    There's quite a bit of platforming. All together, the levels could take over fifteen hours, which is about normal for a game of its type. More importantly, the experience is top notch all the way.

    Improving on the original in many ways, De Blob 2 is a funny and colourful platform experience.

    My hope after playing through de Blob 2 is that it's not overlooked like its predecessor. Although not a perfect platformer, de Blob 2 is a game that reminded me of experiences I had when I was first just getting into video games over twenty years ago. For anyone who may have missed the original or even for those that didn't this is a game that is at the very least worth a rental.

    The upbeat atmosphere, colorful levels and absolutely hilarious cut scenes make this game well worth playing even if the inflexible save system requires some planning to work around. Even with this limitation, seeing the cities transform from bleak cityscapes to colorful bastions of good cheer and frivolity is like nothing else in gaming today and should be appreciated as such.

    The concept of bringing joy into a lifeless world not only shows in the gameworld, but in the real world as well, as you smile along with De Blob 2 and its colourizing antics.

    De Blob 2 has an infectious feel-good vibe, but some frustrations cramp this platformer's funky style.

    Gameplay concepts this imaginative deserve more thorough exploration than the handful of basic, regurgitated puzzles that populate de Blob 2. Instead, we're stuck with a mediocre platformer that's too easy for adults and too repetitive for most anyone, kids in particular.

    I was looking for something different recently and was greeted by a small creature called Blob.

    I have to confess that I did not pick this up but my girlfriend, who is relatively new to gaming, saw a video clip for it and was interested by it. It was only £30 brand new, so she bought it and I have to admit that I was thoroughly jealous watching her play.

    Basic concept is around restoring colour to a grey-scale world, so blob rolls around splashing paint over all of the surfaces of the world. Each individual colour (of which there are 7) is accompanied by a unique tune, which I found rather satisfying. It is a fairly standard platforming game. Its best to say that this is not a game marketed towards the 'hardcore' gamer, as my experience of it is that it is fairly straight forward and not taxing in any way (in fact I asked my girlfriend if it is possible to die....she said she hadn't yet.)

    This is a game of collection. I am perhaps a little bit OCD, but there are hundreds of different things to collect and it does take a little while to get to all of it. The only criticism I would have of this is that each level begins with a time limit that you have to complete all of the main missions in. This unfortunately hampers your ability to explore off teh beaten path, and as this time limit is never given an explanation, I can not easily understand what it is for!

    Above all, this game reminds me of what gaming used to be, full of impossible creatures and bright, vibrant colours all exploded over your screen. Forget realism, this game is just about having fun. And if you have kids, this is perfect to keep them occupied without fear of guns or explosions, unless you count ink turrets!

    A mix of good changes and bad
    de Blob 2 continues the story of Blob, who sets out to bring color and life back to the cityscape
    This games improves on the pacing of the first game
    but still fails to do anything interesting with its mechanic.
    This is a 10 hour long puzzle platformer that can be played single player or coop all about collecting colors and bringing life to the world,
    Though De blob 2 is much less tedious than the first..
    No longer is it about reaching point goals, trying to paint every last section of a level and going to different characters for tasks to move on..
    Its much more linear feeling.. its very straight forward, go to the mission spot, complete the mission and go forward..
    Much less thinking this time as well which kills this game for me..
    I didn’t like the slow pace of the original ,but it at least made me strategize and plan..
    Theres none of that here…
    its more platforming focused, youll mostly be climbing towers and getting to the top dealing with enemies and making sure you have enough of a certain color to go inside and deal with another change im not really a fan of.. a 2d puzzle platformer section of dealing with obstacles trying to again take your paint from you while youre trying to make it to a button with a certain color…
    De Blob 2 just doesn’t do enough different throughout your journey..
    It becomes a boring chore after only a couple of hours much like the first game..
    its just the same tedious missions over and over…
    The level design which I appreciate for the games pacing ultimately doesn’t improve this game in any other aspect..
    Its dul boring, and a repeat of the same objective climb this building, go inside and deal with these obstacles for 45 minites to an hr and a half to move onto the next section of the city and do it all over again kills the design… its designed to pull you along through the levels.. but theres so much rinse repeat of the same thing crammed into each level that it starts to feel slower than the first game
    it starts out promising with its turoial wanting you to bring color to the trees to move on through a cave section for example..
    And I really with this game was just 6 hours of that..
    Throw my into an area to color certain items and move on, take me through a colorful and charming adventure.. but no
    Back are the ink enemies trying to ruin your day, much less fun to deal with because this game does feel like such a chore theyre really just a nussance extending your play tiem and threatening you with losing all of your lives and restarting a challenge…
    I really like the idea of de Blob as a series..
    A 3d platofmrer where you collect colors and bring life to the world..
    give us this in a way that doesn’t feel like a chore.. give us a Mario galaxy styled game with these mechanics for de blob 3
    The potential is there, this game does things like gravity, different forms, ice sections.
    Deliver your ideas in a creative way that doesn’t feel like a tedious grind.
    Because that’s all this game really is
    Make me feel like im bringing life to the world like in folower instead of like im 7 years old being made to clean my room
    I give de blob 2
    a 5/10
