Extreme Blob Escape is a free platformer game created by AsterPeth. The objective of the game is to use directional jumps of varying velocities to get a blob up through a platform course. Extreme Blob Escape features many levels, blob choices and even music changes to prevent the environment from stagnating.
Classic platformers like Super Mario Bros come to mind when thinking about alternatives to Extreme Blob Escape. Still, with the game's more realistic physics, it's comparable to other itch.io platformers like Colour Shift and A Short Coffee Break. These games somewhat test the boundaries of what platformers can be, but the game with the most realistic physics and the highest level of difficulty is Extreme Blob Escape.
Platformer with a twist
Extreme Blob Escape looks like any other platformer at first glance. However, when the round jelly ball falls into the playfield, you realise you're dealing with more advanced physics.
The game requires you to not only anticipate where the blob will land, but also check if it's likely to roll off the platform. This makes the game more difficult than most platformers.
Extreme Blob Escape is bright and colourful without being intrusive or distracting. The playfield's colour changes as you propel the blob higher up.
Another aspect of Extreme Blob Escape that changes is the music. As you progress through the course, you'll be treated to various songs that change the game's ambience.
Extreme Blob Escape is far more challenging to negotiate than the average platformer. With other games, there's usually a way to correct your jump as you fall.
This game’s superior physics leave you unable to correct your jump and at the complete mercy of gravity. The course is designed in such a way that it's fairly easy to plummet all the way to the bottom, no matter where you are. If you're a gamer who likes a challenge, this is the game for you.
Many levels of fun
Laughter is sure to accompany any playthrough of this game, whether you're laughing at yourself or being playfully laughed at. Extreme Blob Escape is entertaining, challenging and will keep you trying to stick to the perfect landing for hours. It also helps that the game has delightful colours to keep you company while you attempt each level.
