IGN: A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia Review

What is a good game is A Boy and His Blob for the Wii. That Wayforward-developed remake just launched last month here on Nintendo's current console, and it actually achieved what this first NES attempt was trying to do -- it built an engaging, truly playable experience around the concept of the jellybean-eating, shapeshifting blob. This NES original has likely only launched on the Virtual Console in response to the release of that remake, which makes it timely for those who are curious and want to go back and compare the new vision with the old -- but those are the only people who should really consider spending 500 Wii Points here.

Presentation - 4.0
Graphics - 5.0
Sound - 5.0
Gameplay - 5.0
Lasting Appeal - 4.0
Overall - (A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, Wii) 4.5/10
