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 .

A cute, simple platformer that's enjoyable for all ages. You are a blob who eats what is smaller than you. As you eat you grow meaning that you eventually can eat just about everything you see. The levels are well designed and the art style, music and sounds all work perfectly for a fun experience. Expect a bit of a challenge if you plan to get all gold and unlock all achievements, but you won't pull your hair out. The gameplay is simple, and slowly new additions to the gameplay are unveiled as you progress in the forgetful but entertaining storyline. You will learn how to wall jump, how to use your telekinesis powers to move levers and slide platforms, and how to use magnets that attract and push you away.

Nothing hugely groundbreaking at all, but there's nothing wrong with taking a known to work recipe and splashing with a fresh coat of paint for you to enjoy. Definitely recommend, especially if you are playing with kids.

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.
