20th update! Ver 1.6!



20th update brings:

  1. Redesigned first menu screen.
  2. Improved blobs rotation. Now it is much smoother and a micro glitch where the rotating blob would disappear in one frame is fixed.
  3. Rare hidden gamepads issues fixed. Issues were happening when 2 or more gamepads were connected and you would like to change P1 gamepad and some other rare cases.
  4. Micro adjustment of hold left/right movement.
  5. Minor flying garbage stars improvement.
  6. At the end of Tournament there is now total play time if you finish without continues.
  7. When you get 90 or more garbage accumulated the release timer starts counting down right away and not at the moment when new pieces show up.

After so many updates I can say that this is the ultimate version!
Now I will probably focus on porting it to Xbox One and maybe other consoles/devices later on.
This does not mean that there won't be more updates, I have more cool stuff planned for the future ;)

Take a look at Xbox One gameplay video:

New update, ver 1.55!

Update brings:

  • When moving blobs, not only are the groups that are about to be cleared marked but also the garbage. This will give you better presentation about how the garbage is cleared and help you play more strategically.
  • Overall SFX play improvements. Now you can hear more sounds play at once especially in 8+ player matches.
  • Drop location small blobs are now different for blobs with stars and without stars.
  • Some AI tweaks.
  • When playing Puzzle mode now there is a counter on the board of how many puzzles you have solved.
  • How To Play P1 controller layout with actions improvements.
  • Minor menu tweaks and improvements.
  • All textures repacked to minimize number of files and improve loading speed.
I think there will be only one more update before a potentially awesome thing happens for Raining Blobs, check it out! ;)



Enjoy!

As someone who is a very devoted fan of Japanese arcade puzzle games (with Puyo Puyo and Magical Drop being my favorite), I think Raining Blobs does an excellent job with its presentation and mechanics. It's very well-thought out, frantic and rewarding once you get in the mindset for it. The various modes cover all the standard game types (arcade, endless...) and the puzzle mode flows really well, making smart use of the game's mechanics.

The only complaint I have right now is a lack of online multiplayer (it still has local multiplayer), but the game doesn't rely on it and the CPU gives you a proper challenge.

Pros:
+ Great Pixel Art accompanied by catchy music.
+ Fast-pace tile-matching gameplay that’s easy to learn.
+ Leaderboards to test your mantle and aim for the top score.
+ Anime/Sexy anime girls who will show off when hitting higher levels.
+ 8 Player Local Versus/Co-op.

Cons:
– A bit of a difficulty spike in Tournament Mode after stage two.
– Said difficulty spike could hinder a person from completing tournament mode before practice.

“Raining Blobs” is a fun puzzle game that has that bit of fan service to motivate you, but it’s not necessarily for the causal crowd. This is more a game for the hardcore “Tetris/Puyo Puyo” players. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a challenge, a good party game (or just need a puzzle fix). Then look no further than “Raining Blobs”! And as an extra bonus, the game´s ladies aim to please you.

Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here from Universal Gaming Reviews to bring you a short summary/review for Raining Blobs!

If you'd like to read our full review for the game, you can find it here: https://www.universalgamingreviews.com/raining-blobs-overview-review/

Raining Blobs is a very entertaining and addictive puzzle game that harkens back to the puzzle games of old. It feels like a combination of Tetris and Dr. Mario but it adds it's own setup to give it its own feel.

The game is competitive in nature and features gameplay for up to 16 players (8 Humans and 8 AI players) so it's great for some intense couch co-op gameplay.

There's also a tournament mode where you battle your way through each of the game's 8 characters until you defeat the boss Enya. A new mode called Puzzle Mode was released the day we released our review as well.

The game is an excellent addition to the overcrowded puzzle game genre and if there's one game in the endless sea of puzzle games that you should try out, it's Raining Blobs.

We gave the game 4.5 Stars out of 5 and since we enjoyed the game quite a bit we're giving it our recommendation here on Steam as well.

We also recorded a gameplay video which you can find below. Happy gaming folks!

The puzzle genre is filled with so much junk games. There isn't enough quality puzzle games. Fortunately there is Raining Blob. This puzzle game is made with competition in mind. It's much deeper than Bejewels and Candy Crush. Best of all, it's ideal for playing with friends. 8 players on 1 machine! LOL. I enjoy the pixel art & 16 bit style animated backgrounds.

