Clever platform puzzling at a gentle pace
A Boy and His Blob was first released for the Nintendo Wii in 2009. Designed to appeal to a wide audience, the game had attractive cartoon visuals, a gentle pace, and clever but intuitive manipulation of Blobs ability to change form. It was successful in it goals, creating a beautiful watercolor world, filled with adventure.
Seven years on, the game has come to PC, Mac, and most other platforms. It retains all of its charm, but the pace and quality of its visuals feel a little dated in HD.
