Puddle is a puzzle-platform game that makes clever use of advanced physics to let you move all kinds of liquids through different obstacle courses. While the idea itself sounds rather straightforward, the execution is certainly not. The first levels, using water as a liquid, are not too difficult and I thought "tihs game is going to be a piece of cake". But how wrong I was (am actually). Difficulty goes up steeply and the developers have really thought of all kinds of possible liquid and obstacles to make life ever more difficult. Water, oil, goo, fertilizer, nitroglycerine, all pass the review and all ask for a different approach. This keeps the game interesting, since the visual context changes accordingly to the liquid being processed. And since the visuals are really outstanding for an in essence static background, the developers have done a good job.

But after a couple of hours, my interest in the game diminished since I got tired of the trial-and-error which seemed to be necessary in some of the later levels. So I let the game rest for a couple of weeks, and picked it up again recently. Now I pick up some levels ad random and try to get more of the Steam achievements, which are a clever addition to the game. All in all, this game is a nice sideway away from any larger-scale gaming projects, but don't expect anything more really. If Steam reviews would have a "neutral" option, this one would get one. But in the end I give it a "thumbs up", if only for an original idea being well executed, with a lot of love for the project being involved.

Gameplay: 17/30 (interesting at first, but too difficult after a time)
Graphcis: 16/20
Sound: 5/10
Longelivety: 5/10
Technical/stability: 16/20
Personal appreciation: 5/10

Overall: 64/100

There’s nothing better than a game that takes a simple idea and runs with it. Puddle does more than that. It runs, drips and oozes its idea through almost every conceivable formulation.Levels characteristically take the form of a laboratory or industrial setting – somewhere with a lot of pipes and tubes. By tilting that scene left and right and letting physics do the hard work, you guide a volume of liquid through various courses. Along the way a multitude of hazards from furnaces to buzz-saws threaten to simmer and splatter your solution.That’s the sum of Puddle’s mechanics, but it’s how it pours this concept into dozens of different scenarios that makes it so engaging.The liquids vary greatly, each with a series of challenges designed around it. What really elevates Puddle above many other physics puzzlers is not these individual puzzles, but how they are cleverly threaded together. The entire game progresses in this contraption-like manner, adding a sprinkling of adventure to the proceedings. The only other issue is the controls. Puddle uses the left and right mouse buttons to tilt the screen in the corresponding direction, but there is no way to adjust the extent of the tilt aside from repeatedly releasing and pressing the buttons. Consequently, great care is required in timing movements; otherwise the liquid might accelerate too quickly and separate into smaller globules, usually leading to a slippery end.All in all, Puddle looks like a simplistic game – after all, you have to press only two buttons. But it offers so many diverse challenges that you'll be quickly proven otherwise.

This game was entertaining for the cost until a game breaking event.

After about an hour of playing puddle, it looks like I am stuck. Good thing the devs allow me to "whine" to get past the hard parts (bugs).

TL;DR Simple controls but unique gameplay because of the particularities of the liquids. Not only liquids so it diversifies the gameplay. Not for easily disgusted and non-patient people. For physics lovers. Worth 8$. I highly recommend.

Here's Puddle, a game I found during the Paris's sales. At first, maybe it's hard to decide whether or not to buy it. I mean, you only tilt the screen to the left and right, moving liquids, but this game is incredibly... incredible! So yes, this is a "I go from this point to another" game, but you don't directly control what you lead to the end.

Let me explain myself. Basically, you control a liquid by tilting the screen to the left and right (I think this game was first designed for mobile). Sounds boring, uh? Well destroy this thought right now. Not only are the graphics awesome to my eyes, but the every liquids are different and this creates unique and diversified gameplay. You have coffee, ink, lava, even a liquid that doesn't fall from the top to the bottom but... from the bottom to the top! Some are heavy and falls quickly, some are compact and stick to stuff, some explode... I couldn't even name all the particularities off the top of my head, there are so much! And I haven't even finished the game while I'm writing this!

However, people that are easily disgusted shouldn't play this. The body chapter made me slightly wince and I myself am someone that is not easily disgusted by this kind of stuff. The following chapter is the sewers and ain't really better. Also, if you're not patient, unless you want to start to be patient, this is not really a game you should be looking for. However, if you're ready to spend a chunk of your time on difficult levels, go on. The game offers to use "Whines" to skip levels but you know, I want to keep my honor and not use them to be proud to say "I completed all the Puddle levels"...

About being patient, some levels are special sometimes, and also harder. They usually are at the beginning and end of every chapters. There, you don't always control liquids but most of the time, there always are liquids involved. One time you control a souvenir ball where the liquid is inside the ball, another time you control lasers and need not to burn the liquid in addition of doing something else at the same time to finish the level... Consider those levels as introductions and bosses. I really like the idea.

If I revise everything, Puddle has reaaaally simple controls but the particularities of the liquids make the gameplay unique every time. Also, you don't always control liquids, so it diversifies the way to play. But of you're not patient and easily disgusted it's not the game for you. If you're a fanatic of physics, however, you should like it.
I really recommend this game. Worth 8$. Could've been 5$, but 8$ is alright too.
