Dive into Puddle, a game unlike any other where you have to guide a puddle of fluid by tilting the environment to the left or right! Play carefully taking friction, gravity and temperature into account, and by using the unique properties of each type of fluid (water, oil, nitroglycerin, molten lava...) in a range of original, puzzle-packed environments.
Conserve as much fluid as possible when crossing a variety of obstacles such as burning passageways, carnivorous plants and electric currents! Once you have mastered the challenges offered, why not share your achievements and medals with your friends via Leaderboards, and see who is the champion of physic-based puzzle games!

Puddle is a nice slick looking indy game.
The premise is very simple: Get a certain kind liquid from point A to point B.
The liquid itself can not be controlled, but you can manipulate the environments in such the way that the liquid will start to move.
Then you will have to navigate is through a trajectory with all kinds of booby traps and physics based puzzles.
It's a veryread more nice and calming experience, and the soundtrack and colorful graphics just make this a little casual game that is worth every single penny

I thought it would be, but I was wrong. Sure, at first the game fairly simple and even though obtaining the gold medal for each level will take some time, it's still a pretty relaxing experience. But then comes the 2nd half of the game and things get really tedious. Not in all levels of course, but a lot of them. It becomes a game of trial and error, and you'll have to retry overread more and over until you know what to do to get past that particular puzzle.

The concept and theme are quite original and the "story" binds the different chapters and varied themes together nicely. Graphically it's also quite impressive and the physics are nice and realistic.
The first levels might start off easy, but at least they are visually pleasing and satisfying. Halfway through however, the game becomes fiddly and the controls are starting to workread more against the player. It just stops being fun and instead it becomes a frustrating game of trial and error and nonsensical obstacles out of the player's control.
And whoever though it was a nice idea to combine zero-G levels in a game that's all about liquid physics, has no business in developing games.
