  • Better in every way to de blob- looks better, plays better, more variety and depth.
  • Go indoors/underground- subways, drainage areas these sections have 2-d platforming. More structured levels, must complete story missions to get thru 3 sectors of stage.
  • More variety in missions- multiobjectives.
  • 12 levels feature new gameplay elements like wind cannons, piston-jump platforms.
  • Blob earns new moves and upgrades by collecting inspiration points.
  • Upgrades include increase amount of paint you carry, boost number of lives, increase frequency you perform special moves.
  • Co-op mode ala galaxy, multiplayer versus mode.
  • Spring 2011 release.
  • Halfbrick does ds version set between events of two wii titles. Sidescrolling, 2-d, nemesis is Dr. Von Blot- Black’s top scientist. Comic-book style cutscenes, exclusive dsi minigame,
