A Boy and His Blob
When A Boy and His Blob was released on the NES in 1989, it was well received, despite being incredibly hard and generally unforgiving. The concept was good, with the titular boy feeding his pet blob jellybeans to transform the creature into various objects. Unfortunately, the lack of direction—and jellybeans—made the game more frustrating than it needed to be. When Majesco announced that they would be publishing a “re-imagining” of the title for the Wii, it seemed like a chance to make A Boy and His Blob the game it should have been two decades ago, with a beautiful aesthetic and more accessible gameplay. Though A Boy and His Blob may be a bit too simple at times, the updated graphics and gameplay mechanics make this one of the most fun Wii titles of the year.
