Puzzle games are very popular for they pose a different kind of challenge compared to the shooting and killing types of online games. A Boy and His Blob is one of those time tested puzzle games with beautifully designed backgrounds which were hand drawn by gifted artists. It is even more enjoyable for there are so many levels to overcome which increases the game fun.

The game is all about aliens invading Earth. Not a totally original concept here but for one thing: they love jelly beans and they want to develop a relationship with humans. Nope, no killing here, that is the most obvious thing.

The alien blob and his human friend are the main characters of this fun game. Now, don’t get all crumply-faced when you first see the visual. The visuals are, for lack of a better description, cute. Ok, so maybe people will say they are worse than cute, the graphics are Really Cute! But, this is just an illusion for deep in the heart of all the cutesiness, there is a challenge that could not be denied. The challenge is not for killing or blood and gore either; the challenge is for the mind. So those of you who are not thinkers, think again.

The obstacles which have to be overcome need a lot of planning. The player has to think and think again to go around the tasks set in front of them. The lower levels are easier, but then they gradually get to challenging challenges that can be hard to finish in one try.

The pacing of the game is smooth which makes the increasing difficulties more interesting, and yes, more challenging. An obstacle can be so hard to go around in that it can block the player’s progress for the next level.

What you need to do is to help save the blobs from captivity. It all starts out when an evil and mighty king captures and imprisons the blobtizens of Blobolonia. However, one of those blobs was able to escape and then befriend a human boy. With the tools in the form of jelly beans, they travel many lands. The alien blob can never get tired of eating the jelly beans and he gets transformed into something that will help the boy clear the obstacles if he eats one.

The boy, or you the player, have an infinite supply of the lovely jellies but can only use some types in every level. There are some levels where the alien blob can transform into a ladder to take you above ground, while in other level he is not a ladder but a trampoline to get to higher ground. The boy is human so his movements are limited to what the alien blob can help him out with, the bag of jelly beans is therefore your key to survival.

As there are 40 stages, this makes it a challenging and occupying game. Play it straight and without fault you can go on for about 10 hours. Play it as a human who can make mistakes and soon you will find yourself sitting in front of the game after a day or so. Fun, yes! Challenging, definitely. This is a game that should not be missed by those who like to think rather than kill.
