Who could have imagined that when aliens finally arrived on Earth they would crave nothing more than tasty jelly beans and a bit of human companionship? The relationship between the titular boy and his blob friend is at the heart of this beautiful...

It?s been over two decades since the NES original?A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia was released to hordes of adoring fans ? myself included. Since that time, the classic disappeared off my radar, and I doubt I would have ever thought about it...

Don?t pass this one by. Sitting at less than half the standard price of a 360 or PS3 game, A Boy and His Blob offers more entertainment and replay value than most Wii titles can attest to.

In 1989, Absolute Entertainment published a bizarre puzzle-platformer called A Boy and His Blob for the NES. It featured a refugee alien blob that could change into a variety of shapes when fed different flavors of jellybeans by his young earth...

So I'd recommend against spending five dollars to download this one. It's often spoken of with reverence, and it's gone down as a classic of the NES library with a lot of name recognition still in place to this day -- but it's just not a very good...

The NES original arrives on Virtual Console, hot on the heels of its recent Wii remake.

Beauty and Brains Abound in this Blob

Beautiful game world with stellar animation, fantastic old-school style gameplay

An excellent and highly original puzzle-infused joyride of near-epic proportions.

I remember growing up playing A Boy and His Blob for the NES with my best friend John. We never really got very far in the game but just the fact that they made a game called "A Boy and His Blob" was reason enough to make us play it. It's funny to see...

It takes a heart made of ice to not find this adorable

Hug button is heart-meltingly adorable ; Jellybean puzzles are fun to experiment with ; Impressive, expressive art style

Chaining bean moves can be a pain ; Bean-eating birds are an even bigger pain ; Trial-and-error approach to puzzles can get tedious

With highly inventive gameplay and outstanding story-book visuals, the updated adventure of A Boy and His Blob is absolutely worth checking out again or for the first time. However, it’s the tender, subtle and often touching relationship between the...
