A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia is a video game developed in 1989 for the Nintendo Entertainment System by David Crane. The game is a side-scrolling platformer in which the character and his friend Blob (full name Blobert) travel together on earth and on Blobert’s home planet Blobolonia in a quest to defeat the evil emperor. Blobert can change into several different items when he is fed jelly beans. A licorice jelly bean, for instance, will change Blobert into a ladder, while a honey jelly bean will turn him into a hummingbird. Most of these transformations can be remembered mnemonically due to a correlation between the flavor of the jelly bean and the item that results.
Fifteen years after the original NES game was released, Majesco announced another installment to the series which was developed by Skyworks Technologies. The game was to take place 6 years after the events ofthe first game. Despite being completed and scheduled for a release in autumn 2005, the title remained unreleased due to financial issues Majesco had. The game was set to feature 15 differently colored jellybeans and 15 levels. The touchscreen feature of the DS would have featured a map and helped manage jellybean inventory.
