Tales From Space: About a Blob Review

 

Though it offers few thrills, About a Blob serves up plenty of palatable platforming action.

Magnetic locomotion is cool ; Collectibles, target times, and online leaderboards offer challenges ; Amusing drop in/drop out cooperative play

Lack of challenging puzzles ; Frustrating final boss

The accessible difficulty level comes to an abrupt end with the final boss, who forces you into repeated patterns of precision jumping that are both aggravating and incongruous. Yet, despite ending on a sour note, About a Blob is a very palatable...

Tales from Space: About a Blob Review

 

About a Blob is the newest platformer to squelch its way to the PlayStation Network. Is it worth the download?

At its worst, you're dying twenty times in a row because you can't switch back from magnetism to electricity quickly enough, or forget which of the shoulder buttons attracts or repels. Sadly, those annoying bits absorb much of the impact of the good...

Pulling off both nostalgic and fresh is hard, but that's exactly what About a Blob does. My biggest complaint? I wish it didn't end so soon, which speaks well of its quality.

Tales From Space: About A Blob

 

Drinkbox Studios' Tales from Space: About A Blob got us thinking that there really should be a genre created called ‘Blob ‘em ups'. Through the likes of LocoRoco, A Boy and His Blob, De Blob, Silly Putty, The Maw and many more, the humble, amorphous...

Like Limbo, Flower and Braid before it, Tales From Space: About A Blob is the type of release that makes you thankful for the existence of downloadable gaming and the freedom that it gives developers to create lean, punchy and engaging games that would...
