A Boy and His Blob might have been a very innovative title when it was first released, but games have come a long way since 1989 and with the release of a brilliant remake of the game on the Wii console, you can't help but notice how dated the gameplay of this NES original feels by comparison. Sure there's still some fun to be had, but much like the reaction the game received when it was first released, the game is probably even more likely to get mixed reactions from Wii owners who end up taking a chance on this Virtual Console release.
If you're a long-time fan of this game or you just couldn't get enough of the Wii remake, you'll most likely get a kick out of this classic NES release. But for everyone else, you'd be better suited to approach this one with caution as it can be a bit tedious for those who aren't prepared for exactly what the game has to offer. 6/10
