Final Breakdown

Gameplay: N/A

Well, bleem! isn't a game... so it's not rated.


Graphically the games get a significant upgrade from their existing settings. But some slow down and incompatibilities may hinder it from achieving its full goal. The high resolution support is great, but the flawed full window support needs a bit of work to keep up with speed.

Sound and Music:

Slight improvement is made in the sound department, but nothing to trigger the world.

Multiplayer: N/A

Hopefully in the future, Netplay will be programed in.

AI and Difficulty: N/A

As with gameplay, bleem! is not a game.

Controls and Interface:

The interface and controller options of bleem! are simply some of the easiest and most user friendly interfaces anyone will ever see. Some extra features such as DexDrive support is great.


A lot of work needs to go into making more games work or fully working to the playable zone.


Cool tool to have, but it's slightly flawed. As soon as all the bugs are scrunched out, bleem! may soon very well replace the Playstation once the console years have passed onto the next generation, and as bleem LLC said, "bleem! is not a replacement for the Playstation console".
