Anybody even remotely conversant in recreation franchises like Puyo Pop and Tetris will really feel proper at residence with Raining Blobs. It’s a puzzle recreation by which you want to match up colored globules that fall down the display with a view to wipe them from the board, scoring combos and factors within the course of. That’s kind of all there’s to it.
The sport makes an attempt to inject one thing distinctive to the gameplay by making certain that you may solely do away with teams of colors by matching up the blobs which might be imprinted with a star (and even this is not that authentic, as Tremendous Puzzle Fighter pulled the identical trick many years in the past). This implies that you may successfully construct up potential combos by making certain the starred blobs stay separate, earlier than finally clearing the entire bunch in a single fell swoop. It’s a genuinely great way of introducing a sure diploma of technique, and is an extremely efficient method of sending a complete load of junk to your opponent’s display when enjoying 1v1.
There are a number of modes out there from the beginning, most fascinating of which is the event mode and the puzzle mode. The event mode pits you in opposition to more and more tough CPU opponents, who get quicker and extra aggressive as you progress. There’s a touch of a storyline featured right here, however hardly something to get enthusiastic about. The puzzle mode presents you with varied layouts of blobs on the display. You’re then handed only one pair of blobs so as to add your self, with the target of clearing your entire board in a single go. You can even add non-obligatory CPU opponents on this mode so as to add a aggressive edge.
Visually, the sport appears to be like kind of because it ought to, albeit with little or no further aptitude. There are a number of characters to select from, and their background photographs are respectable sufficient, however there’s really no incentive to decide on one character over one other, apart from private choice. General, it lacks lots of character, and with nothing to actually set it aside from its contemporaries, there’s little or no to suggest right here except you’re an enormous fan of the style. On the flip facet, the music is fairly nice, providing catchy tunes that actually follow you.
