In A Boy and His Blob: Retro Collection, we have partnered with Limited Run Games to unearthed a pair of classics and bundled them together on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. These old-school puzzle platformers will put your skills to the test with unique mechanics to go along with all of their nostalgic goodness.
A Boy and his Blob™: Retro Collection brings a pair of NES and Game Boy hits to modern consoles––including their US and Japanese versions! Brought to the modern day with Limited Run Games’ Carbon Engine™, A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia, and its Game Boy sequel, The Rescue of Princess Blobette, have received numerous quality-of-life improvements. Graphic filters, the ability to save at any time, Achievements for Steam, and Trophies for PS4/PS5 are among the features added to the Retro Collection.
A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia set the path for the blobtacular antics of the franchise to come. The titular Boy meets a new friend in great distress: the strange and squishy Blobert (affectionately known as Blob), who tells the tale of an evil emperor threatening his home. With the power of 14 different magic jelly beans that each give Blob distinct powers, the Boy and Blob take on a brain-teasing platformer experience to save Blob’s home.
In The Rescue of Princess Blobette, enjoy the thrilling sequel, this time as the dastardly Alchemist takes over Blobolonia’s Royal Castle and traps the princess inside. Once again, it’s up to the unwavering Boy and his Blob friend to vanquish evil, save the princess, and send a menacing meddler packing.
