Nice casual collectathon platformer. Contains platforming challenges, puzzles, secrets.

There are multiple interesting mechanics: eat things smaller than you to grow, attract and detract from things, control some mechanisms with telekinesis.
There are also parts where you use a jetpack instead. And some relaxed top-down levels.

The presentation is pretty nice and comical. Loaded with puns and game references.

★★★★★★★★☆☆

PROS:
- Original as hell.
- Fun and funny as hell.
- Glitch free and smooth as ♥♥♥♥.
- Puzzles aren't that difficult but still are a lot of fun and smooth as ♥♥♥♥.
- There are only a few soundtracks in the game (like three or four) but they never get old; the music is comical yet it has an apocalyptic feel with good melodies at the same time.
- Overall the game has a kind of Cartoon Network vibe so it makes me feel like a little kid again.

CONS:
- Epilogue cutscene was a bit of a letdown.
- Game was a bit too short to 100% (to me.)

Final Remarks:
DrinkBox Studios? Creator of Guacamelee? Sold!

. RECOMMENDED .

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is one of the best puzzle platformers I've played in a while. The few cutscenes it has are not only entertaining but, funny for their quirkiness and simplicity. The game’s mechanics are simple and easy to learn. The game presents you with a new mechanic and immediately test you on the skills they've learned. Every level never lacks it’s predecessor and doesn't necessarily increased difficulty but increases the amount of skills required to past the level. I never found myself bored with playing the levels, nor did they become repetitive. Yeah the entire point of the game is to eat things to grow in size, but the game has a nice balanced of eating things and puzzles. And once you finish a puzzle it’s such a relief to just stuff your face with random objects.

Katamario?
9/10 Really, really good.

2D Katamari-like puzzle platformer. Loads of funny references.. the main character's color scheme is even that of the prince's in Katamari. Definately worth checking out if you like platformers and puzzle games.

Mutant Blobs Attack is a fun little puzzle-platformer that’s very light in both the puzzle and platforming departments. It boils down to a short-but-sweet casual experience that will entertain, slightly challenge, and not frustrate.

The game is extremely light-hearted and is very casual. The levels are pretty short and simple. That being said, I really enjoyed the level design in this game: you have to pay attention but you don’t really have to think. It’s a nice experience: it mildly challenges (mostly only if you’re going for the gold medals), has plenty of checkpoints, and there are no overly frustrating parts. As someone who prefers casual games to frustrating ones; I can say I really enjoyed this. If you are someone who enjoys punishment from their games, you may want to look elsewhere.

There is no real story or anything, but it doesn’t need a story. There are a few catoon-esque cutscenes. The cartoonish art style and the music are a perfect match to the gameplay. The platforming was smooth for me; I used a controller and was never frustrated with controls/response. It is a short game, pretty easy to 100%. There are a handful of platforming mechanics that are mixed around to keep thinks interesting.

To surmise: Mutant Blobs Attack is a casual platformer with mild puzzle aspects and a cartoon finish. A short-medium length game that is pretty easy, yet very entertaining.
