A Boy and His Blob

 

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.

A Boy and his Blob

 

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...

A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia (2009) on Wii

 

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.

A Boy and His Blob Review

 

Beauty and Brains Abound in this Blob

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

May get overlooked for being a 2D game

Like last year's WarioLand: Shake It, only with more depth and characters that are actually appealing, A Boy and His Blob proves that hand-drawn 2D design is far from dead - and not necessarily relegated to the downloadable game realm. It may be a...

A Boy and His Blob (Wii)

 

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...

A Boy and His Blob

 

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...

The first game ever with a Hug button. Awww...

There are a handful of other features showing Wayforward is getting this right, such as widescreen 480p support for a fully 2D game, and adding classic controller and even working on getting Gamecube controller support working, but the standout feature...

E3 2009: A Boy and His Blob

 

One of the games that has been somewhat lost in the shuffle at E3 this year is Majesco and Way Forward's A Boy and His Blob. The game, shown exclusively up on Majesco's media-only meeting room, is a gorgeous reimagining of the classic NES title by the...
