    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.

    A delightful comic revenge fantasy of epic proportions.

    Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!! is a perfect example and a showcase of what you can expect from well-designed, properly-priced downloadable games. Bigger developers may need to take note as well if they want us to pay full retail prices for their titles. Great job DrinkBox Studios!

    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.

    A one-eyed blob is the unlikely star of the Vita's launch lineup.

    Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack may look like an unassuming LocoRoco rip-off, but in actuality it's Katamari Damacy with a demented undercurrent. This quirky platformer basks in the glory of 1950s science fiction films; all while offering a solid action/puzzler that feels right at home on the PS Vita!

    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.
  8. Yet for a mere $8, we highly recommend this all-you-can-eat buffet of awesome. [May 2012, p.81]
  9. Not Escape Plan, but Tales From Space is the indie hit on the PlayStation Vita we've all been waiting for. A strange concoction of Katamari and Loco Roco that could have used a little bit more time and money for its visuals, but still shines because of its magnificent and pure gameplay. [April 2012, p.101]

    Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is the best downloadable launch game for the PS Vita.

    A great refinement to the first game and great at using the Vita features without being an impediment or feeling forced, Mutant Blobs Attack is the best value on the Vita right now, and a must-buy for most owners.

    One of those games that will shine bright when people discuss the Vita's launch lineup. It is the Geometry Wars for Sony's portable and a game that anyone who enjoys the medium needs to check out. The price is right, the content is plentiful and the gameplay is top notch.

    When all is said and done, this is an appropriately priced, raccous romp of a platformer. There's hidden goodies throughout each level and more than enough replayability. I guarantee you'll miss most of the jokes the first time through.

    Mutant Blobs Attack is one of those games that absolutely hooks you from the moment you begin playing it and doesn't let go until the credits roll.

    Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack stole my heart. It's visually delicious, the cutscenes ooze with humor, and the actual gameplay feels perfectly balanced.

    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. Full Review »

    Good game, good price, good graphics... I'm enjoying the slow paced nature of the game, only enviromental enemies, plenty of time to explore, maybe it will change soon enough but I think this people nailed it with the art style and gameplay. Full Review »

    Mutant blobs attack s the best tales from space game and one of the best game on the vita. The controls fell fluid just roll into things to pick them up. With a great sound track, level design and top notch graphics. The story is simple and easy to follow with some very funny moments. Its just a ton of fun to play i only have one complaint and that's it is to short but for £3.79 its a must buy. Full Review »
