What do you get when you cross "The Blob", "Swamp Thing", and classic 90's gross fads?
One of the later Genesis titles, this game is one in a million. You play a sentient slime (you were a scientist, but who cares? It's blob revenge time!) who slithers through levels solving puzzles and devouring mutants, evil human scientists (like the cover, totally awesome screams), and more. It's a difficult game, in the good old school sense. You have your body mass that can grow when you eat or shrink from damage, and then you have your head which is your fatal weakness. You can directly control a pseudopod thing and "punch/grab" enemies and you can spit your goo (seriously, there's a sound to go with it)
Buy this game, you won't regret it, unless you're a crybaby which in that case, you shouldn't be playing a game before the 2000's anyway.
