Tales from Space: About a Blob

The Gamers Temple
15 March 2011
  • Excerpt: If you let game titles do your thinking for you, Tales from Space: About a Blob tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the PSN title. The game is about a blob from space, and that's pretty much it. Players who have warm, fuzzy memories of A Boy and His Blob and its stunning Wii remake might be tempted by the word “blob” alone, as I was, but Tales from Space has more in common Katamari Damacy than the hero(s) of blob games past.

  • Conclusion: Like Limbo, Flower and Braid before it, Tales From Space: About A Blob is the type of release that makes you thankful for the existence of downloadable gaming and the freedom that it gives developers to create lean, punchy and engaging games that would have no doubt been doomed to obscurity had they been launched full-price at retail.

  • Conclusion: Tales From Space: About a Blob is a very unique and charming game that provides a nice change of pace.  Clocking in at approximately four hours my first time through, and providing a decent challenge, I found it to be good value for its fifteen dollar price tag. If you’re a fan of the genre and/or collection games such as the Katamari franchise, you will most-likely enjoy it quite a bit.

1 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Die Entwickler von DrinkBox Studios haben mit „ Tales from Space: About a Blob “ ihr Erstlingswerk abgeliefert. Ob es spaßig ist, alles und jeden aufzuessen, oder ob das Spiel Ihnen die letzen Haare vom Kopf frisst, können Sie in unserem Review lesen. Für alle Fans des Filmklassikers „Blob, Schrecken ohne Namen“ aus dem Jahre 1958, mit dem grandiosen Steve McQueen gibt es nun ein im Grunde ähnliches Spiel dazu.
  • Pros: Überzeugender Grafikstil, Koop-Modus, Blobs Verformungen, Teils knifflige Aufgaben, Physikalische Interaktionen mit der Umwelt
  • Cons: Nichts Neues, Sich wiederholende Abschnitte

  • Excerpt: C'est bien connu, les extraterrestres ne sont pas les bienvenus sur notre belle planète bleue. On les séquestre, on les brutalise et on finit généralement par les autopsier dans le seul but de faire des vidéos à grand spectacle. Nos voisins stellaires ne comptent pas laisser ce type d'agissements impunis et nous envoient une division de blobs gloutons pour tous nous dévorer...
