Who remembers the Psygnosis classic, Globdule, on the Amiga? It was a cavern-based collect 'em up which saw you controlling a floppy purple blob who could stick to almost anything! I'm a big fan of that game, and when I saw the abbreviated filename of this game I thought someone had finally made a sequel! Alas, it proved not to be the case, for, whilst also a platform game, this one is a little know oddity from the early 80's. Despite what the title screen says, Super Glob is a one player game (the two-player mode just sees the players take turns). It's your job to guide a blue blob called Toby around the single-screen stages to collect food, which includes standard game food such as strawberries, grapes, and even hunks of meat! The food has of course been sprinkled liberally all around the platforms on each screen. As you might expect, being a 'glob', Toby lacks the limbs to use ladders, so he can't reach other platforms that way. He instead has to rely on the handily-located elevators which he can summon to his current platform by pressing one of the buttons nearby.
worse games to spend ten minutes than
trying out this one.
