That colourful blob freeing his people from the mediocrity of grayscale is back on the iphone, but this time round, it's a puzzle game. There are buildings where the graydians are trapped by INKT agents, and Blob has to make his way to the exit on each level while rescuing as many of them as possible.

You can either tap or drag to lay down Blob's path. The puzzle element enters in that Blob cannot cross his own painted path once it's been layed down, so you have to work out the optimal way to each exit. There are three buildings, each with a variation on the gameplay (the second building is all about speed rather than freeing graydians), and the more you play, and the more points you obtain, the more difficulties for each building can be unlocked. There are many different levels in the game though, so you'll rarely tread old ground upon re-entry of a building.

The game is very colourful and sharp, with great characters. The speech is all in amusing Blobby gibberish, and the music is very catchy. Unlocking the extra modes and difficulties takes a while, but the gameplay is solid enough to keep you interested.

De Blob Revolution is nothing spectacular but is a very colouful puzzle game full of personality. Perfect for younger puzzle fans.
