Blobster review (iPod/iPhone)July 25, 2011
♫ “Let’s get physical, physical
I wanna get physical”
10 word description: Platformer; blob character, various enemies, physics, 40 levels, many power-ups.
10 word review: Very entertaining montage of every platform game feature imaginable. Recommended.
You will like this if you enjoy: Platform games. Well designed and polished games.
The good news: A lot of thought (and plagiarism, obviously) has gone into making this a very fun and addictive game. The levels are nicely designed, central character is amusing and the various elements (physics, power-ups, enemies, very high jumps) all come together really well. Controls work well, however…
The bad news: At times, the moving and jumping mechanic (pull down to slingshot the blob guy, rather than tap to jump) interrupts the flow of the game, meaning that you are often stopping in place before launching, rather than moving and jumping fluidly as you might have expected.
Arcadelife verdict: Very good. Graphics, gameplay, controls (with slight reservation about the jumping), level design … everything is well conceived and polished. Anyone remotely interested in platforming on their iPod/iPhone should have a look at this one.
Arcadelife rating: 90/100
Version reviewed by Arcadelife is 1.0
