The Wonderful End of the World has everything going for it. It's a fun game with a distinctive look and a fun soundtrack. It's a bit short, but the levels are replayable as you try to unlock the bonus level or try for perfect A+ grades across the board.
The Wonderful End of the World may be weird, like the game it's based on, but it's really good fun.
The Wonderful End of the World, if anything else, shows the gaming world to not always take itself so darn seriously. There’s a lot of creativity here, and it’s a game made by people who really love what they’re doing. It is saddening that the game is hindered by length, control and quality issues. One thing, though: I am now a fan of Dejobaan Games, and look forward to their future releases with earnest.
The action satisfies, from
the subtle way it adjusts the scale of your surroundings to the fulfilling
"thump" when you hit something bigger than yourself. But for a game with such a
colorful, anything-goes visual style, the actual design falls short. Twelve
maps are too few, and while some are original—like a world made of words,
or the homage to arcade games—others tend to recycle the same flowerbeds
and orangutans. The whimsical style comes off as shallow, and the developers
miss plenty of chances to work in jokes, satire, or anything else that could
catch your attention the third or fourth time across a level. And when you
finally finish the last map, there isn't so much as a voiceover to send you
off: The game ends anticlimactically, and you just have to imagine the heroine
dragging that giant ball of crap to a better tomorrow.
With its familiar but poorly implemented game mechanics, The Wonderful End of the World comes across as trying to be a PC take on the Katamari series. But for the USD$9.99 price tag, you’re better off saving the money for something else.
