    This game is very funny, good playable, fluent, funny and mad with mad soundtrack. I recommend it everybody, who wants to have a short fun. It is not big, complex and difficult, it is just good indie game, which is really very funny. Try it!

    Mutant Blobs Attack is an all around fun game that is a cross between Katamari Damacy and Super Meat Boy. The production values are solid throughout and the game tributes many other famous games.

    The story of "Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack" is pretty simple: You play as a blob breaking out of a blob torture research center and getting his revenge. On his way to do so the blob automatically absorbs everything that is smaller than him and so he is getting larger and larger and is able to absorb even more.

    Over the course of the game you gain new abilities like smashing,
    telekinesis, magnetism and sometimes you can even fly around. Combined with the six different themed world stages and the never stopping growth of your blob the game never gets to repetitive besides it simple basic gameplay idea. The puzzles in the game are fairly easy what I did not really mind. The platformer part on the other hand is a bit tougher mainly for one reason. Besides the blob being a blob, and therefore precise movement can be a bit tricky, the controls are unusual. I have read some complains about them, because the game contains parts where you have to use the mouse. People playing the game solely on keyboard or gamepad have to shift over what can be annoying. Personally I played the game one hand on the keyboard and the other one on the mouse. This combinations works pretty well. And even if you die you will start by one of the nearby checkpoints. Normally you should pass each passage with less than five times dying except you are trying to get the gold medals or you are collecting your blob friends.
    Those unusual controls are a left over from the porting because the game was made initially for the PS Vita. Another leftover are the mini-levels which are a lot easier in the PC version but still fun. The graphic is cartoon-like and colourful and fits the theme of the game. The music is nothing special. It does not really stand out but it does not annoy you as well. The game took me eight hours for completion of all achievements and replaying some of the levels for getting better times in the leaderboards. And for that the price tag is really fair.

    All in all "Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack" is a really really fun and colourful game if you can forgive some sometimes clunky controls and you do not mind the repetitiveness of the basic gameplay idea. Obliteration of mankind can be so enjoyable.

    Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a cheap funny game about a hungry blob monster whose goal in life is to eat everything he stumbles on. Yay! Also, good physics and compelling gameplay.

    A Great game overall. Great gameplay, great plot, great style, great controls. I would give it a 9 if it was longer but still a great way to enjoyably kill some time.

    Well Mutant Blobs Attack may be a short title, but you have to give it credit for being a really fun game… Everybody should play at some point; it is so “PS1 days” awesome! The game looks good, has a varied difficulty throughout the levels and is a really interesting little title! It's aim is similar to that of “The Maw” your some blob thing from outer space and the goal is to eat things to grow in size and while “The Maw” used that as a side plot, this game focuses entirely on that basis… As it is a short game, some replay ability probably is expected, however after beating it I have no desire to do that… Maybe that’s just me!

    Surprisingly fun Katamari style platformer. You play as a blob that needs to eat stuff strewn throughout levels in order to progress. You can also collect little blobs for bonus points (there's a score system). Unfortunately there's no free play mode so you don't ever get a real open area where you can grow to a massive size. Nevertheless it is a good game for anyone interested in a new spin on Katamari. Expand

    Do you know those retro sci-fi movies with big green blobs attacking the earth? Well, that's you! and you can finally unleash your revenge on humanity and eat everything, consume all the things, get bigger, all the people, get even bigger, all the buildings, eat more, even bigger, eat cities, eat the entire earth, consume the entire galaxy, AAARARGH! Really cool little indie platformer from the creators of Guacamelee! with their distinctive art design, loads of humor and game scene references all in simple, but fun and intuitive gameplay. I cannot rate this extensively higher, because it's still just a short little game, but for what it is, it's really good. 7/10 Expand

    Short in duration, witty in its black humor, with intelligent –not pretentiously- riddles and not too expensive: Mutant Blobs is an exquisite challenge for your free time. [October 2012]

    With it's great sense of style and creative puzzles -- and easily digested price of $7.99 on Steam -- it's an easy title to recommend.

    Mutant Blobs Attack has the right amount of charm and variety of gameplay elements especially considering its price.
