Blush suffers from two things: simplicity and exploitation. In Blush, you control an underwater squid entirely with your mouse. The goal of the game is to attack enemies with your tentacles, collect their eggs (they stick to your tentacles) and return the eggs to glowing spheres to upgrade your squid and extend your tentacles. Basically, it’s all about the tentacles. The game simplicity is exacerbated by the fact that you can camp by a collection sphere and just whip around your tentacles to kill enemies and rack up points. The visuals in Blush are really cool. The neon colors and glowing underwater critters all meld together with great sound and music to create a great atmosphere. As great as Blush’s presentation is, the gameplay was just too rudimentary to last beyond the few minutes that you’re given in Blush. Bottom line was that when my time was up, I didn’t really care to play Blush again when there were other Blurst titles that left me wanting more.
Score: 5/10 – Rank: 9th
