If you have a Wii or xBox360 and are looking for a cute, fun game for your kidlets (or you!) go buy "de Blob". Right now.
de Blob's origins are mysterious, but he rolled up at the right
place and the right time to be the hero that the Color Underground was
looking for. Music surrounds him and color energy flows through him;
with his touch Blob can literally make the world a better place.
Blob represents individuality and determination. Blob is good hearted but lazy. He is often late, but he always comes through.
Basically, you are "de Blob" - kind of a ball of water. You collect paint by rolling over cute little "paint bots", and using your "paint points" to paint buildings in a world that has been sapped of all color and fun. When you paint an entire block of buildings, the citizens who are trapped inside doing mundane tasks like taxes and stock trading are released into the streets, and you can roll over them to give them their original colors back that the bad guys sucked out of them!
That's a really short hand synopsis of the game (I haven't finished it yet, since I am a completion-ist and have to paint every.single.thing in each world before I move on to the next) but you get the idea. Blank city canvas, bright colors, cute characters, thus, addictive! Just play it, you'll see what I mean!
