Blobs Peg Solitaire

CNET Editors' review

This free game might be simple, but it still packs a formidable challenge. You might think of Blobs Peg Solitaire as an update to the time-tested formula found in games such as Chinese checkers. Your goal is to jump small and slimy green blobs over one another to remove as many as possible from the board. If more the one blob remains at the end of the game, you don't pass that level. The game offers 100 game boards varying from simple to near impossible, which ensures that it will provide entertainment for quite some time. The feature set is rather small, but you can choose to adjust the sound effects volume and play levels at random to spice things up. The Flash-based graphics are about what you'd expect from a game like this, which is to say they're not amazing, but not bad either. Really, our only real complaint here is that installing the program clutters your PC with a few extra desktop shortcuts. If you're a puzzle fan looking for a free way to kill some time, Blobs Peg Solitaire will be right up your alley.

    "Awful! Ad-ware everywhere."

    September 14, 2012  |   By laffanyway

    Version: Blobs Peg Solitaire 2.052

    Pros

    Satisfied my fit of nostalgia for this game in about five minutes

    Cons

    NCBUY added three additional icons to my desktop, despite my carefully un-checking offers for BuzzDock and Coupon Companion offered in an upfront manner by the CNET installer. The following were not even mentioned during the install process but were added to my Start Menu: "Magazine Subscription Trials","Download More Games" and my favorite; Credit Card Offers and Reviews. Oh wait, there were more on my Desktop: FREE Credit card Reviews (not the same as the one I mentioned previously with a similar name), and "NCBUY Downloads". Also, they placed a folder with deceptively simple name "Shared" in my Program Files folder. I'm just saying ...if you are going to download this sweet little game you are going to get a whole lot of ad-ware with it.

    Summary

    There must be someone out there who enjoys being buried in junky ads. If you are that person, this is the download for you.

    "Good Game"

    May 30, 2007  |   By BALLOONIST

    Version: Blobs Peg Solitaire 2.052

    Pros

    Simple, no frills, game. It's solitaire and nothing more - but that's what I like about it.

    Cons

    The additional advertising software (eg. for credit cards etc.)that downloads with it - naughty!
