    NDS New DS Game Has Nice Bloobs

    Via IGn

    Developer Nibris has announced it is working on a new DS title called Double Bloob, an arcade action game that appears to play similarly to the Capcom classic Buster Bros. Bloob's action takes place on one playing field with the player at the bottom and multi-colored blobs dropping from above. The player uses a harpoon to pop the Bloobs, which split into two globs until they are a small enough size to be completely destroyed.

    As for your motivation, Double Bloob tells the story of a brother and sister team, Aen and Niua, who are out to save their dolphin friend Pongo. Pongo has been kidnapped by the Great Nasty Bloob. You will set out across 100 levels to rescue your friend, popping blobs and collecting bonuses along the way. Bonuses include dual-shot, a freeze item which stops the blobs for a few seconds, and a shield which makes the player invincible.

    There are also antibonuses, though, including slowdown (slows player's movement), no shot (blocks player's ability to shoot for a moment), and antipoint (subtracts points from player's score).

    As you destroy blobs you'll charge your super attack, which fires five harpoons at once. Shooting two bloobs within a second gives you double points.

    Bloobs come with a variety of skills such as vanishing bloobs (which disappear periodically), sticky bloobs (which can combine to form bigger globs), and rock bloobs (made of a harder material and more difficult to destroy).

    Double Bloob is being developed by Nibris, the Nintendo loyalists also working on Raid Over the River for the DS and Sadness for the Wii. Look for the Bloobs to drop in Q2 2007.

    Oh man, this one is just WAITING for the jokes to roll in, even more so than the Wii.

    So let me get this straight. We use the stylus to touch "sticky bloobs"? Oh god...
