Battle against massive tank battalions, speedy I.N.K.T. racers and elite Inky soldiers on your quest to free the citizens of Chroma City. Avoid hot plates, electric shocks and inky turrets to create your own path to the impenetrable I.N.K.T. Fortress. Just remember that the struggle to reclaim Chroma City is to be fought on your terms. Remix the city in your own image using custom paints, patterns and soundtracks. Super-size your blob to attack larger and stronger enemies. Join the Color Revolutionaries to refine your skills while making a mess. The race to rescue Chroma City has just begun, and only de Blob can save the world from a black-and-white future.

Gameplay: de Blob's Primary Goal
de Blob is a 3D platformer where players use the Wii Remote/Nunchuck combo to maneuver their hero, de Blob. Equal parts amorphous blob of paint, struggling artist, revolutionary and juvenile delinquent, de Blob's goal is to replace the drab, lifeless gray coloring that the I.N.K.T. Corporation has imposed on Chroma City and its inhabitants, the Raydians, with a range of vibrant life-giving colors, all the while avoiding and battling the gray-clad forces of the Inkies.

Players must acquire paint and hurl de Blob at the buildings, walls, statues, roads and skies above Chroma City. As de Blob bounces around, adding color wherever he lands, his supply of paint is depleted and he begins to dry out. As this happens players must collect more paint and rehydrate in pools and in front of hydrants scattered across the city. As the game starts access is limited to the colors red, blue and yellow, but these can be blended to create a number of other colors. Being able to create and apply these colors becomes important as Chroma City and its inhabitants come to life, and de Blob makes contact with a range of other characters known as the 'Color Revolutionaries' and receives an increasing amount of missions that charge him with splattering color all over town. Success at these mission gains the player point which drives the game forward, eventually leading to a direct assault on Comrade Black's I.N.K.T. fortress guarded by elite Inky soldiers and massive ink turrets.

Key Game Features:

  • de Blob - Flip, bounce and paint your way past the all-powerful I.N.K.T. Corporation to launch a revolution and save Chroma City from a future without vibrant color.
  • Long Live Color! - Join the Color Revolutionaries in the resistance against the evil Comrade Black and his diabolical array of hot plates, electric shocks, and ink turrets.
  • Free the Citizens - Free your friends from a black and white world by dodging ink cannons, flattening I.N.K.T. tanks and outsmarting Inky soldiers.
  • Save your City - Remix Chroma City’s towering skyscrapers, expansive bridges and massive landmarks in your own style using custom paints, patterns and soundtracks.
  • Make a Mess - Super-size your blob as you splash, spray, and splatter everything you touch in sprint, race and combat challenges.
  • Multiplayer - Compete for control as ink levels rise and wind cannons fire in eight multiplayer-specific gameplay modes.
Plenty of Play Modes
de Blob features both a deep story-driven singleplayer mode where players get to dig into the Raydian's struggle against all-powerful I.N.K.T. Corporation, as well as a diverse range of multiplayer options. These multiplayer campaigns support up to four players, come with street and sewer maps and include four player split-screen functionality. Just a few of the multiplayer campaigns include:

Paint Match - Paint as many buildings as possible and steal points from opponents by re-painting the buildings that they've already covered.

Blob on the Run - A variation of 'Capture the Flag,' in this mode only one blob can paint and is pursued by opponents who attempt to slam him into submission and gain the ability to paint and accumulate points themselves.

Blob Race - In this mode buildings can only be painted once and are indicated by in-game arrow. With time limited it's a race not only to paint the town but also to keep opponents from doing the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Painter and The Saviour September 25, 2008

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is game is coloring book on steroids. Your are a super hero. Your power is providing colors, lots and lots of them. You rescue the world that has fallen into gray boredom. What a premise... :). I wish in real life there is a super hero. Makes all our life cheerful and colorful.

You really have to know the basics of colors. What and what adds upto the final color. The music changes as your blob changes color. They have picked up very appropriate elements for every color. When you hear new music for the first time as the color changes, it will give you a high kick to your brain. Very well executed game play with minute care to details.

