  • Summary: Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer about an ornery mutant blob that, after being held captive in a lab that can only be described as something out of a retro sci-fi movie from the early '50's, escapes into the world and sets out on a path to destroy and consume everything! A follow-up to last year's PlayStation®Network title Tales from Space: About a Blob, Mutant Blobs Attack will contain a wide range of exciting new features and gameplay modes designed exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.

    Mutant Blobs Attack! isn't a game with many surprises up its sleeve, but within its designed simplicity it contains unbridled joy. It's a game that focuses on being fun first, and succeeds at that ambition.

    Its refreshing take on platform-based gaming, humour, variety, challenge and polish are instantly - and enduringly - impressive. Not only is this one of the best games on the Vita, it's one of the best games of the year - period.

    Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is one of the rare experiences where everything just clicks. The style, the feeling, the controls and the gameplay. If you are looking for a solid (or cheap) platformer for your priced PS Vita look no further. This one has everything going for it.

    Quite possibly the best value on the Vita right now. This is a neat, fun platforming adventure at a great price.

    It reminds the puzzle game of the nineties with its immediate gameplay and its colorful graphic. It's a funny game and you'll appreciate it if you decide to take every single object trying to achieve the best score.
  6. Touchscreen is implemented nicely. [Apr 2012, p.113]

    This game was a real surprise. It started off as a harmless platformer, but it just kept getting better and better. I feel bad because it's the most fun of any of the vita games I got at launch and it was the cheapest! The only launch game that deserves a 10 IMHO. Expand

    I wasn't at all surprised to see that (at least at the time I wrote this) there were only positive reviews for this game. I heard this was a fun game back at launch but hadn't really gotten on board the Indy train yet, but I'm glad I finally gave it a try. It is simply a fun, charming, challenging while not frustrating game. You would think a game about a rolling blob would get stale fast, but I'll give it to drinkbox, they are constantly throwing in new little twists to the gameplay. I gave it to my wife to try who is far from an avid gamer and she really enjoyed it. It does a great job of using the Vita's different features without making it feel like a chore. If you like Mario or little big planet do yourself a huge favour and drop a few bucks on this game. Expand

    Agreed with other reviewer, didn't expect too much for $8, then was awesome. Maybe you could say it was too short, but, then again, I payed so much less for this than other games that ended up costing me 50 bucks.... and i had already spent all my money on memory cards. :) Expand

    This is the best deal available for the VIta if you missed out on getting Motorstorm RC for free. It is a great little platformer that is fun for all ages. It does have some challenging levels towards the end and some hard to get trophies if you are a trophy whore. Worth every penny - very highly recommended. Expand

    One of the cheapest games for the Vita is also one of the best. If you own a Vita there's no excuse for not buying this wonderful platformer. And the online ranking system, will make you keep coming back to beat your own personal scores. This game is totally worth every penny Expand

    The most fun i've had on the Vita so far! This game saved me from utter boredom on an 8 hour flight! Uses the vita's functionality perfectly in a cute, fun, interesting game with varied levels which flow seamlessly from one to the next. Not alot of replay value, but the game has a decent length. Great value for money considering how cheap it is compared to most titles, and I had more fun with this game that others that I paid more than four times for! Must have for Vita owners! Expand

    I gave Mutant Blobs a 7. It's a visually lovely bite size platformer with a few shortcomings but ultimately it is what it says on the box. There's some replay value in finding all of your little mutant blob friends, and of course collecting as many points as you want, there's also leaderboards which I personally don't care for.
    I'll no doubt jump back in every now and then for a bit of mindless fun, but the pretty aesthetics aside, Mutant Blobs is a shallow gaming experience reflected by it's budget price. It is however, a nice showcase of the Vita's software variety.
