|Title: A Boy and His Blob: Trouble On Blobolonia
Rom Player: Jnes
Reviewer: Cap'n Crunch
Synopsis: Okay, for whatever reason, you are a boy and you have a blob that follows you. From the title, as you may have noticed, there is trouble in the land of Blobolonia. As you guessed it, you control the boy and his blob to defeat this type of trouble.
You start off in your house, which isn't near any other houses at all. You have to guide the boy and his blob through the city, and into the underground to collect all of the treasures. There are all types of obstacles to go through, and the only way to get pass them is to feed the blob one thing: JELLYBEANS!
That's right, for no reason jellybeans are the source to get passed these obstacles. Once you feed the blob one of those tasty morsels, he turns into some sort of object that relates to that flavor.
Some people say this game is hard, some say it is easy, but I think it is a little bit of both. Some parts are very hard, while others are a piece of cake. For a difficulty level, I give this game an 8/10.
For the game play, this game is very hard, as I stated before. You either like it, and play it until you beat it, or you suck at it, and never want to pick up a Nintendo paddle again. I'm not saying it is the best game for the NES, but I think it is worth a try. The replay value is very high, that is why I am giving the game play a 9/10.
As for graphics, the characters look like they are ripped out of something on Atari. I'm not saying that the background is bad, just the characters. They could have put a little more effort into the sprites. That is why I am giving the graphics a 6/10.
The music is terrible and choppy. That is all I have to say about it. 3/10
The originality is very good. Iíve never seen a game like this on any type of console before. If I did, it probably sucked. This game is very original, and I am giving this a 9/10.
For an overall rating I am giving this an 8/10. This is a very established game, and I think if you haven't played it, you definitely should.
Best Cheats: None that I know of, AT ALL.
Game Play: 9
Overall Rating: 8
