It's not Tetris; it's not Columns; and it's definitely not Chain Reaction.
Blobs has elements of all three mixed together to form an excellent new challenge for Psion5, 5mx, Geofox, and other EPOC32 owners.
Meet the Blobs: a cute group of little round creatures who like nothing more than seeing other Blobs of the same type. The Blobs fall from the top of the screen, Tetris-style, and can be rotated and placed on to a game grid. When enough Blobs form together to form a single group, the group will disappear, and the Blobs above will fall down to fill the space, possibly forming new groups of their own.
To make things more complicated, special Blobs called "Star Blobs" are also added to the game, and (depending on your game type) one or more will need to be included within a group before it will disappear.
Including special "Psideways" game play modes, which allow you to play with your Psion rotated 90 degrees to the left or the right (for right- and left-handed players) and which offer extra-large graphics, Blobs should keep you entertained for many many hours!
