    The game art is so cute, and the levels so creative, it's a really great game. I haven't played the original but I can assure you that this does worth playing!

    A great re-imagination of a classic title. It provides a good amount of challenge and great re-playability. It's not very fast paced and there are some instances where the game can become frustrating or instances where the A.I. blob can be a minor problem, but overall a fun game

  1. It's a magical adventure full of mesmerizing sights and compelling gameplay, held together by whimsical characters and a simple but surprisingly powerful story. [Nov 2009, p.85]

    A Boy and His Blob is a fun and oftentimes beautiful 2D puzzle platformer that complements other Wii efforts like Muramasa and New Super Mario Bros. very nicely.
  3. A Boy and His Blob is a slow burn that requires patience, so those looking for a bit more action should stay mindful of this. However, if you're hankering for a great 2D platformer with clever, inventive puzzles, you'll find plenty to love here.
