de Blob leaps from Wii to 360 and PS3 in his return that paints the world back to technicolor. Four player co-operative platforming is the main draw as the colourful formula gets a second bite at the cherry.
de Blob returns but not only on the Wii. February 2011 sees the colouring platform fun spread to 360, PS3 as well as on Nintendo's console. de Blob 2: The Underground brings back the characters and play style of the first game.
The shtick is the game - de Blob must colour his way through the enormous and polluted Prisma City that is filled with drab factories, ice stations and bio-domes. But this is no bad thing - the Wii game proved the formula both flexible and compelling, although failed to find the audience it deserved.
This time around there is co-op play as well as 2D side scrolling levels - as is de rigueur in 3D platform games these days. These features are joined by a host of new power ups, friends and enemies, as two to four players progress through the adventure in split-screen mode.
de Blob 2 is planned for release on 360, PS3 and Wii in February 2011.
