Description

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a sci-fi puzzle-platformer of CATACLYSMIC proportions. You’re a Blob with mutant powers and an insatiable appetite… and you’ve escaped into the world. The player can grow by eating loose objects in the game environment. Over the course of each level, the player encounters a series of obstacles they must grow large enough to bypass. The game combines traditional 2D thumbstick-based platforming controls with touch-based powers and abilities. Physics-based puzzles are often mixed in with the action.

History

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack was released on February 21, 2012, as a launch title of the PlayStation Vita. It is the sequel to Tales from Space: About a Blob. Mutant Blobs Attack was later released for PC with versions for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 released in June 2014.

Selected Articles

  • "Where so many of today's releases force players into gameplay cycles that provide diminishing returns of fun with every revolution, Drinkbox is constantly inventing baubles in Mutant Blobs Attack to entertain the player. It's doubly impressive for a title that asks only eight bucks in exchange."
    - Justin McElroy. 2012. TALES FROM SPACE: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK REVIEW: SECRET OF THE OOZE [9/10], Polygon
  • "Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack stole my heart."
    - Greg Miller. 2012. Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Review [9/10], IGN
  • "Severed is the most promising platform exclusive at this point in time, so if you’re a fan of everything weird and awesome about the independent development scene, you’d be doing yourself a disservice not keeping an eye on this touch-based game that, you know, doesn’t suck."
    - Mike Spletchta. 2012. Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!! review [9/10], GameZone

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack OST
A soundtrack from another time and another place. Featuring catchy arrangements of unappreciated instruments. Xylophones, tubas, organs, kettle drums - even a Theremin (look it up) - dominate Peter Chapman's wildly eccentric score. Spooky, refreshing and drawing heavily from the Esquivelian Exotica movement of the 50s/60s, this score is guaranteed to bring a smile to your ears. Featuring 16 tracks remastered in ''Living Stereo'', all flowing together like one giant song. Capped by a mind-blowing, 80's synth-dominated anthem by the incomparable Shaun Hatton. drinkbox.bandcamp.com.
