Years later De Blob feels like a worthwhile experiment. It hits the ground running with its likable tone and doesn't really let up with its no-strings-attached sandbox approach. Ironically after seeing the landscape so packed with open world busywork since its retirement, it's a welcome respite.

All in all, de Blob is a welcome remaster and will hopefully lead to those who avoided the Wii version enjoying a fun and vibrant platformer. The sequel was released as a multiplatform title, so it's possible that some may be looking backwards to the series' origins. The game itself still holds up in comparison to its sequel, though it doesn't have the enjoyable 2D sections. If you're after a splash of colour to illuminate the dark winter nights, de Blob is a good place to go.

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.

The years don't go in vain. de Blob was a game certainly revolutionary in 2008 for its mixture of physics and colour. Nowadays, it does not surprise and it ends up being repetitive.
