A Boy and his Blob for Wii


Just about everyone who played 1989's A Boy and his Blob for the Nintendo Entertainment System loved it. There's something bizarrely wonderful about feeding a gelatinous goo-pile jellybeans so that he turns into a ladder. But luckily, if you missed it, a new version is coming to the Wii this fall!

Majesco and WayForward are responsible for reintroducing this 20 year old platformer to a new generation. The game features "groundbreaking hand drawn and painted animation technology," with the aim of giving the finished product "a polished, cinematic feel."

"When a boy and his blob first appeared in 1989, it captured the imagination of gamers everywhere with its heartwarming storyline and unique gameplay," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco Entertainment in a press release. "Twenty years later, we are proud to bring an updated - yet still charming - reimagining of this beloved title to a new generation of Wii players."

Check out all the new screens here and a full, official description of the game is below the cut.

In A Boy and his Blob, an evil emperor has seized the throne of Blobolonia, and the fate of its inhabitants lies in the hands of the blob and a young boy he encounters when he crash lands on Earth. Playing the part of the boy, gamers must work together with their new blob friend to solve puzzles, defeat monsters, and escape danger on Earth and Blobolonia. By feeding the blob jelly beans, players can activate his special abilities to transform him into helpful tools - including a ladder, trampoline, parachute, cannon, shield and many more. Every different blob form aids the boy as he navigates 40 side-scrolling levels filled with hidden treasures and unlockable bonus content on the way to the Emperor's Citadel. Classic beans such as Licorice Ladder, Apple Jack, and Tangerine Trampoline, are joined by all-new jellybeans, including Bubble Gum Bubble and Caramel Cannon to provide a brand new play experience that only Wii can provide!
