Anyone who is after a slice of non-violent, humourous and genuinely charming game should invest in this product and prove to developers they can take a chance and create real games for the Wii.
This game is easily played by children and adults alike, a must have for some simple and addictive fun for all the family :)
The game is set in a treehouse which acts as the hub for exploring the beautifully realised game world which is only improved by the delicate, haunting soundtrack. The blob in question is a changling that can transform into a variety of shapes and functions to assist the boy on his path through assorted perils. The controls, though not entirely intuitive are quickly mastered and if any mistakes are made in play, they are due to you and not an unfair limitations of the game.
Rather sweetly, your character doesn't die but falls asleep when overcome.
All in all, a delightful game that won't age and will surely be very collectable in due course.
The plot of the game is simple enough. Blob has escaped his home world of Blobolonia, where an evil emperor has forcibly taken complete power and has crash-landed on Earth looking for help. Blob is found by a 6 year old boy and together they form a close friendship and set about attempting to free Blobolonia from the emperor's clutches. Much to the boy's surprise and delight, Blob is capable of shape-shifting upon devouring different flavoured jelly beans. This is where much of the game-play begins to take off.
The game is broken up into 4 `worlds', each comprising of 10 standard levels and 10 bonus levels. On each level the boy and Blob must make their way from start to finish performing the usual sort of things associated with platformers, e.g. jumping gaps, avoiding enemies, dodging dropping obstacles, etc. However, the tactical use of `jelly beans' is also essential to success. Is an enemy in the way and you can't jump over him? Drop a red jelly bean in front of him, Blob will eat it and turn into a hole which the enemy will fall down into. Can't get to a high platform? Drop a black jelly bean and Blob will devour it and turn into a ladder! There are 15 different jelly bean `powers' in all and they really are all quite ingenious and humorous to watch.Read more ›

Not only does this game bring me back to the old NES game, but it also has it's own flavor. It is fun and the difficulty is well enough dosed to almost never become frustrating. Read morePublished on 6 Sept. 2013 by John
