  • Excerpt: I remember a boy and his blob on the Nintendo Entertainment System very fondly. An action adventure video game with puzzle elements. When I heard Majesco Entertainment was publishing a remake, I got very excited. This Wii game is everything I hoped for, and more. Players are a little boy who has a white blob that follows them around. Giving the blob jelly beans will allow it to morph into different things.

  • Conclusion: Don’t pass this one by. Sitting at less than half the standard price of a 360 or PS3 game, A Boy and His Blob offers more entertainment and replay value than most Wii titles can attest to.

A Boy and His Blob Review

Cheat Code Central
16 February 2010
  • Conclusion: On top of the campaign, there are an additional 40 challenge stages for even more gameplay. A Boy and His Blob is packed with a lot of content, and there's one thing it has more of than nearly any other game around: heart. It's a sweet, well-meaning game that manages to elicit an emotional response more effectively than most so-called art games.

Review: A Boy and His Blob (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
11 February 2010
  • Summary: A Boy and His Blob isn’t just one of the best games for the Nintendo Wii this year, it’s one of the best games of 2009 regardless of system. David Crane can be proud of Wayforward’s resurrection and remake of this classic gaming franchise. The story is charming, the art direction is wonderful and the gameplay is timeless. Can this game win GOTY like the original did back in 1989? Unlikely, but we’ll have to wait and see.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

Hooked Gamers
8 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is a solid puzzle game with an incredibly original art design and soundtrack that will charm the pants off of you. The only real downside, other than the occasional soul-crushing difficulty, is that it can be conquered in a couple of hours. A handful of unlockable timed challenges called "bonus shorts" do provide some replay value and there are leaderboards for those who like a little competition.

a boy and his blob Review

  • Excerpt: I read Mean Machines. I played Super Mario Bros. 3. I even finished Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But I'd never even heard of A Boy and His Blob. There. Now you know. What a NES noob. So, rather than pretend, I'll admit to a spot of research. The internet (which, as you all know, can't be trusted), tells me A Boy and His Blob was a 1991 side-scrolling platformer created by Activision co-founder David Crane. People seemed to like it.

The sweetest, gentlest action heroes around.

Common Sense Media
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that aside from the inclusion of a few scary looking evil blob monsters, A Boy and His Blob provides a sweetly entertaining adventure that works the brain and even touches the heart. The title characters are so endearing (and adorably rendered in 2-D artwork), it's hard not to like this game. The amount of fighting in the game is minimal, and mostly occurs during the four boss battles.

  • Excerpt: y blob is from outer space, and he can change into all sorts of things. My favorites are the parachute and the jack. Mrs. Flanders told me to write about the adventures I had with my blob over the summer. She is a witch.

  • Excerpt: It’s heartening to see a developer aim for mastery of 2D gaming when we’re surrounded by amazing 3D graphics every day.
