This game is "decent".

The game concept itself is pretty interesting. You're a blob that gets bigger the more he eats, and you can eat bigger things when you get bigger. It's a concept that took the Katamari series and propelled it to the hearts of many. It's a fun and proven concept. Except here, it's done terribly.

The game itself feels like a generic movie based video game. If you've ever played one, like the Spongebob: The Movie video game, you know that while the concept sounds fun, the execution can be very boring.

On to the game itself. The game runs well on the computer. Immediately apparent are the shaky camera controls: They're annoying. It might be one of those things that could be a deal breaker, but if you think you can deal with them, make sure you see a video of the game being played.

The gameplay for the game is puzzle based. However, the puzzles are extremely simple, and the game ends up being an annoying fetch quest style game. All you do is run across the map and get whatever object is required to pass through whatever obstacle is in your way. And this wouldn't be so tedious were the characters a little faster. The blob is slow, and you have to wait for it to catch up every now and then.

The game isn't too good. If you consider the possibilities of a gigantic, fiery blob wreaking havoc everywhere and think to yourself that it sounds like a great idea, this game isn't what you're expecting.

I have yet to finish The Maw after starting it twice, and it's not because it's a bad game, but more so to do with the slow, plodding pacing the game provides. This was the developer's first XBLA game and it shows a bit so many years down the road; playing the game feels very slow and VERY by the numbers (go here, collect, door opens, repeat). The characters are REALLY cute & charming though and shows the beginnings of what was to come in 'Splosionman and Comic Jumper.
Cute, funny, but ultimately is a bit of a snooze to play.

The core mechanics of the game are simple enough. Even when things get more complicated they're still very basic and easy. But its everything else about the game that I love. The art style, the humor and the music are all top notch. Luckily the game is pretty short because i could see it becoming boring if it went on too long.

Hard to complete some of the final levels without running into a game stopping bug. I'd stay away from this one.

It is an okay game, kids seem to enjoy it, but it can be painfully boring\slow at times. May not appeal to everyone.
