Never fear, dear BlobInk (er, you are BlobInk... work with me here), you have the power to restore colour and rescue the girlfriend you never knew you had and who doesn't appear in the game(!) Simply race around these levels, touching each item as you go, and the world will once again be saturated in beautiful R, G & B. Don't fall into the water! You're an ink blob!
Don't rush it at first—you're a fast, smooth machine - er, blob—and if you're in too much of a hurry you'll go hurtling straight into the water, losing experience points. Once you've run through all fifteen levels, you'll be given a thousand bonus points and a chance to explore the more RPG aspects of the game: buy powers, gain levels and read the hilarious game text for those levels. (My favourite - "Level 4: Waiter. More than just a servant, you deliver. You deliver hard. With your trusty, trademark plate by your side, you realise you need no other companion in life. You also smell really good.")
Analysis: BlobInk has the potential to be a really interesting combination of role-playing and physics game. I say potential because at the moment, it's a kind of fun physics game, and the desire to beat the clock to gain rewards makes it eminently replayable (I've been bashing away at it all day in the hope of reading the Ancient Book of Blobland). However, there's only 15 levels, which are not amazingly hard to beat, and the RPG element consists of... reading the hilarious game text describing your level. It seems that BlobInk is an early version of a more developed game (Coming Soon: BlobInk Multiplayer!), which I'm really looking forward to because I think this is a great idea.
I have a couple of minor technical quibbles: there's no save point (although you'll find it's a very easy game to simply beat, as opposed to gaining bonus time points, you may have some good reason that you can't play for a half-hour sitting) and there doesn't seem to be any way of turning off that insanely jaunty music. Another thing is that when you beat a level, a big black blob obscures the game screen so you can't sit back and admire your handiwork.
Aside from that, BlobInk is at the least a fairly enjoyable physics game which has the potential to be a really unique adventure game. Give it a shot and be sure to leave any brilliant RPG-related ideas in the comments.
