and comparisons to a strategy game have worried me rather.

Hmm, I don't follow that comparison. It plays very similar to a 2D Zelda game in how you deal with each screen.

I mentioned it because all the enemies move and attack in different patterns, a little like chess except when you move so does your opponent but as I said above that's not all there is to the game & it'd be a real shame if you dropped it because one tiny aspect resembles a genre you aren't a fan of.

I mean, the rest is a roguelike... Razz

It's still up there amongst my current games, which means I do intend to give it another try.  I did feel the strategy beats (ho ho) when I played it though.  I ran into a screenfull of wolves very near my starting point, and it felt like with precise planning and movement and a bit of time to think about those things you could clear them all in a blaze of glory.  Of course I didn't have that time to plan and got slaughtered.

Yes, I think it's in a weird space of being intuitive, but counter to convention. Takahashi is notably not that big into videogames in general, and I think when you realise this, you see how the controls make perfect sense. As people familiar with how the sticks are usually used, Katamari feels weird, but if you were coming to the controls for the first time you'd think "this makes sense".

That's odd, because in a way the timed high-score challenge feels like the most gamey of game concepts to me.  (Maybe not these days?)  

In other news: the story cut-scenes with the cuboid kids.  They're just so, so Japan.

Played a bit of Giv VI the other night.

The load times are awful but once you get into a game then it's fine. Just I don't know how much I'm going to play off this with lack of goals, which I think I'll go into more detail when I'm done with the game.

Still considering what I traded in for it and the other game I got, then it be decent trade-in or sell on eBay.

I need to avoid buying CIV VI if I ever want to speak to another human being again. Laughing

Like a strategy version of Undertale... I’d be interested in that!
