects animal, vegetable and mineral. While the art style is reminiscent of spiritual prequel, Katamari Damacy, it's also more basic. This, coupled with the utter chaos in each play session, makes the overall atmosphere kind of like if Terry Gilliam directed Dire Strait's music video Money For Nothing. BOY, (who looks like a shocked pug wearing a pink wetsuit) has two sets of...

    Game or Toy 0

    I remember when this game first came out. People weasking if this was a game or a toy. People said that games need to have goals or objectives for it to be considered a game. What I say is that's not true. A game is something that's fun above all. Noby Noby boy does this and does have a goal. The goal is to stretch boy to help girl grow so she can reach other planets that are in the solar system. This is very fun to do and try out diffrent ways to make him stretch. There are other thing to do to...

    So much potential, but ultimately falls flat on it's face. 0

    Before Noby Noby Boy was released, I was excited about it simply by the fact that it was from the creator of Katamari Damacy, a game I really love dearly and that they included a phat Mappy track in their promotional trailer. That being said, once I got the game, I was pretty disappointed.People should know going into this game, that there's not much of a game to Noby Noby Boy. The game puts you in control of "Boy," a strange worm-like creature with four legs. You're on a small sqaure board with...

    A Binge Gamer Review: Noby Noby Boy 0

    By Perry Piekarski • March 1, 2009 [Edit] For those who don’t already know, I’m a pretty big fan of the Katamari series. No, wait. That’s all wrong. Let me try again: On more than one occasion I’ve even gone as far as to describe it as “pure happiness in a can.” So where does gushing over a quirky hit game franchise fit into a review about the latest PSN budget title, Noby Noby Boy? Well, to be fair, I want everyone to understand that I’m coming at this as an established fan of cr...

    I just don't know. 1

    I have no idea what's going on. Now I'm not trying to be cute or funny here; I really don't understand what is happening in front of me. Noby Noby Boy is a game with no real goals, no real characters, and no real purpose. Oddly enough, it is this sense of pointlessness that makes the game so endearing. Playing Noby Noby Boy is akin to playing on a playground as a child; all of the devices to create a fun game are present, and it's up to you to piece them together into an entertaining whole. The ...

    Noby Noby Boy 0

    Noby Noby Boy is the next crazy vision from the director of Katamari Damacy, a PS2 game that I was surprised by the reaction to but was really pretty fun to play. Boy has a similar sort of feel but amps up the insanity quite a bit. Very basically, you control boy by moving the two control sticks to walk around with his head and butt. You eat things with the head and can poop them out with the butt. Eating lets you gain mass and stretch out farther, and you can fly around, wrap yourself around ob...

    doesnt do what it says on the tin, thankfully 0

      I'll be honest with you straight from the start, I had no idea what this game was when I bought it. The information on the PlayStation Store was vague, but for three quid I thought I could take a gamble. It turned out to be a good decision.. You are a worm called Boy. Confused? Well maybe if I mention that there's another worm called Girl floating in space on an endless mission to visit all the planets then things will become clearer. No? Okay then, well obviously once I explain that the grand...
