This review is from: De Blob (Wii) (Video Game)
Well, De Blob arrived this morning, and my four and a half year-old-son and I have been playing it on and off all day. We just can't leave it alone, and for me (not a big Wii fan) that is quite something! Son says it's 'the best game ever' and he's already managed to complete the first phase of Chroma City (the last resort), so certainly the lower level of the game is easy enough. No doubt Dad will be roped in to help after work...
The concept of travelling around Chroma City as Blob, trying to restore colour (and free the poor little Graydians, former Raydians who have been enslaved by the I.N.K.T corporation) by rolling over and bumping into buildings and objects and completing challenges is very compelling.
I'm sure it will keep us adults going for quite some time, though I think the story mode will quickly become too hard for young children. Luckily, there is a 'free paint' mode which allows you to roam around any levels you've already unlocked without any enemies, challenges or a time limit-this is great for little children who just want to move Blob around randomly painting things, or indeed anyone who just wants to get the hang of controlling Blob before going through the story mode.
Certainly a great non-violent family game to suit most ages.
