Rise of the Blobs is a puzzle game that challenges you to drop the proper fruit onto different colored blobs in order to pop them and stop their advance. From your perch atop a tower, you have to launch your fruits strategically before the blobs reach you.
Intuitive interface: This game's interface is smooth and intuitive. As you launch more fruits, you also have to spin the column of blobs around the tower to find the right location to drop your fruit. A slight shadow shows where the fruit will fall, and you can swipe down to drop it quickly.
Modes and locations: There are multiple locations that you can choose from, and you unlock more as you complete challenges in the game. You can also choose from a variety of game modes, including Cupcake, which doesn't require you to tap a full blob to pop it, and one with bomb blobs that you have to eliminate before the explosion.
Purchasing power-ups: The game does do its best to get you dependent on using power-ups to defeat the blobs, which you then have to purchase more of in order to stay stocked up. You will earn them through the course of normal gameplay as well, but if you use them a lot, you won't build up your supply fast enough.
Rise of the Blobs features some cute animation, challenging puzzles, and lots of options, so players of all skill levels and temperaments will find something to enjoy. It's free to download and play, and so if you're looking for a new distraction, it's worth checking out.
