You Can Search the nooks and crannies of the entire internet kingdom for a decent Katamari Damacy clone, and you'll probably find nothing more than a 2D Flash version (which incidentally is really fun, and you can find it by pointing your browser towards games/Katamari-Damacy).
Dig a little further though and you might stumble upon The Blob, which, while bearing a passing resemblance to the demented PlayStation roll 'em up (and therefore demanding the obvious comparison), is very much ploughing its own colourful furrow.
You're a blob, and you've crash-landed on a planet devoid of pigment, apart from some primary-coloured civilians. Roll over these people to grow bigger and to absorb their hue-y goodness. Roll over a yellow guy to become yellow, for example, and then roll over a blue guy to become - think back to primary school art class here - green. In your colourful state, you bounce into buildings, trees and cars to colour them in, making your way through the city and gradually making the whole place look nicer.
Painting the city is addictive, and probably therapeutic on some level too. There are 17 special landmark buildings that require you to hit a target somewhere on their surface while painted a specific colour - this usually involves a 'gently does it' Marble Madness-siy\e approach, all the while avoiding absorbing the wrong colour on the way to your intended destination.
There are also some coins to collect, if you're into that sort of thing. INKT agents will turn you black if you absorb them, meaning you have to dip yourself in water to become clean again, at the expense of body mass.
