The Glob is an arcade game released by Epos in 1983.[1] It is a platform game where the player guides a strange, blue, glob-like creature named Toby through corridors and up and down elevators in a search for snacks. An assortment of animals pursue Toby and fight him for control of the elevators. The player must avoid or stop them and eat a dozen different snacks to clear the 24 levels. A time limit increases the difficulty of the game.

The Glob was only available as an unofficial conversion kit for Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man arcade machines.

This game is also known as Super Glob and Beastie Feastie.[2]
