I got this one for my kids for Christmas, together with a few others.We found out that this was the one the kids played most.The look and feel is gorgeous, the puzzles are of a reasonable difficulty and the violence is relatively limited – something I pay great attention to when it comes to my kids. Essentially as far as I have seen (we did not complete the game yet) it is limited to the death of the hero when he falls in water or from too high, or when he touches one of the big bad black blobs. In any case there are lots of restore points – the only problem I see with that is the classic issue of teaching the kids that death is not that important and that you have another chance anyway – but here is not the place to discuss that matter.One thing that would have been nice would have been to be able to save several games so that the members of the family could progress each at his own speed.It would also be nice to have a multiplayer mode but this is not practical with the nature of the game. Oh well.One good unadvertised surprised was the availability of the game in French and Spanish except for the voice (not a big deal considering the game). This may not be very important for most of the US customers but my kids speak both French and Spanish but little English.All in all one of the best games we have for our Wii.
Our toddler began playing this game with me, and it has become one of her favorite games And I couldn’t be more pleased.This gorgeous puzzle platformer is filled with beautiful landscapes, thought-provoking but solvable puzzles, and a minimum of "scary parts." It doesn’t have instructions or dialogue to read, but the level design teaches you how to play, and is one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had playing a game–and it’s perfect for our little girl who isn’t quite reading yet!
I have to say, i love this game. I got this game for my energetic, clever 5 yr old son for christmas. After a first try it was cristened “too hard” and both kids played (age 5 & 9) mario bros….(which is a fun, frenetic energy game) then we gave blob another try. I’ll tell you exactly what i like about “blob” …it is a little difficult for a 5 yr old at times and may need some parent (or older sister) help…but it’s a THINKER. you have to figure out which jellybean you need to use, and in what order to accomplish the task..so, you need to use your BRAIN..lol..and it’s fun and rewarding when you DO get it right. I enjoy watching how my son thinks…sometimes we will think of the solution at the same time and he’ll say “wait! mom don’t tell me –it think i got it” The game also has (which i initally read in a review) engrossing, beautiful art….atmospheric..nice music, too. And it’s cute. Blob is cute…and the “bad guys” the “inky blobs” are almost a little humorous…we kept laughing after we dropped an anvil blob on the bad inky blob’s head and he just kept on walking with an anvil on his head.overall, it is a great game to play WITH your child…hope i can find somthing else like it when we finish it. Even my 9yr old daughter was challenged at times with this game. She helped him defeat the first “boss level” with all of us suggesting ideas in the background.i’d say 5 is the youngest age for this game, with no upper age limit, because i actually enjoy this game (-:
Both myself and my significant other (we are in our late 20s) enjoy puzzle/strategy games, so I purchased the Boy and his blob for Christmas. Generally, this is a cute game, but there’s no action/adventure, so the game can get a bit repetitive after awhile. For example, you only have like 3 types of jellybeans at any given time, so your blob can only do 1 of 3 things. While there are bad things that can hurt you, or you can hurt yourself (e.g., failure to use blob as balloon when jumping off), these are not nearly to the same level as the aggressive characters in say, Mario Brothers or Zelda.Graphics are beautiful and the game is certainly “kid-friendly.” Just be aware that the game can seem sort of “dull” compared to the action/adventure games, but as long as you recognize that this is a slower-paced game, you’ll enjoy it.
Written by my teenaged son, read and approved by me:Unlike several minimalist games, “A Boy and His Blob” proves to be a successful, heartwarming reimagining of an only average NES title with Ghibli-esque graphics and a touching tale of friendship, heroes, and… jelly beans.Story: 9.5/10 – You really don’t need to elaborate on friendship, which is what this game is all about. Instead of focusing its attention on convoluted storylines (which I don’t actually dislike), it turns its attention to a simple tale about a blob who, trying to save his home planet of Blobonia from a dark emperor, meets a young 8-year-old boy, who steadily develops a bond with him. The hug button further elaborates on this.Gameplay: 10/10 – So what if the boy can’t fight? His best friend, the blob, has over 17 transformations to access via several jelly beans that the boy has on hand. These transformations are used to solve environmental puzzles, attack enemies, and help the boy get around the world when he can’t do it on his own. Plus, several transformations (the Doppelganger and the robot) are very interesting to use.Characters: 10/10 – Although there are only two main characters, they convey the message, and although they can seem flat at times, their friendship with each other more than makes up for it.Fun: 10/10 – An excellent puzzle/platformer, with interesting jelly bean-based gameplay mechanics and excellent graphical designs to boot. Plus, it provides replay value with over 40 bonus levels to.
I recently got this game for my 7 year old daughter and it quickly became her favorite. She likes games with a combination of puzzle and story. So far her favorites have been Lost Winds (both 1 & 2) and Endless Ocean (both 1 & 2).This game has beautiful graphics that remind me of a Hayao Miyazaki movie (Spirited Away, Ponyo, etc.). It also has great background music and simple but good sound effects with voiceover. The story is simple but compelling to my daughter. Gameplay and animation are smooth and fluid. Puzzles are creative, starting very easy and become progressively more challenging. She loves being able to hug the blob – that was a great touch from the game designers. The game is a creative, gorgeous, fun world in which to play and solve puzzles.Negatives: The single biggest problem with this game is that there is only one save slot, so only one person at a time can have an ongoing saved game. This is an inexplicable oversight in such an otherwise well designed and thought out game. The controls seem a bit more complex than they need to be, but my daughter handles them OK. It doesn’t use the Wii motion or pointer and controls may have been simpler if it had. There is no multiplayer, nor did I expect one in a game like this.
Ok, if you played the NES game, you must buy this game. Don’t own a Wii, well get one, and then buy this game.I have never seen a retro-game upgraded as well as this one.It has beautiful & pleasant graphics, intuitive & fun game play, and some hard puzzles to figure out….but unlike the original NES game, you can’t irreparably shoot yourself in the foot by wasting a jelly bean you will only ever find once, or by dying on the last boss so you have to start the game over again.In fact, each level has various saves throughout, so you can continue from not terribly far back.
Even if you never played the original game, do not be scared! Pick this baby up and you will absolutely LOVE it! The controls are superb, the music is amazing, the graphics are breathtakingly beautiful and most of all it is a WONDERFUL game. Also, this is made by Wayforward company which is one of the very best game companies with amazing developers around in the game industry. PICK this up if you are looking for a great Wii Game because this game is very underrated and was not loved by enough people who do not have an open mind because they are too stuck with the call of doody games.
Although it isn’t as engaging as one might hope for a game that is as good to look at as this one is, I remember the days when creators (and myself) wished games could better represent moving cartoons. This game is a wish like that realized. It is HARD and I haven’t brain-muscled my way through it entirely, although I’ll pick it up again here and there.
This game is a puzzle game, and not really a platformer. This must be said. Some people will get stuck on certain levels, but there is always a way to get through. For instance, it took me 15 minutes to figure out that I had to feed my blob a trampoline bean in a hole and then push a rock on top of the trampoline to provide a step at a higher platform, because otherwise the bird kept eating the beans I would feed. This game is very similar to Braid for the PS3 which is a download, and usually gets a 5 out of 5 reviews. Braid is 15 dollars, but A Boy and his Blob is much easier and I enjoy the plot and setting better. A Boy and his Blob also uses the new
