de Blob 2 may not be a hardcore action game or a puzzle title that features a unique premise, but the game is pure simple fun. The colors, levels and comedic touches combine to make that will be loved by young gamers and appreciated b those in the older crowd who are used to blasting away at aliens or zombies. At times the paint does start to wear thin a bit during the voyage that is de Blob 2, but as a whole it’s one of the most refreshing games I’ve played this year.
+ The paint mechanics and seeing the world come to life with every bounce or wall run is really fun.
+ A lot of the game relies on somewhat simplistic humor but it’s well executed and the underlying themes of the plot are somewhat deep.
+ The variety in the enemies and special abilities is really nice and helps inject a lot of character into the game.
+ Visually the game is beyond crisp and there’s no noticeable lag when coloring the world or enemies.
- Occasionally the camera can get a bit wonky
- Over time the game does get slightly repetitive but never to the point of pure boredom
- Not having dedicated multiplayer modes outside of co-op is slightly disappointing.
I like playing games a lot, if that wasn’t clear for all the peeps out there. But sometimes I find myself either a bit depressed or bored with the games I play, not because of so-so production values or shoddy gameplay, but because the games themselves are just so mean or brutal. I definitely like a game in which I can let loose and have fun demolishing an entire city or become a crazed citizen as I jack cars and kill people, but every now and then it helps if I play something that lifts my spirits up from their already jaded and occasionally depressed state.
