Some call this the PSP's Super Monkey Ball, but they have to mumble it from the gutter because they're charlatans and fools. It's more than that. Yes, it's a puzzle game where you move a ball indirectly by tilting the level itself, but the similarities end there. The ball grows as it picks up other objects, and loses weight when attacked - it can even be split into smaller parts to pass tight obstacles. So it's actually more like the PSP's Katamari Damacy plus Mercury and also Super Monkey Ball. Simple, sure, but highly addictive.
WHY'S IT ESSENTIAL?
It's utterly cute, and just perfect for those snatched moments of handheld play.
