Return colour to a monochromatic city in de Blob, the simple yet hugely addictive blob-hopping game on the Wii, now available from Play for only £9.99!
Dunked into a price-comparison, Play’s offer for de Blob outshone its competitors, with a two-pound fifty saving! de Blob was a runaway success on the Wii, averaging an 82/100 on MetaCritic, with Variety awarding it a perfect score and stating “A wonderfully simple, infectiously enthusiastic joyride”.
The core objective in de Blob is simple; as Blob, the gelatinous title-star, you must collect colours from evil, hue-hating corporation INKT, and repaint the city’s streets, lamp-posts and building. As Blob returns colour, he also injects music, with each colour corresponding to a specific musical theme or note.
Part of de Blob’s appeal is the overall aesthetic. The wonderful disparity between the grey and white city with the exuberantly colourful Blob, trailing streaks of colour, form to create a charming, idiosyncratic universe that belies the Wii’s relative lack of graphical horsepower.
Puzzles and challenges also feature in de Blob. The Colour Underground, a radical activist group endeavouring to return the city to its multicoloured roots, task Blob with painting certain landmarks a certain colour or combination of colours. Each of the ten levels has their own unique landmark to decorate. But Blob must be wary of pools of ink which damage Blob, and the Inkies, INKT warriors deployed to stem the flow of colour.
