Blend Games writes: "Painting the town never took such a literal meaning until De Blob reared its head on the gaming scene. Based on a freeware student project, De Blob is a unique combination of unique game-types all fused into a hyperactive adventure game for the Nintendo Wii and DS.
What started as a university student-project is now a possible bargain-bin candidate. No, I'm just kidding (well, sort of). THQ is well-known for publishing fairly good games, and even if this is for the Wii, there's a chance that this could be moderately good. I still have grave reservations about this game, though. Nevertheless, players will be taking on the role of a pudgy, rolly blob, who will execute their adventures as a half-ball, half-paint brush and full-on style innovator."
