Excerpt: I love sequels. I really do. I enjoy getting back into a universe, and seeing all the new stuff. I love getting more levels of something I enjoyed playing. THQ has assisted me by publishing de blob 2. They expanded this game in a plethora of ways. My favorite is de blob 2 is on the Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 as well as the Wii and Nintendo DS. If you want a comparison, well the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 versions are better than the Wii version.
Excerpt: Thinking about it, I probably should have told somebody I was colour-blind before starting the vibrant de Blob 2. I can see individual colours just fine, but have trouble differentiating between certain shades; greens and yellows, my optician informs me. Fortunately, this didn't impact my ability to play Blue Tongue Entertainment's sequel in the slightest, but I found the irony of a colour-blind player being asked to review such a game too delicious not to mention.
Colorful characters and great gameplay make for a fun ride.

Summary: Parents need to know that De Blob 2 is an action/adventure game with some puzzle elements, which revolves around a freedom-fighting blob's attempts to rid his land of a ruthless dictator who has stolen all color from the world. The violence is cartoony at worst, as most of the villains are robots and they lose ink, as opposed to blood.
Excerpt: Blue Tongue Entertainment and THQ's de Blob surprised a lot of people when it was released in 2008. The seemingly standard platform was filled to the brim with ingenuity, creativity and some of the coolest visuals the Wii has ever seen. Flash forward three years, and things have changed for amorphous protagonist, he's now gone multi-console, he's got a sleek new logo, a sponsorship from SyFy Kids and even a new cartoon coming soon and some cool action figures.
Summary: The blob known as Blob made his debut in de Blob when it landed on the Wii in 2008, introducing the world to a funky new hero whose ability to absorb color and spread it around was put to great use in that charming platformer. Now, Blob is back, but while fostering political revolution through paint is as intrinsically enjoyable as ever, a nasty tendency to punish you severely for failure and a few other issues prevent this outing from being as enjoyable as the first.
Pros: Restoring color to the world is rewarding, Great visuals and music create a joyous atmosphere, Smart, entertaining cutscenes, Combat is often good simple fun
Cons: Failure can result in having to replay long sections or entire levels, Targeting system can be frustrating when facing diverse groups of enemies, Some repetitive level design
