Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack review
24 June 2012
Excerpt: It’d be easy to breeze right past Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!! in the PlayStation Store. It’s an indie game with a modest-sounding name, and if you didn’t know anything about it, you’d likely pass it up for more well-known titles. And that would be a crying shame. Vita gamers expect a level of quality from the likes of Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Lumines: Electronic Symphony, but this one comes completely out of nowhere, and mark our words, it’s the tiny $8...
Pros: Solid platforming mechanics, Quirky art and funny inside jokes, Sound integration of touch controls
Cons: Bonus stages are sometimes fidgety, Dying a lot in challenging (but fair) areas, That tense feeling as you try to cheat death
Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack (PSV) - Review
19 March 2012
Excerpt: Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a cheap puzzle-platformer available exclusively on the PlayStation Vita's download service. While it's not anything that's truly revolutionary, it's short, and fun, and it does what it needs to with a certain charm makes it an irresistible addition to your library.
Excerpt: The Vita was launched with a good-sized lineup of titles, but surprisingly some of the most fun that I've had with the new system so far has been thanks to the little downloadable gem Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. It oozes charm with its graphics, humor, and amorphous protagonist that gobbles up everything that gets in its way (even people), and backs it up with solid puzzle-platformer gameplay that makes great use of some of the Vita's special features.
Summary: With all the hype surrounding the bigger named titles on the Vita , it’s easy to forget that the system will also offer owners a lower cost alternative in the guise of system specific budget titles. With many gamers concerned that there has been too much focus on console titles ported to the system without taking into consideration that the real value of a handheld is the ability to pick up and play in short, sharp bursts, it’s great to see that there are already...
Conclusion: A great refinement to the first game and great at using the Vita features without being an impediment or feeling forced, Mutant Blobs Attack is the best value on the Vita right now, and a must-buy for most owners.
Excerpt: When it arrived for the Vita in 2012, Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack offered a challenging and sometimes puzzling romp through around 30 levels of sci-fi mayhem. A move to consoles two years later hasn't changed much about the source material. The blob still responds beautifully to your commands, and the design still feels fresh, but there are some disappointing new issues too.
Pros: Lighthearted '50s graphical style keeps things fresh, Tight platforming sequences, Growing larger is always satisfying
