8.4/10 - An Expertly Crafted Puzzle Platformer And Alot More!!

You are a blob from space that has escaped captivity; now you must squeeze down pipes, flatten into creveces and ultimately eat everything in your path. When you eat everything you will become larger and be able to conquer obsticles that once seemed impossible. Nothing can stop the blob!

There's not too much to dislike about this game! It has a great balance with levels, puzzles, mini games and well done humorous cut scenes. This game is a platformer but should be characterized as more since it brings so many well crafted elements together.

Worth the full $8, but I've seen this cheap often. Once on sale consider checking this one out!

Review in English/Spanish
Análisis en Inglés y Español:

English:
Several people recommended this game to me and I wasn’t too keen on getting it but oh boy was I wrong. Fun and solid platformer with aesthetics straight out of an old comic book. I just wish it was a bit longer.

Español:
Típico juego que todo el mundo recomienda pero cuando miras no apetece mucho y puedo decir, ¡vale la pena! con una premisa típica de comics antiguos y una fachada visual de las decadas de los 40-60 sumado a una jugabilidad ingeniosa y entretenida hacen de Mutant Blobs Attack una receta ganadora.

Lo único malo es su duración (2-3 horas máximo).

A simple yet very well made platformer.
Your character is a blob that after seeing its friends being experimented on breaks free and takes revenge by continually absorbing objects smaller than itself, starting small and working up to people, cars, cities, the Earth and even are Sun (yesh).
With a good mix of unique challenges along the way, themed mini games & funny little cinematic the story is fun and really draws you in.
This game could easily be enjoyed by any age, but a little patience will be required to gold rate all levels, but it was a pleasure to go back and lay the ones I didn't get on my first run.

Would definitely recommend this brilliant little game. 9/10

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a short platforming puzzle game where you run around each level eating items growing bigger and stronger to overcome large obstacles that block your way. The art, sound and music are all very well done and all the areas and levels are vastly different. Your blob also gets some different abilites later in the game and some new mechanics get introduced to help vary the puzzles and the levels quite a bit. This is an awesome platforming puzzle game that's a lot of fun!
