A Boy and His Blob is a puzzle platform side-scrolling game about a boy and a “blob” who came to earth from a different planet. It is an HD remake of a classic 1989 NES game titled A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia.
An evil emperor is threatening the planet Blobolonia. The “Blob” then decided to escape and go to earth to look for help. After it crash-lands on earth it finds the “Boy” and they team up. Together they decide to bring down the evil emperor from power by completing a quest on Earth and then by traveling to the planet Blobolonia. As the boy and his blob set out on their adventuresome and difficult journey. The Emperor and his minions will do anything it takes to try and stop them.
The boy and his blob cooperate throughout the game and are able to help each other along the way. For example, the blob can transform into a parachute the boy can use to avoid injury from falls. Controlling the boy, the player can feed the blob with various jellybeans. These can be unlocked as the game progresses. In this PC version of the game, the player can select jellybeans from a wheel that shows what each one does. By eating the jellybeans the blob is then able to transform into various objects, which can be used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
Some of the objects the blob is able to transform into are ladders (for climbing), anvils (to drop down on enemies), holes (the boy can drop through platforms), and cannons for shooting across to difficult to reach areas.
The game consists of four worlds and each world contains ten levels and a boss battle. If the player can find three hidden chests in each main level then additional challenge levels are unlocked. This will reward players with various developer bonuses such as concept art and storyboards.