I just tried it out, but the controls are so strange and the menu layout isn't really a good help, cause it is also pretty confusing. After I studied the well hidden tutorial now, I played another arcade match, which I quitted after a while, because it was too boring to me. The tournament then doesn't seem well balanced.
All in all, this game wasn't fun to me, and this is what a game is for.
Because of the reasons above I cannot recommend this game.

Copy provided by developer for promotion consideration at http://isthereanydeal.com

As a fan of Qwirks and similar block/stuff dropping puzzle games I can only recommend this.
While there is a single player mode with leaderboards and achievements to keep you motivated, the game gets even better once more players join. And then you can fight in teams and that's just great.

Above that the developer is polishing the game and adding new things with every update, you can set your own rules, etc, Just read the updates and you'll see what you got and what you can expect.

Love this game. A lot. Slight hybrid of puyo puyo and super puzzle fighter II turbo. I dig the art style, everything works well, controls feel very responsive (I've been using a game pad). It's a blast to play.

People, please stop comparing this to Puyo Puyo or Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. It's not that. It's more akin to Puzzle Fighter. Heck, it is basically Puzzle Fighter except with a few but important rule changes.

That said, this is a pretty good multiplayer block dropping game, and in an increasingly saturated marketplace there still aren't many of these. It's like puzzle fighter, except with a few rule changes that creates real good push/pull between players: You rack up block clears and combos to create garbage, but the other player will only receive that garbage if it clears four or more blocks. So your opponent can dump 20 garbage blocks on you, but you can recover given that you have a good amount of blocks or a combo to clear.

It is a little bare, the tournament mode is very simple and it's various endings for each character are only in the form of a few sentences at the end. There isn't a whole lot of visual content to look at, the faux-anime girl style only exists in the character select and backgrounds.

But what is in the game is very solid and polished. Stacking blobs results in a satisfying squish, effects stand out enough and in such a way that you can read your opponent's status with just your peripheral vision. The music is charming and the sound effects are perfect for this type of game. The rules are simple enough to learn quickly and rewards tactful thinking and working under pressure. Also, since indie games do less of this as time goes on: It works. Everything works. No weird glitches, no unpolished bullcrap to swallow, everything just works.

Raining Blobs is a really well-made competitive puzzle game in the same vein as Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, among others. Totally worth the small asking price. All the elements are present - great controller options, and tons of variations for customizing gameplay. Lots of options here.

And the best part is that it supports up to 8 players at once!!! That is simply unheard of in my book.

If this is your jam, I whole-heartedly recommend this game, without question.

Easy to pick up and hard to put down, Raining Blobs is an exciting arcade puzzler like the old Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (or Puyo Puyo), but better. This game offers six difficulty levels and three different speed levels, along with a solo mode, battle mode (supporting up to eight players) and tournament mode.

To me, this is the best game in the genre since Super Puzzle Fighter II (1996), and I like how friendly or brutal it can be. Also, it's worth mentioning that there's a colorblind option, making the game accessible to everyone.

The anime appeal is a double-edged sword. I like it (and I'm sure there's a lot of people who'll discover the game because of it), but some people can mistakenly pass the game because of the girls. Either way, it doesn't really matter, since the player will be much more focused on the playfield.

All in all, I can't recommend Raining Blobs enough if games like Puyo Puyo, Columns, Dr. Mario, and even Tetris, are your cup of tea. For a small asking price, you'll get an addictive and very well made game to play alone and/or with friends - and you can even team up with CPU bots to get the co-op achievements!

This game plays in a similar manner to Puyo Puyo (or Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, if you prefer), with some altered rules, if you are into these kind of games you really should have a look at this. Especially recommended if you have people to couch play with, because of the 8-players support

Familiar enough to games like Dr. Mario to be able to jump right in with no tutorials and be comfortable and have a good time. Different enough to be interesting, not boring, and can get challenging and chaotic, not too easy - nicely balanced. Well polished visuals. Good game, give it a shot. Up to 8 (16?) players!?! https://twitter.com/RainingBlobs/status/692889989739249664

3 words to describe this game: Fun, Addictive, Competitive!
My friends and I are having a blast playing this game, and it just gets better and better.

I have to say - The work done with the music and the art is just FLAWLESS.
The visuals in general and & the retro style - combined with great effects are more than just eye candy.

You can never have 1 of your friends "just watching" - if you see you will want to play! And the fact that we can play up to 8 people is just wonderful.

GREAT GAME OVERALL!
THANK YOU!!
