“Something is wrong in Blobby World. A strange mist has descended over its five lands, plunging it into darkness and ruining the Blobbys’ party plans.
Only one character is big enough to solve this mystery and to save the world - Mr Blobby. Comedy king, style leader and role model for millions, Mr Blobby is ready to bounce into action, and this time he’s bringing his family.”
(Millennium Interactive, 1994)
