Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack 

 

Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack has earned itself a place in gaming history. Why? Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack is the first game Family Friendly Gaming is reviewing on the PS Vita. Another notch in the belt for Drinkbox Studios. This downloadable game is part Touch my Katamari and part LocoRoco. I know, those two don't seem to go together.

Thankfully Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack pulls off this combination flawlessly. You control a blob. This blob grows by consuming materials. As your blob gets bigger it can consume bigger materials. He (not really sure of the gender but masculine is my choice) can also be squished through little tunnels and come out the other side. His spikes come back out on the other side.

The blobs in Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack collect all kinds of things. That can include people. It felt a little strange consuming a graduation party at the end of one level. The graphics are bright and colorful. Some of the background tones are darker. The animation is very cartoony, especially in the backgrounds. Which have some interesting animations during certain levels.

I enjoyed the music in Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack. Some of it was a little campy or corny, which fit the theme of this game. Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack is one of those 1960s horror films where people were freaking out about all kinds of large mutant monsters. We generally look back on those with laughter. Back then Jello was a major threat, so we need to be sensitive to that era.

Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack is being sold for $7.99. For the amount of content, and levels that is a very reasonable price. You won't beat everything in Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack in a few hours. Trust me on this. Then there are bonus levels that use different aspects of the PS Vita. Those kept me on my toes.

The game play in Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack feels very natural. Initially I compared Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack to LocoRoco and Touch My Katamari. But there is also a platformer in this hand held title. Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack let me wall jump, move platforms to assist in progressing. Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack was constantly throwing something new and different my way.

Ultimately Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack is a very fun experience. This is one of the better hand held titles I have played all year long. I learned to stay away from lasers, which became annoying in more than one area. Getting to save my progress at continue points was a nice touch when I wound up dying. That way I could start from that point instead of the beginning of the lengthy levels.

There are enough puzzle elements in Tales from Space Mutant Blobs Attack to interest the intelligent gamers. I do not see many parents purchasing a PS Vita for their kids. That means I do not see the need to ask parents to be mindful of the rating. Players are taking on the role of a 'B' movie bad creature, and destroying quite a bit. They are doing so because they have been poked and prodded by scientists. Those horrible scientists - first they come up with that Global Warming fairy tale and now this.
