Blon is a two-touch auto-running platformer that sees you controlling a blob of goo. You need to tap to jump over obstacles, then blast bosses to take them down before time ticks away. It’s fun, it’s fast, and you can grab it from the App Store right now.
The story revolves around Blon’s brother, a bad-sort who’s up to all kinds of mischief. You need to stop him, traversing a series of different biomes as you do. There are rocks, fires, pits and patches of toxic goo blocking your way, though.
Don’t let the simple controls – tap the left of the screen to jump or the right to fire out some ectoplasm – fool you. There’s a decent level of challenge here, and you’ll need to be on your toes if you want to succeed.
The game features an impressive skill tree-based upgrade system, different playable characters, a number of challenging settings and plenty of tough bosses to try and take down. And it all looks awesome too.
