The guys of Gaming Boulevard wrote a review of A Boy and his Blob and concluded:
A Boy and his Blob still is a very enjoyable and cute game. It combines platform elements with puzzles in the best way possible. The game is rather challenging but never frustrating, if you can think outside the box, you’ll have no trouble to conquer the challenges the game throws at you. The modern port is done nicely but doesn’t differ that much from the original Wii version. Sure, the loading times are reduced and the game looks a little sharper but we missed some details we’re used to see in games nowadays. That being said, if you’re looking for an adorable adventure that combines platforming with puzzling, this is the one you need to get.
