Roll Up: Mutant Blobs Attack

Resembling a hybrid of Gish and Katamari Damacy, Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, is a PS Vita title that is set to infiltrate Steam on August 15th. As I've never even touched a PS Vita ,I can only report second hand that handheld holders mostly greeted the sci-fi silliness with a hearty roar of approval. The game is apparently more of a platformer than the Katamari Damacy comparison might suggest, although it is necessary to absorb and grow in order to pass obstacles and checkpoints. The short trailer below also shows a glimpse of the top-down minigame levels, enhanced for PC.

The Blob legitimately terrified me when I first saw it, even if the film probably stemmed from subconscious cultural memories of the Boston Molasses Disaster, which I knew nothing of at that time. Them! caused a few sleepless nights as well and those early experiences left me with a fondness for fifties sci-fi horror and its culmination in some of the greatest television ever made.

Mutant Blobs Attack looks decent as well, even if it is lacking a Rod Serling introduction.
