Developers at DrinkBox might have taken all the criticism positively in their stride when they first released Tales from Space: About Mutant Blobs. This can be inferred from the near perfect job they have done for the second version of Mutant Blobs. The Katamari hangover is gone and the days of a new platformer has arrived, thanks to Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. The 30 levels would leave the gamer in you craving for more of the blob that travels over a 2Dplane while gobbling up anything that it sees moving!
All you are interested while playing this game would be guiding a Blob to gobble up anything and everything, irrespective of whether it’s an enemy tank or just a small box. The size of your Blob keeps growing with every feast while you keep jumping and moving from pressurized tubes to moving platforms.
The most amazing aspect of the game comes in the form of its platformer experience which even overshadows the sharp and visually enchanting graphics. Initially, the levels are quite easy where you keep jumping and moving from one place to another with just a few point bubbles or blob friends to collect. But with the passage of time, the blob pulls out some inspiring antics that you might never have anticipated. You find your blob possessing some amazing powers like pulling yourself midair, zero-gravity flying and even magnetic powers to get the better of your enemies – all this is just great fun.
Gamers and critics who complained about not putting D-pad to use for the earlier version would be more than pleased to learn that this time they get the chance to use their analog stick or D-pad to their maximum potential (a high five to the developers at DrinkBox). Controls have also been tweaked to make things even more interesting and your blob is allowed to even eat objects by while rolling over them. This is a perfect game for the Vita with all the Vita motion and touch controls. Levels that use Tilt-a-Blob are the most challenging and death comes easily (that too without any warning signals). Though things might look a little easier initially but as the game progresses the levels and tasks turn out to be more and more challenging.
Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack made me its instant fan and with all the great gameplay and visually attractive cut-scenes in store, I just couldn’t get enough of my lovely Blob. Earning gold medals or collectibles would certainly keep you hooked for hours – that’s a guarantee. Priced at only $8, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is nothing short of a steal!
