Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack

Platform games can sometimes lose their appeal, as there are thousands of them that all do the same thing, just with different scenery. A game that was released for PS3 last year called Tales From Space: About a Blob seemed cute and interesting, but just not completely fulfilling somehow. It’s upcoming predecessor named Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack utilizes the fancy equipment inside of the PlayStation Vita to (hopefully) enhance your gaming experience.

The Blob in this game can use telekinesis, which means you can move objects/platforms around. Any item that can be moved in this manner is highlighted with a green dot, and can be touched and dragged about the screen. Rocket mode is another new ability that will let you float through the air using a rocket thruster. For this ability, you will use the back touch pad of the Vita to apply an additional boost for your Blob.

Of course, you’re going to have things from the first game, like magnetic power which lets you stick to or repel from fixed metal surfaces, and push small metal things around. To try and break from just another boring old puzzle-platform game, some tilt-based bonus games have been added in. It looks like it might be worth a try, and will be out “very soon”.
