I picked it up today as part of Best Buy's B2G1 sale, but unfortunately I don't think I'm gonna be able to get around to it until next year with my backlog.

what others games did you get?

I am about 6-7 hours in, about to start level 3.7
I've collected all 3 chests on each level and beaten each corresponding bonus level. 2 of the bonus levels were frustrating (mostly because you have to be perfect as there are no checkpoints), but otherwise are strong companion levels to the game.
I've loved everything, except the rocket controls, which I don't know, are broken or at the very least occasionally inconsistent.

I've played it for 13 hours according to the Nintendo Channel.

13 hours. That's pretty good.


I have an extra copy if anyone is interested.

My my, it appears I shall remain soulless for awhile. Thanks OP. Posted Image

Better late than never, my friend.

13 hours. That's pretty good.


And, remember, that's just completing the story and a few of the challenge levels. It could easily be 20+ with completion of all the challenge levels.

Do budget Wii releases not have Club Nintendo codes? I bought A Boy and his Blob new, unopened from Fry's and it didn't have a code. Did anybody else get one?

Only Nintendo published titles have codes in them. This one is Majesco.

Thanks for the quick response Dr. Mario Kart. For some reason I thought that all Wii games now had codes, but I was apparently wrong.

I started playing this tonight. Does it get better after the first world because I'm finding it rather dull and I'm kinda tempted to trade it into GameStop since it's eligible for the $20 off promo.

It depends on what you mean by "better"? The levels stay basically the same, but they get longer and more difficult. There is more variety to the puzzles and forms the blob can take as well.

Does it feel less tedious and slow? That's how it feels for me so far. Plus the kid is annoying with calling the blob. He's worse than Navi. Though FWIW, I never found Navi as annoying as most other people.

It never really felt tedious or slow to me, so I can't help you. I never really found either to be very annoying. How far have you gotten?

I just finished level 3-1 (doing every challenge puzzle as I go along). The game does move slow but I am enjoying the crap out of it. I really like the challenge puzzles.

The game never really speeds up, maybe just not your kind of game (although I would probably give it a bit more time, the new blobs might change it for you).

I'm going to play it a little more today. If I'm not into it by middle of the 2nd world, I think I'll trade it in. I'd like to give it another try down the road but there are other things I want to play right now and I'll probably never get close to $20 for it. I already have it on my On-Hold queue on Goozex so I won't have a long wait when I want it later.

Yeah I actually just listed my copy on goozex, Im not done the third world yet, but will be able to finish before I have to ship. Figure I can trade it now (750 pts) and pick it up again later for 10 bucks or so.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. I checked to see how much it was on Amazon and it's strange they no longer have it in stock. Same thing for Metroid Prime Trilogy. I have 4 days before GS' deal is up so I might be able to finish it by then.


I played some more tonight. Beat the World 1 boss. Got to the level just before the boss in World 2. I'm going to trade it in to GameStop. It's not a bad game, just one I can't get into. I gave it a chance though.

Some bad news if you were after Prime Trilogy, has been out of print since it went on sale for 29 bucks at amazon/best buy (according to amazon).

I got it during their B2G1 deal. Never thought it'd get lower than $50.

Finished the game last night, only did a little over half of the challenge maps. I kind of lost interest in the game mid-late world 3 and just stopped trying to complete challenge maps. Was fun, but just lost me. Overall tho' I am happy with the game, I didn't think the bosses were as hard as some reviewers made them out to be, the only one I died on a lot was the world 4 boss. (btw, it is back in stock on amazon for 19.99 if anyone was looking for it)

I played a little more and I just can't beat the 2nd boss. It's pretty cheap how you have to immediately get into the sphere or else you die.

Yeah, I toss it as soon as it starts. Trying to hit him is a pain though. I did it once using a pothole blob and those mines passing through it but I died since he attacked and I was defenseless. I'll be trading it in this afternoon or tomorrow.

Im sending my copy out to someone on Goozex in the morning. Got 750 for it, not bad for a game I only spent 20 on and got a good 12-13 hours out of.
