Where has this game been all my gaming life, this is so awesome, my fav is level three where you can just blow everything to hell. I wish they'd make at least one last good one. Like an RPG or something with this, make your own blob, runs of weapons and armors, more enemies with unique capabilities, if it was REALLY good, had all that and more, and simplicity, hell I'd pay 4.99 for that. But hey free is always good too....😂 I'm saving an emergency 5 in case that ever happens. Please make more! I wish I could email the company or something I wanna get my ideas to you guys I think making this game more in def would be amazing, no offense but not a huuuge fan of the other two. But this one, oh my lawd it's so fun. I'm just worried when I buy all the weapons and upgrades that it'll be pointless, you should update it with more, playing on the iPhone 6s Plus, it's amazing. No lag or anything despite all the stuff that comes at me. 👌👍 Amazing game, this should re surface or get noticed, definitely a keeper (as long as updates w more content keep rolling 🙏👍)

Great Game

Simple controls, easy game play and very intriguing human setting for little blobs. The only hangs ups I have are the interior plot lines, which goes off of bad depression and social anxiety from hopelessness that concludes with suicide. Its a very intriguing premiss and I enjoy for hours of fun. But it does make you anxious and some what upset when the little blobs keep killing them selves instead of the monsters. But once you get over that point is is very interesting game play.

Good, Amazing, love it

This game is the perfect combination between horror, shooter, and humor. This game is great and is easy to play. These original ideas all work well together instead of apart. There is a problem with this game, however. It doesn't have enough arenas or levels. That's not all, they also end the XP system at level 20 and then you can't get rewards. That is the only problem however, and I absolutely love this game.
