This game is the saviour of all who feel the Wii is simply a platform for family exercise games! The 2D graphics are superbly animated and give the impression your controlling a character in a Ghibli film, the Boy and Blob both move charmingly and precisely.The puzzles are entertaining and thanks to the fun nature of Blobs transformations there is scope for replay.
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.

When I saw this game I thought it could be quite fun, I was wrong ... it's fabulous! The artwork is beautiful, but not only that, it is simple to control, but not necessarily a simple game to complete. I enjoy platform games, but I'll admit I'm not the best at them, this doesn't require you to be an expert to pick it up and play, but it does require some patience and sometimes good timing, but all that comes through playing the levels and it can become addictive.

This game is easily played by children and adults alike, a must have for some simple and addictive fun for all the family :)

I received A Boy and his Blob for Christmas and it is one of the most brilliant and rewarding games I own. The art design is phenomenal, just like playing an interactive Studio Ghibli animation, and the puzzles are wonderfully thought out - everything is beautifully logical, so if you get stumped you can eventually think your way through it (not like some of the more abstruse and ambiguous puzzles in certain games). The over-riding quality is charm. I'm sure that's the last thing a lot of gamers would be interested in, but it works for me - it's the most charming game I've ever played. What's more, my 3 year old son loves sitting alongside me as I play and giggles with delight as he fathoms out the solution to the puzzles. By jiminy, it brings a tear to your eye! The only worrying thing is, given the amount I tucked away over Christmas, the game title rather too accurately describes us as we're sat there playing the game. Anyway, at the time of writing it's a tenner, and that's a steal so buy it, BUY IT NOW! If you're disappointed you must have a heart of stone.

This is a game that requires as much thought as dexterity. It's not a challenging game and my 7 year old enjoyed it very much, asking me for a little help as and when he needed it.

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.

Bought this game for our 4 year old son but a game that the whole family can join in on. Highly addictive and great graphics. If our son got stuck he would ask us for help - great problem solving game. Much more preferable to me that any Super Mario game as the music is more relaxing and you can stop and give blob a hug at any time!!

This is a very unusual game by today's standards. The first point to note is that is in 2D rather than the modern world's obsession with everything being in 3D. It should therefore come as no surprise that A Boy and His Blob (`ABHB') is actually a remake of the old Nintendo Entertainment System game of the same name from way back in 1990. However, this new edition is absolutely flawless, taking the grandious gameplay from the original and mixing it with beautifully hand drawn graphics for the modern Wii.

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.
