#38: A Boy And His Blob: Trouble On Blobolonia

Released In: 1989
Developer: Absolute Entertainment
Publisher: Absolute Entertainment

      A friendly little blob named Blobert comes to Earth, seeking someone with rudimentary puzzle-solving who can help him overthrow the evil emperor who has seized control of his home planet, Blobolonia. You are that person; you are the Boy. To help Blobert succeed, you'll have to feed him magical jellybeans that cause him to morph into a variety of useful objects. Then you'll need to secure secret treasure hidden beneath the subway system, break into your local vitamin store, and then ride a totally unsafe rocket to Blobolonia where you'll fight the emperor's evil army of delicious junk food.

Syd Lexia: I can't think of any new stuff to say about this game, so instead I'll just shamelessly plug my old piece on it.

greeneyedzeke: A Boy and His Blob is a cult game so beloved by its followers that weíre all hanging onto the cruel lies being fed to us about a DS follow-up. Face it, we will never see this game. That being said, the original is still an awesome experience. The title says it all. Youíre a boy and you have a pet blob. You feed him various jelly beans to turn him into objects (a ladder, an umbrella, etc.) and you use your gelatinous friendís shapeshifting abilities to solve puzzles. I never owned an instruction manual for this game, so there was a lot of trial and error involved in figuring out what beans did what. There, thatís a nostalgic anecdote for you.

Dr. Jeebus: This is the first game that I can remember renting. Based off the hideous box art, I have no idea why Syd or I would have picked it. It turned out to be a good decision though, because we had a lot of fun... that is, once we figured out how to get into the fucking caverns.
