D+PAD: Tales From Space - About A Blob Reviewed

D+PAD Magazine Writes:

Drinkbox Studios’ Tales from Space: About A Blob got us thinking that there really should be a genre created called ‘Blob ‘em ups’. Through the likes of LocoRoco, A Boy and His Blob, De Blob, Silly Putty, The Maw and many more, the humble, amorphous blobs have achieved a great deal in the world of videogames, never letting a lack of limbs hold them back. The particular blob taking centre stage in About A Blob is a versatile little orange chap who (among other things) can absorb items strewn around 2D platforming worlds and spew them out as lethal weapons. The game as a whole mirrors this ability by absorbing ideas from numerous other games, but does it manage to deliver them out with the same kind of deadly accuracy? (About a Blob, PS3, Tales from Space: About a Blob) 4/5
