What Gamespot Users have to say about A Boy and His Blob

  • User Rating 8.5

    Giving jellybeans a whole new place in the world is just one of the great things about this stand-out game.

    The "Retro Revival" theme is definitely not something that has gone quietly the past couple of gaming generations. Many publishers and developers have taken many seemingly forgotten namesakes and trie...

    One of the most touching games that I've laid my eyes on!

    A Boy and His Blob is a puzzle platformer game for the Wii. It is reincarnation of the NES game of the same name. Now, I haven't played the original, but I have heard of people complaining about it's ...

    A fun lovely beautiful game that offers different levels of challenge

    As a natural part of the sudden 2-D Renaissance that has been occurring as of late it is expected that a few hidden gems of the past, that perhaps weren't even very polished, would gain another chance...

    This a charming game that evokes memories of a more innocent time. Perfect for kids and parents to play together

    A Boy and His Blob never pretends to be anything more than a family-friendly video game. I don't believe that the developers intended to make a fortune or garner critical acclaim for their work. It se...

    Every 2-D game I've played has pretty much sucked. This one didn't.

    PRESENTATION: 9.5/10 The boxart is bland (no colour) on the front, then on the back its freaking amazing. This game is definately a puzzle game and the story is alright. With 4 worlds,40 levels, eac...

    Cartoony visuals hide a game that is challenging, charming, and just plain fun. Well Worth playing.

    Rated on January 30, 2010 by homsarrunner3

    I have to admit, I was tentative at first. A cutesy, cartoony game that was based off a game from the 80s? A new, hip youngster like me wouldn't like this, right? I am very, very pleased to admit that...

    I thought this would be like the Little Kings story but it isn't. Don't get me wrong it is a good game but it's for children. So far I've played it i haven't killed anything and those slugs or what ev...
