Ratings and Reviews
I really want to like this
I really want to like this game, but the controls leave a lot to be desired. The sensitivity of the boys movement is sluggish. And without iPhone X support, if your finger slips off the playable screen, which it does for me on a regular basis, you lose control of the boy. I love the visual nostalgia of the game and I really hope that the developers can make these tweaks.
It’s not the original and yes the controls and game can be difficult. However once you pass the learning curve this is a great updated version to the original.
The original game on the NES was hard and took many replays to advance. This game too requires the same but that’s what makes it feel so good once you figure it out.
Had to give it 5 stars to balance the low ratings. I do wish it would have the iPhone X supported screen.
Oh, the memories!
If you grew up with an NES in your childhood, you might be familiar with A Boy and His Blob. It’s the product of something of an industry pioneer, David Crane, who was already famous on the Atari 2600 for Pitfall, Pitfall 2, and probably others I can’t recall. It was as Nintendo Hard as it gets. I never did beat it as a kid. I’m giving it a go now. It’s still quite difficult. It’s also quite charming. Give this one a try. It’s a flawless port of the Wii port of a true classic. This one has pedigree.
