Rise of the Blobs
I hesitated on downloading Rise of the Blobs by Robot Invader mainly because of the title of the app, lol! I’m a grown woman, so it doesn’t really sound like my cup of tea. The first sentence in the description said, “You’ve never seen a puzzle game like this before!” I was intrigued. I pretty much specialize in puzzle games of every kind! I had to try it.
Rise of the Blobs is a game about Marsh Mal the marshmallow whose world has been overrun with blobs. Your job in the game is to help Marsh Mal stop the blobs by popping them, once they have eaten a piece of fruit. You’ll drop pieces of fruit onto blobs that match that fruit’s color. Once you do that, you can pop the blob to make it explode. You can rotate the column to help your fruit hit the right blob. To drop the fruit faster, simply swipe down. There are power-ups that help you work faster! Power-ups can be purchased in the app store with the coins you earn. Keep back the rising blobs as long as you can! If the blobs rise to the top, the game is over. You lose and basically got attacked by the blobs, I suppose. There’s a meter at the top, right hand side of the screen that shows the rate the blobs are rising at. After you’ve been playing for a while, they start to rise faster and faster, making it very hard to line up the fruit that doesn’t stop falling! It’s definitely a challenge. I couldn’t believe it took me so many tries before I could win! Even though I’m a grown woman, I must say this game is addictive. I catch myself wanting to play it all the time! Don’t be fooled by the child-like animation. Rise of the Blobs is not just for kids! It’s not easy fighting back the blobs!
