    • Play is controlled with the analog sticks only. No buttons
      to press. No combos to cause distress. Featuring
      ball-rolling and object-collecting gameplay mechanics of
      mesmerizing fluidity, reduced to Pac-Man simplicity,
      through pure absurdity.


    • Dimensions change drastically as your clump grows
      from a fraction of an inch to a monstrous freak of nature.
      Go from rolling along a tabletop to ravaging through city
      streets, picking up momentum and skyscrapers along the
      way.


    • Two-player battle mode lets you compete in a race to
      grow the biggest ball of stuff. Even the competition can
      be picked up, if your opponent is unfortunate enough to
      get in your way.


    • Enjoy quirky, infectious humor throughout—from the
      insanely cosmic animations, to the wacky and wonderful
      musical stylings, to the royally contagious storyline that's
      undoubtedly like no other.

Back of Keep Case (USA):
    The rolling, sticking, never-stopping, ever-swelling clump of stuff that makes a star out of everyone and everything.

    When the King of All Cosmos accidentally destroys all the stars in the sky, he orders you, his pint-sized princely son, to put the twinkle back in the heavens above. How, you ask? By rolling everything and anything on Earth into clumps, so he can replace what's missing in space.

    Pick up everything!
    Go from rolling along a tabletop to ravaging through city streets, picking up momentum and skyscrapers along the way.

    You're already on a roll!
    Play is controlled with the analog sticks, with no buttons to press or combos to cause distress. Featuring object-collecting gameplay mechanics of mesmerizing simplicity and absurdity.

    Roll over the competition!
    Two-player battle mode lets you compete in a race to grow the biggest ball of stuff. Even the competition can be picked up!
