Chillingo has made an important move with Blobster Christmas. They
did not shy away from using Christmas. They did not offend the super
majority to avoid making a microcosm of the population uncomfortable.
They said this is a Christmas based game, and we will use Christmas. We
appreciate that deeply here at Family Friendly Gaming.
Ya'll may remember my review of the first Blobster game. I was not overly impressed with the title. It had its moments, and got a decent score. It was not something that screamed out at me though. Chillingo heard me loud and clear. They made numerous improvements in Blobster Christmas. First off being the festive theme.
Visually Blobster Christmas has a great look. There are many different Christmas images in this hand held title. Things like ginger bread men, snowflakes, red hats, presents and more. Blobster is trying to get the presents back in Blobster Christmas. Yeah that bad guy acted like the Grinch. He was trying to stop everyone from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
The music in Blobster Christmas makes me think of Christmas. This is the best time of the year to play a game like Blobster Christmas. It was neat for me to go from listening to Go Fish's Christmas album to a game like Blobster Christmas. The music and special effect sounds warm my heart. And yes I know that may sound a little corny.
There are twenty levels in Blobster Christmas. This seems short for the ninety-nine cent price. However many of these levels are lengthy. My one complaint is Blobster Christmas makes me start from the beginning after any mistake. This is especially annoying when doing well for so long and then make one mis-calculation.
The mistakes I made in Blobster Christmas were related to no guide being there. Touching to the right makes Blobster move to the right, and touching to the left makes him go left. Grabbing him and pulling a direction will launch him in that direction. Blobster Christmas calls this jumping. When you do this it is all guess work as to where you will go. I died over and over again in some levels trying to discern the right angle and pressure.
