    Do you mean it doesn't have pointed corners, but instead it has rounded corners?

    No the corners are fine, but the shape isnt square, it kind of looks like it has been squashed.

    I actually just got out my ruler, the width is greater than the height, this is a rectangle not a square.

    Thats a good catch! This is true, the icon appears to be a slight rectangle. As for the actual Blob PowerUp it is square in game. It can appear squished when it is resting on a track surface because of the forces acting on it.

    Forces:
    1) Gravity is trying to push down on the Blob
    2) Track surface is trying to push up against the Blob.

    (Note: this is a simplified example. Their can be many other forces acting on it, such as: powerups, other track segments, etc. :))

    Since the Blob uses springs to keep its square shape, the forces from gravity and the track slightly squish it because the springs can only handle so much force. This is also the reason why exerting excessive force on any of the vehicles can cause the vehicle to be misshaped.

    Hope that helps!
