de Blob - 2017 Edition
Top Critic Average
Developers: THQ Nordic, Blue Tongue Entertainment
Genres: Action, Platformer
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.
