A Boy and His Blob may very well have been one of the first "treasure hunt" games. In it, you play as an anonymous boy who has the most unusual of sidekicks - a shape-changing blob that loves jellybeans. Your mission is to feed this blob jellybeans, so that he will morph into different shapes to help you overcome the game's various obstacles. A Boy and His Blob is partially a unique and interesting game experience, and partially an experiment in an idea. There's a good chance that a hipster would love this game!

To be honest, I think the graphics of A Boy and His Blob are much better than what I've heard. I once heard someone compare the look of this game to what his vision of "Hell" would be like, and I think I could agree. Never before have I seen such an unintentionally frightening game environment! The backgrounds are all done very well, and it seems like the artist(s) were really trying to pack in a lot of detail. The cityscape looks amazing, especially for NES-style graphics. The only problem with the backgrounds is that you spend most of the game exploring underground caverns, most of which look alike. The Blob's world has the most interesting graphics in the game, ranging from lush green landscapes, to a candy factory, to scary-looking cornfields, and more caves. The animation of the blob character, as he bounces around and transforms into various objects, is surprisingly fluid. I especially love the different expressions on his face! It's reminiscent of the kind of animation that would be used in later games like Prince of Persia and the Genesis version of Disney's Aladdin. The most basic sprites are used to portray the scarce number of enemies in the game, such as bouncing caterpillars, cherry bombs, and marshmallows.

I bought this game because it was one of my favorites in the 80's. Having lots of fun playing these games with my grandchildren. I think they actually like my "old" games better that the new ones they have at home! The 9 year old asked if he could inherit my nintendo & all my games when I die! LOL

A Boy and His Blob: Trouble in Blobolonia
Not quite the masterpiece that is "Pitfall", but fun and enjoyable nonetheless. Stick with the Wii remake

"A Boy and His Blob: Trouble in Blobolonia", while innovative perhaps back in 1989 when it was first released, is one of those games that doesn't hold up as well today as it did back then. The video game industry has put a lot of miles behind it since then. The main theme of the game is to collect enough items to send the Blob back to his home planet.

David Crane developed and released "A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia". He is most famous for developing the seminal Atari 2600 game "Pitfall". David Crane, the main talent behind the "Pitfall!" series, left Activision and formed his own company, called Absolute Entertainment. "A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia" features a boy who feeds his blob various jelly beans. Each flavor of jellybean will turn the blob into different types of objects, creating a puzzle element to this side scrolling platformer. Originally Crane wanted to develop a toy line and a movie as well.

The game is primarily an exploration title with the unique gameplay mechanic feeding of the titular Blob different types of jellybeans to gain access to different types of treasure. The main character cannot jump or attack enemies. Different jelly beans cause different transfomrations for the blob; you can turn the Blob into a ladder or springboard or various other items.

Much of the game is locating the treasures, and then figuring out what jellybean you need to feed the blob in order to get the said treasure. There are 14 different types of jellybeans, each one of which will be needed.

There are two main worlds in the game: the Day World and Night World.
