De Blob is out, and let me tell you... it's everything fans of the painting-buildings-with-coloured-blobs genre have been waiting for. So put down that aging copy of Phlegmy Colourizes Pittsburg 6 for the Commodore 64. There is a new game in town, and it's every bit as good... if not better!
It also has one of the most creative game soundtracks I've ever heard... an entirely jazz/funk score, recorded by a live band, that changes organically depending on your in-level progress. The music doesn't just build and develop as you gradually colourize the game's monochrome towns... it actually brings different solo instruments to the forefront depending on which colour of paint you are currently using. Red? Saxaphones. Blue? Trumpets. Brown? Turntables.
The end result is a kind of harmony between gameplay and sound that I haven't seen since Rez. Also, "harmony" is a music word. That's what we in the business call a pun, Charlie. Take notes!
