Quite an interesting little game, it has a good concept and mechanic, unfortunately it faisl with level design quite early on.

Instead of levels that make you think of a solution, within the first 5 levels it was basic approximation and "hope" that you could convince the physics to work in your favor.

Good idea, but no, the execution of it just doesn't make it fun. I useally love these kinds of puzzle games, but this one just doesn't do it.

First off I would like to say that I am connoisseur of the finest memes life has to offer, that being said, I am fully aware that this is considered by critics to be "medium" quality on the Blart Scale of Spicy Memes.

Anyway to the review:

Graphics:
Comparable to Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 in terms of art direction and style, which makes sense because both this game and that film have HR Giger on their production teams.

Sound:
Effects are decent at best and "poop bloop" at worst all things considered. Music on the other hand is pretty Geddy Lee for the most part.

Gameplay:
I would say this game is the true Dark Souls II in terms of difficulty; FromSoftware needs to take some notes from these devs.

Overall I would give it a Peep Beep Meme Creep/Newgrounds out of ten.

Cannot recommend!

The game is super buggy - it takes me multiple loads just to get it to load and let me into puzzles to play. I get strange errors when I close the game, and often need to close the game from Task Manager.

Bugs aside... the idea behind this game is good, but the puzzles are poorly designed... the "flow" (not of liquid) of the puzzles is clunky... often to complete a level you need to trap some liquid and solve one liquid color independently, then use the "Bloop Mechanic" to untrap the other liquid to solve its puzzle parts.

If this developer would fix the bugs, and hire a good puzzle level designer - and perhaps include much more tutorial... this could be a good game.

I'm afraid as it is... the game is rubbish. Don't buy - not even on sale!

Fun puzzle game. Your main goal for all 42 puzzles is to get the liquid from the source to the target flask. There are different mechanics. Sometimes you only have a limited amount or length of lines you can draw. Or there are fancy boxes who work a little like magnets. Or there are those evil sawblades.
The levels are not too hard to solve, but getting them to 100% is not easy.

I can recommend it, if you get it on sale or in a bundle. The only bad thing about this game: no achievements, no trading cards.

Bloop is goop you got to get into a receptacle... by the use of gravity and lines. That's the problem and the solutions can be devious and fiendish even. Especially when the game doesn't register your solution as you completing the level, that's fun.

Another one of those easy to play and difficult to master games. Simple physics based puzzler by appearance it gets complex very quickly, around level 6 my brain had started to melt but that's probably just me. :)

Basic yet somewhat interesting 'story', easy to learn controls and surprisingly good soundtrack, which ranges from chill jazz to piano melodies. Progressing through 42 levels will gradually introduce new game mechanics and just in case that doesn't sound like enough content it also includes a level editor.

If you are a fan of puzzle games, particularly the 'bridge builders', Bloop is worth a second look at. Should keep you entertained for quite a few hours. Cheers.

Bloop is a pretty good puzzle game which might seem basic at first glance, but quickly becomes accessible to only die-hard puzzle fans who don’t mind spending a lot of time on a single level. It features a lot of content for a low price and has nice physics and a big challenge, however, it’s kind of annoying that you can’t skip levels at all if you’re stuck on one.

Nice puzzle game, gets pretty difficult and time-consuming after about 6 levels, and there's 42 of them so you can expect to get much playtime out of this. It's extremely cheap as well, so definitely worth your money if you like puzzle. It seems to me that there is no correct way to solve these puzzles; anything goes and experimentation gets you a long way.

Surprisingly simple, yet very challenging! I love it so far! Very cool looking and awesome concept for a game! However, first load was a bit rough if I pushed any keys during the main dialogs etc.

Otherwise working okay !

This is a nice puzzle game, 42 puzzles to solve they require alot of thinking, relaxing music, graphics design are good for an indie game, you need only your mouse to play. Overall its good game to relax and work out your brain.

Not recommended. (For me) This game is bugged the f*ck out. The first cutscene is weird, he first says what he's supposed to say at the end, and I don't see the game itself. Just that Bloop floating there. Don't waste your money on this, unless you got it for free like me...

Bloop is a quirky little physics based puzzle game, that isn't the first of its kind, but will most definitely not be the last, so what makes this little game so interesting? Let's dive in and find out.





Gameplay: 83/100 B-

Nothing revolutionary here, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. What Bloop lacks in innovation, it more than makes up for it with a polish in gameplay. It's not perfect and some levels are a bit of a pain to figure out, but they're not impossible, in fact, they're clever and often times will require the player to think outside of the box. It's a simple game, very few controls and a handful of concepts to master, but like any good puzzle game, it has a nice balance between simplicity and complexity.


Audio: 92/100 A-

Some folks might think I'm giving this game a little too high a score for the audio, but I'm a sucker for good sound development, but even more for jazzy/lounge soundtracks and Bloop is filled with it along with other tracks, but they are never distracting or overwhelming, taking away from your concentration. If the soundtrack was available to buy, I would most definitely buy it. Aside from that, the game's effects aren't anything unique, but like the gameplay, is well made.


Visuals: 84/100 B-

Speaking of distractions, the visuals are a bit messy. I don't mean it in a bad way, it's cool looking and full of little gags that made me giggle like a schoolgirl, but the faded watercolor look sometimes drew my attention away from the problem I was trying to solve (Or was that just Borderlands 2 vying for my attention again?). Anyways, back on point, Bloop isn't bad to look at all, the colors are all nice and the shapes and stylings are, well - bloopy.


Content: 75/100 C

There isn't really much here to talk about besides the gradual progression of puzzles and difficulty. You probably won't be blasting through the game in an hour or even two, but once you get done with it, that's kinda it. It's a good time killer, but once spent, it won't do much for you, so you're better off sharing it and letting others try it out.


Design: 77/100 C+

One of Bloop's selling points is it's organic and physics based puzzles, that said, this involves a good portion of open world problem solving, involving you the player to create your own solutions more or less, within the bounds of the stage in the form of number of moves, or pieces you can use. The game could definitely benefit some small zoom option, but it's really nitpicking. It does what it needs to do.


Performance: 79/100 C-

This would definitely be higher if it wasn't for the simple fact that on the highest resolution, this simple game seemed to lag on my computer. I couldn't figure it out. Of course on the lowest resolution, it was smooth as butter, but a bit harder to read. Overall, the game ran just fine. There isn't much you can really tweak and outside of the resolution, the other options didn't seem to affect the games performance by much.


Verdict: 82/100 B-

Bloop is nice. Bloop is friendly. Bloop isn't hateful. Bloop is just Bloop. It's a fun game for the most part and while it may only be worth one or two playthroughs per person, it is definitely a game you should give to another person, especially as a way to introduce someone to the physics based puzzler.
