Puzzle enthusiasts have recently been treated to a plethora of real life escape rooms meant to test their problem-solving prowess. Video games have been exploring this concept for a while, but the timeliness of the release of the first-person exploration game The Guest has put a spotlight on how well-executed games can be almost as good as the real thing. Successfully towing the line with the difficulty of its puzzles, The Guest is a solid first-person experience with a slightly bizarre story.
Growing up, I never had a powerful PC, so the majority of my multiplayer gaming took place on a couch next to my friends. In those days of Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye, a split screen meant that every player’s screen was available to view. It was agreed, almost always silently, that cheating by glancing at your buddy’s section of the TV was not okay. Today, Samurai Punk has developed Screencheat, a game where this is not only possible, but one of the only ways you can locate your opponents.
Puzzle-platforming games tend to go one of two ways with their mechanics: Quantity or quality. A Boy and His Blob certainly meets the conditions for quantity, but ended up leaving me wanting more in the realm of quality. With that in mind, are the adorable visuals and shockingly haunting soundtrack enough to carry the game all the way to the end? Grab your bag of jelly beans and come with me on a ride down nostalgia lane as I review A Boy and His Blob for the PC.
