I think OddBlob looks fantastic, and Handmark have some excellent past titles backing this

Hi Everyone

We're really pleased to see OddBlob released!

On the subject of Platypus - that game is based on the original PC game created by Anthony Flack a few years back. OddBlob is a new title created entirely in-house by our team at Astraware. They do have a similar look - we're massive fans of Platypus - but this is the first time we've used clay for graphics ourselves. Check out more details on our Facebook...

We've posted a 'making of' blog:

Oh and Astraware's QA Manager PaulK is currently topping the leaderboard on both game modes. We know he's had lots of practice, but can anyone top his scores?

Was anybody else totally distracted by the hands in the gameplay video? lol

I had to watch a second time just to figure out what was going on in the game.

Yes, the black nail polish was a little distracting. However, the game looks pretty good, so I will probably check it out.

Saw this thread early this morning and picked up the game, and I'm SO glad I did! As the video suggests, the visual presentation is fantastic; I'm a huge fan of clay modeling, especially when it's done properly, and in Oddblob's case, it most certainly is -- this game is just FUN to look at. The gameplay is equally enjoyable; both the weight and movement of the character are spot-on, and the variety of gameplay elements keeps things interesting. The inclusion of a diagonal jump was an EXCELLENT move (har har) on the part of the developers, so hats off to you guys for thinking to incorporate it. The music is great, and the sound effects are absolutely KILLER, but the game does offer the option of turning one or both of them off, as well as allowing you to play music from your iPod. The settings also offer a tutorial mode, as well as four selectable levels of difficulty (I haven't spent enough time with the game yet to know how the latter affects gameplay, but I hope to soon). Exiting the game during play automatically pauses the current round, and restarting brings you back to that point with the options of resuming, abandoning, or going to the settings.

Bottom line: This should be your next purchase at the App Store.

Excellent job with this one, fellas!
