This game is created by no one other than David Crane (creator of Pitfall!)

A Boy and His Blob is best described as an action/platformer in which the character and his friend Blob (full name Blobert) travel together on earth and on Blobert’s home planet Blobolonia in a quest to defeat the evil emperor.

Blobert can change into several different items when he is fed jelly beans. A licorice jelly bean, for instance, will change Blobert into a ladder, while a honey jelly bean will turn him into a hummingbird. As you can imagine, you use these jelly beans to travel around the world and get over obstacles.

In those early Ninenties I thought the game was freaking hard. But I loved it so much, unbelievable. I can remember I went to the local toyshop to grab a NES game, and went ou with this one. Nobody of my friend or the people in the shop knew this would be an instant classic!

Be sure to play this game nowadays! It’s still challenging.
