Introduction:
A Boy and His Blob is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle platform in which players control a young boy as he cooperates with a blob-like creature to overcome various obstacles. The boy can feed the blob a variety of jellybeans, which are unlocked as the game progresses and vary depending on the level, which transforms it into one of fifteen different objects that can be used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. These include ladders for climbing, anvils to drop on top of enemies, holes that allow the boy to drop through platforms, and cannons for shooting the to hard-to-reach areas. The boy can also hug and scold the blob, as well as call to it to revert its transformation and bring it to his side. However, the boy will die if he touches any enemy or hazard, or falls from a great height, sending the player back to the beginning of the area.

Walkthrough:
The game is split into four worlds with a boss battle at the end of each world. Finding three chests hidden within each main level unlocks additional challenge levels, which rewards bonus developer material such as concept art and storyboards when cleared.

Explore each level to find the three chests. They will unlock a challenge level. If you see firelies they are a hint that a chest is near. Don't worry if you don't find them all. You can visit any level through chapter select.

In the Citadel level you will also need to find and release captured Blobs. The Worlds are:

  1. Forest: 12 Levels (Levels 11 & 12 appear after World 4 "The Citadel" Level 8)
  2. Cave: 10 Levels
  3. Blobolonia: 10 Levels
  4. The Citadel: 8 Levels

Show secret achievements

There are 21 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Complete all the challenges of the forest world

    When you collect all 3 Chests in a Forest level it will unlock a Challenge level. You need to Complete all 12 Forest Challenge Levels.

    Even though this is the first section of the game, this will be one of the last, (if not the last) achievements you get. Forest Levels 11 & 12 don't appear on the map until after you beat the boss at the end of World 4 (The Citadel).

    After finishing Forest Level 12, you will need to beat the Final Boss, before you can complete Forest Challenge Level 12 and get the achievement (thanks to PurrPleeHaze for the videos).

    Levels 1 - 10

    Levels 11 & 12

  • Complete all the challenges of the cave world

    When you collect all three Chests in a Cave level it will unlock a Challenge level. You need to complete all ten Cave Challenge Levels (thanks to PurrPleeHaze for the video).

     

  • Complete all the challenges of the Blobolonia world

  • Beat the final boss

    The Final Boss will appear after beating all levels.

    After beating World 4, "The Citadel's" Boss, you will be able to play Levels 11 & 12 of Forest World. When you complete Forest Level 12, the Final Boss will appear. You just need to beat him. Compared to World's 3 & 4 Bosses, I found this one fairly simple to beat. This was my strategy.

    1. Drop a shield bean. Dodge falling objects. Press to deflect energy balls back at Boss. When Boss is stunned drop mech bean and go and repeatedly punch Boss until he recovers.

    2. Drop bouncy ball bean. Dodge falling objects. Bounce to top platform. Drop a shield bean and drop down to ground when water level back down. Press to deflect energy balls back at Boss. When Boss is stunned drop mech bean and go and repeatedly punch Boss until he recovers.

    3. Repeat Step 2.
