King Oddball wants to end the world.
We don’t know why he wants to end the world–maybe the neighborhood bully stole his ice cream, or someone cut him off in traffic.
All we know is that for some odd reason, we want to help him.
You play as King Oddball, who decides to end the world by throwing boulders, candy and grenades with his tongue.
Yes, the premise is incredibly silly–but the underlying gameplay is rock-solid. As King Oddball swings on his axis, players tap [X] at the right moment to send boulders flying at enemies. Because it is a one-button game, both young and old can enjoy King Oddball without worrying about complex control schemes.
At first, you just send boulders flying in the general direction of your target. Soon, you’ll be making feverish calculations in your head as you cause elaborate chain reactions and rampant destruction with a single stone.
The dreamlike visuals pop off the screen while accompanied by a peppy, offbeat soundtrack.
You start King Oddball at the bottom-left corner of a 12×12 square map. Work your way through over 120 levels of addictive, eccentric, boulder-throwing action to end the world.
Add to these levels the special missions found in the Boom Challenge, One Rock Challenge, Hall of Diamonds, Halloween-themed pack and AN ENTIRE SECRET MOUSTACHE WORLD and you get over 450 levels!
Buying the game on PS4 also gives you the PS Vita edition at no extra charge.

King Oddball is a unique and enjoyable physics puzzler worth every penny.
King Oddball ends the world, whereas the Bible teaches us God does so.