The basic structure of the game is similar to Katamari. You roll around, jumping and painting all the surfaces etc. etc. Open up more new section and add more colors. The game play never gets repetitive. As the levels progress you have to go from coloring every thing to coloring particular sections and mix and match things. The game play is always fresh. For any one who doesnt know about this game, it started as a free PC game in EU. So they have had enough background to make sure the game is nicely flushed out.

Camera work is the best I have seen in recent times. The fixed camera works as tight as in God of War. Controls are sharp, you never miss a jump. Even in 3rd person every thing works perfect. For love of gaming, buy this one. For any one complaining Wii doesn't have good 3rd party games. Take a hard look at Bloom Box and this game.

Pros:
- The game itself.
- Fantastic theme and Art direction
- Graphics. This is probably the best looking Wii game. Runs at 60 fps 16:9 wide screen.
- Audio. Exceptional, it is layered audio. You actions change what you hear

Cons:
- Very poor marketing. They never advertised it well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Support Good Games... October 2, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
DeBlob is a game that has always LOOKED great. Through screenshots and early gameplay footage, it's always looked like a very promising title. Even the box art LOOKS great, but with the power of current gen consoles, a lot of games can look great, and play horribly. DeBlob thankfully lives up to its style and graphical prowess. The game is just as fun as it looks like it would be.

You play the part of a paint ball, jumping around a gray world, painting the town red (or green, yellow, orange, etc.) Meanwhile the evil 'Inkies' are dead set on keeping things dull and rubbing you out. The people of a the world are depressed and oppressed, and it's up to you and an underground group of rebels to set them free.

The game is just FUN. It's great fun jumping from building to building slopping paint around everywhere you go. Even on the load screen, you can point the wiimote at the screen and doodle while you're waiting. The game just oozes with personality. It's got the dry sense of humor of the Rabbids games, or early Lucasarts titles. There are lots of challenges set up along the way (ie. paint 50 buildings yellow in 60 seconds, etc.) to keep things interesting, or you can just explore and try to paint all the tree, buildings or townsfolk before the (generous) timer runs out.

My only knock is the lack of a jump button. It's something many players have mentioned. You jump by flicking the wiimote down, and while it works, its just not as accurate as a button press. The controls are very responsive however and this is only a slight setback.

DeBlob is easy enough for children, and at the same time offers enough extra challenges for any level of gamer, and is an all around great family game. It's a clear 'must own' title for the Wii and one that should not be overlooked. I hope gamers will choose to support DeBlob so publishers will take more risks with titles like this! No more shovelware!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games on Wii September 27, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
de Blob is a fantastic original game with beautiful graphics, a cool jazzy soundtrack, and lots of fun challenges to keep you occupied. The presentation is top notch as the developer obviously put a lot of thought, energy, and humor into the creation of this game. There's a range of difficulty to the challenges and goals so there's really something to appeal to different types of gamers. More casual gamers can just roll Blob around and color buildings while hardcore gamers can go for 100% completion and try to complete tougher and tougher challenges with time limits. Whatever your desired challenge level, you're bound to have a great time playing this game.

The graphics are crisp, clean, and most of all, colorful. The game runs in full 480p widescreen for those that have an HDTV and have invested in the Wii's component video cable for the proper connection. de Blob's graphics are a big part of its unique style and fun factor.

I can't give the jazzy soundtrack enough praise. It provides a great atmosphere that compliments the graphical style perfectly. Also, it's more dynamic than just being a set list of songs that you hear as you are playing through the various levels. First of all, you can select different moods for Blob, which affects the soundtrack for each level. Even more impressive is the fact that different instruments are added into the mix depending on the current color of Blob and how much of the level you've colored.

While de Blob has a couple of different multiplayer modes, I haven't tried them out yet, but I've heard pretty good things about them from game review websites.

I'd strongly recommend de Blob to anyone who wants a fresh, fun, and original gaming experience on Wii.
