Summary: A formless blob of goo isn't the most likely protagonist for a game that involves a lot of running and jumping, but when said blob comes from space, well, all bets are off. In Tales from Space: About a Blob, you control a gelatinous orb that is trying to escape captivity and leave a cartoonish version of Earth. This blob's basic locomotive capabilities are augmented by a few neat powers that are responsible for most of the game's appeal.
Pros: Magnetic locomotion is cool, Collectibles, target times, and online leaderboards offer challenges, Amusing drop in/drop out cooperative play
Cons: Lack of challenging puzzles, Frustrating final boss
