Rise of the blobs Robot Invader

After the makers of Cut the Rope unveiled Pudding Monsters a couple of weeks back, now it’s time for Robot Invader, the developer of the popular Wind Up Knight, to unveil a new food-themed game.

Titled Rise of the Blobs, the new game is a well-polished mix of Tetris and a connect-the-tiles game like Bejeweled. Your hero is Marshmallow Mal a – you guessed it – marshmallow stranded on a round tower, who finds himself under attack by a horde of rising blobs.

It’s your job to save Mal, by dropping blobs of different colors and tapping them to blow them up. When you match the colors of the blobs, you make combos and earn extra points. Sounds complicated? It is not – check the trailer out:

The concept is refreshing and offers a unique take on the well-worn puzzle game genre. The game art is bright and fun, and overall, Rise of the Blobs just oozes polish and attention to detail.

Rise of the Blobs is available now for free on Google Play. The game offers in-game purchases that let you improve your playing experience and complete faster the several game modes available. One flaw of the game we’ve seen in early reviews is the slow pace at which you collect the coins that let you buy power ups. Unless you make IAPs, you’ll have to go through many hours of gameplay to get the points necessary for some of the better power ups.

If you’re not put off by in-app purchases, head over to the source to try Rise of the Blobs.
