Attention span: 9/10 Keeps you glued to your calc.
Controls: 8/10 A tad sluggish.
Implementation: 10/10 Original and entertaining.
Overall: 9/10 Definitely worth the download.

The author of this game claims that this is "one of the best RPG's ever on a calc," and I tend to agree with him on this point. Bloop is a well-written game that does rank right up there with the best of them.

The story starts like this: You are Bloop, a slime living on the lower continents who wants to get out and see the world above. The story is good, if a bit linear, and will always provide you with something to do.

The standard rule of RPG's still applies to this game: BUILD LEVELS! Otherwise you will find defeat at the hands of a merciless boss. Enemies keep pace with your character (a feature I'm not too keen on) to provide you with a constant level of challenge. Along the way you find people who help you out, teach you new techniques and make your adventuring life a little bit easier.

Probably this game's greatest asset is its graphics. Even though they may be a little bit on the simplistic side, they are still entertaining. I still get a kick out of seeing Bloop ooze his way onto the title screen.

All told, this game has a lot going for it. It leaves you with that I-can't-stop-playing-it's-too-good kind of feeling.
