Summary

If you ever fancied a game where you play it daily, get stronger but never feel like you progress then Blon is for you. Blon is an endless runner built on the foundation of grind, you must play the same levels over and over and over and over to collect leaves that you then use to unlock abilities and passives. Depending on your unlock methods depends on how much grind you need to do. It’s a game that is fun to play so it has that going for it, I like the pixel art graphics and simple controls. Blon, as I say, is an endless runner but when you get to the bosses you have the ability to shoot and despite the stupid time limit on fights, the shooting is pretty good and a nice break up of the gameplay. But there is no way to sugar coat it, Blon is all about the grind, the ever-living tree giving leaf bonuses every four hours definitely helps but be prepared to drop hours upon hours into Blon. It’s funny to say but it is a good commute game as you can get a few runs in and slowly but surely get stronger and open up the whackier levels. Blon is a hardcore endless runner that has the grind but also has the rewards.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
