King Oddball is a physics based puzzle game with a big emphasis on the puzzle aspects and player skill. The player, as the titular King Oddball, must clear each level of enemies such as tanks, helicopters and soldiers. Enemies are destroyed by hurling large boulders at them, and making sure each boulder crushes more than one enemy. The boulders are swung at the tip of King Oddball’s enormously long tongue, which swings back and forth in a pendulum like motion. The player must simply press a button to release the boulder. Finding hidden moustaches also features.
