Many age old classic games have been introduced in its conventional as well as modified forms to the AppStore. Though most of them have had to be satisfied with meager fans, some of’em like Monopoly, Bejewelled, Scrabble etc have been able to etch a mark. The latest app to find itself in the spotlight is Rise of Blobs with its unique fusion & remix of Tetris and match-3 games.
Our friend Mash, the marshmallow is trapped on the top of a tower. Waves of colored jellies are climbing up to devour him and Mash has only one way to escape. Throw some explosive fruits and blast their brains out.
It shouldn’t be that easy!
Yep, things get tricky here because a fruit can only explode the jellies of its own color and those that are close to one another. For instance, a watermelon can pierce only green blobs and when triggered, all neighboring green blobs go boom!
Swipe to rotate the tower in this 3D world and find the best spot to drop your fruit. Choose heaps of similar blobs to make longer strings and score more points. Just like Tetris, it’s Game Over for you the moment the wave hits the top.
Thought the initial levels are too easy for most’s taste, believe me, there is a reason why Apple had this in their featured apps. Choosing the best string in the least time becomes the game changer, once you’re a little into the game and you just can’t stop playing.
The controls are fluid and the animations are juicy. A large number of attack strategies are available like the coconut bombs, fruit hammers and dynamites. Coins, starts and gems can be collected during the play which can be spend lavishly on these extras. The game itself shows a wide range of variations with Normal, Star-collector, Timed and Skull modes and they get unlocked as you dive deep. Overall, this game is a must have for all those with a lot of time to kill.

A word from our marshmallow:
“Hi everybody! I'm Marsh Mal, the high fructose protagonist of Rise of the Blobs. Actually I dunno what any of that means, but that's not the point. The point is you gotta hurry up and download this game! Those blobs ain’t gonna pop themselves!”
