2# A Boy and His Blob - 2017

Review77Score

A Boy and His Blob is a platform-puzzle video game developed by WayForward Technologies and published by Majesco Entertainment. It is a re-imagining of the 1989 video game, A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, which was originally developed by Imagineering for the NES. A Boy and His Blob's art direction has received widespread critical acclaim and praise, and was utilized by the developers, in addition to a minimalistic story, in order to create a "heartwarming...and friendly game" accessible to a wide audience. The boy can feed the blob a variety of jellybeans, which are unlocked as the game progresses and vary depending on the level, which transforms it into one of fifteen different objects that can be used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.

"Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a super tight masocore platformer that anyone can beat! Every time you die your corpse stays behind – making the game easier. As your bodies pile up, you can use them as carpets, meatshields and paperweights until the game becomes as hard as you’re comfortable with – but if you’re good enough you never have to die at all. The Rude Bear universe takes place in a fantasy British grime world, with grafitti skylines and a grime soundtrack produced by Deeco."

Review73Score

RIVE is an upcoming platforming shoot-em-up game created by the Dutch video game company Two Tribes for Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux, and is the first major release by the company after the company's downsizing and closure of their primary development team in late 2013, instead now culminating everything under a new much smaller company, while the founders still remain with the company. The game was unveiled on July 29, 2014, after a long time of quiet development of the game that originated as a 3D shooter for the Nintendo DS in 2005. The game itself will be smaller than Toki Tori 2+ was. The game will also feature a mission system and high scores for players to come back to after completing the game's story, and is planned to feature off-TV play on Wii U.
