Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a decidedly tongue-in-cheek platformer, set in a retro science fiction take on the 1950's.

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack looks set to be a loving pastiche of the monster movies of the 1950's with a simple plot featuring the escape of mutated intelligent blobs from a research laboratory. Throughout their escape the blobs will consume anything in their path, gradually growing to enormous size to eat tanks and helicopters, in a kind of violent 2D take on Touch My Katamari (Vita).

There are more than two dozen levels, with a mix of regular platforming alongside gravity defying sticky surfaces and speed runs to provide some variety. In addition to the main action which makes use of the PS Vita's touch controls, there are a series of bonus levels which are specific gyroscope control challenges.

The game was released as a downloadable title alongside the launch of the Playstation Vita on Wednesday. Early reports suggest that a certain number of the people who installed it on the first two days of release have had installation problems which require Sony Customer Support to fix. Hopefully this is an issue which Sony will resolve in downloadable Vita titles ASAP.

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is now available for the Playstation Vita.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
