de Blob 2 - 2018 Edition
Despite having a very similar feel to the first game, De Blob 2 manages to stand out on its own. The overall storyline does hold it back slightly. However the additions to gameplay, new abilities and the upgrades to De Blob and Pinky add substance. The addition of a Co-op mode also makes playing with a friend enjoyable.
In the end, de Blob 2 is mostly a game about creative expression and pleasant visual experiences.
Overall, if you're a fan of the De Blob series or if you're just looking for a nice and peaceful game to add to your Switch library, I'd recommend giving this one a shot and letting your inner graffiti artist run wild.
This remastered edition of De Blob 2 is a disappointing attempt to make the most of a franchise by reproposing the same game launched in 2011, without fixing the bugs and gameplay issues of the original product. If you like to color everything shows up in front of you, maybe it's time for you to give Splatoon 2 a try.

While the game is a bit linear with its story objectives, there is room to explore in each level, with some great-looking locations that will surprise you. I have had an absolute blast playing the game for long and relaxing gaming sessions. de Blob 2 is a very fun, colorful and addictive painting puzzler with a nice Platinum trophy that has only one missable trophy. As long as you don't purchase any upgrade for your character during your run, you can get all trophies in one go. The first game was a fun release, and the sequel takes everything that was great about it and improves on the formula. Hopefully we get a de Blob 3 at some point!
Even though I prefer the arcade feel of the first game, de Blob 2 is certainly a must-have 3D platformer.
Available now on modern consoles, De Blob 2 has been remastered into a simple port, with barely any changes including its original faults. But I'll highly recommend this game to those that never tried it, especially for the younger generations as it's an entertaining title.
Even though De Blob 2 isn't without fault, it's a joyful and wholesome experience that amuses more than it frustrates. Adults might find it too simplistic, but it's perfect for children.
For some reason, they remastered de Blob 2...
Being honest I’d say you really only should need one de Blob game in your life, though if you truly love the original and wanted more it won’t disappoint as long as you set your expectations towards more of the same. If you’re interested in the title but haven’t played the original it’s really a bit of a toss up which would be better. Honestly I prefer the pacing and objectives of the first to the sequel so in that case I’d point towards the remastered original that’s no less attractive and I think paced better for the Switch. Still, de Blob 2 is no slouch and does a great job of providing a less complicated 3D platformer that’s fun for all ages on the system.
