Bug Fix + Russian localization

March 13th, 2014

Hello and thanks for playing Puddle,

A change in the code has created some bugs, that you've kindly reported to us and they are now fixed!
Sorry again for those problems and thank you for your patience.

Problems solved:
- Apollo level freeze
- "Divided by Zero" error
- Kieselguhr level liquid explosion at start

It should be fixed, but tell us if you're still experiencing troubles.

By the way, we added the Russian localisation with this update. ;)

Cheers,
Neko team

"A challenging yet elegantly simple puzzler."

"... ein echter Geheimtipp, den sich Indie-Freunde, aber auch Fans von Rätsel- und Geschicklichkeitsspaß nicht entgehen lassen sollten"

About the Game

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 environments. Conserve as much fluid as possible when crossing a variety of obstacles such as burning passageways, carnivorous plants and electric currents!

An original and well-made puzzle platformer. The twist is that you're controlling a puddle of liquid by tilting the screen - and it may be difficult to keep it all in one place. Failure can be gradual - losing a tiny drop is no big deal, but they add up throughout the level. The game can be almost as frustrating as Super Meat Boy - and almost as fun. I've encountered a few bugs - most are error messages, but one is a persistent crash towards the end of the game.

Don't be fooled by its appealing graphics; under the polished visuals lies a frustrating, slow and clunky physics-based platformer which unfortunately doesn't become much more interesting as the game progresses.

The general summarized gameplay, "get these things to the end of the level", is accomplished much better by other physics-based games like World of Goo or Mercury. Get those instead, and save yourself a headache.

I found this game quite frustrating to play as you never seem to have much control over your liquid. You control it by tilting the screen, but the degree of tilt is quite small. Levels are mostly about memorisation and trial&error gameplay.

There are some interesting ideas, where your various liquids do different things (such as a weedkiller working its way through plant life). A more patient player than I would probably enjoy it.

It is a fun puzzle game that involves liquid physics.
Each chapter portrays different scenarios with different liquids and each one makes an interconnection to the other in somehow. This makes an interesting story to follow.

The game has several kind of liquids, each one with different characteristics like viscosity and velocity over different surfaces.
A negative point is the lack of controllability. You can only tilt your screen to the left or right and this give you low control of the fluids.

Some levels can be very frustrating because you have to memorize the entire level in order to complete it. But that's not so difficult to do it.

There are very interesting achievements to unlock. The most difficult one is to earn all 48 gold medals. This requires you to finish all levels carrying as much fluid as you can on the lowest possible time.
