A Boy and His Blob is available on the eShop now for $14.99 USD.
The far-off kingdom of Blobolonia is under siege by an evil tyrant, and a brave “blob” has escaped to search for help. After crash landing on planet earth, he finds help in the form of an adventurous young boy who’s ready to lend a hand and save Blobolonia. In the game, players will control both the boy and his blob, as they explore beautiful hand-drawn 2D worlds and face an array of puzzling challenges. Depending on the obstacle, players must feed a variety of jelly beans to blob, turning them into useful shapes or objects to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
Are you up to the challenge of saving Blobolonia?
