    This was an underrated gem on the Wii’s library, and its remastered version on the Switch is giving people a second chance to discover it. If you’re wise (and, obviously, you’re into inventive platformers), don’t miss out on it this time.

    De Blob is a port that has been meticulously taken care of. It allows for better visuals in a platformer that, even nowadays, remains as a reference of the genre.

    de Blob is a peculiar game if we compare it with others. The concept it tries to convey is different and at the same time daring. However, it should be noted that this is clearly a port of the original Wii game, and therefore, doesn’t present major changes, but it’s a pleasure to see it in high definition.

    de Blob is a prime example of a game that has stood the test of time because of both its simplicity and originality. Its gameplay is timeless, its humour tickles the young and the old, and its soundtrack is both dynamic and infectious. This Switch port still doesn’t address the game’s camera or control issues, but they’re worth working through to enjoy an experience that rarely fails to put a smile on your face.

    All in all, It’s amazing to see such a creative and relaxing game make the jump from Wii to Switch. I would possibly make a few changes to cater to those who played the earlier version of the game, but I’m still glad to see it here painting the eShop red.

    While de Blob was an ambitious title on the Wii and a unique one at the time, it definitely shows its age even with a great porting studio.

    Painting the town red is an easy feat to achieve in de Blob, but that can't prevent the objectives from being incredibly tedious, basic, and simply not on par with the modern platformers today.

While it still has some of the control flaws from the original, it's still a fantastically fun, colourful, and unique game, with an utterly beautiful soundtrack. I'm already looking forward to the re-release of the sequel on the Switch later this year. My only other gripe is how difficult it was to find a physical copy- there were NONE in all of North Texas on release day, and I had to have someone pick a copy up in Los Angeles for me. Expand

    A really fun and cute game that everyone should try at least once! Reminds me of Splatoon!
