Note: Video review embedded below.

Few games are as happy to be here as Super Splatters.

Its delightfully tongue-in-cheek writing and happy-go-lucky characters are quite literally bursting with charm, flinging their jelly-like bodies around the stage before exploding into gooey cascades to the cheers of their insatiable audience. Super Splatters is so unconcerned with being taken seriously, so committed to making you laugh and smile, that it’s hard not to forgive some of its more frustrating parts for the sake of how much fun it’s having.

Super Splatters is all about skill in an environment you wouldn’t expect to demand it. Your goal isn’t to do good yourself, but impress the audience watching you and in turn earn fans to help propel you to the next level of splatter stardom. You do this by making an absolute mess, shooting your wiggly body toward small balls you need to cover with your explosive fluids in order to clear a level. The challenge is you’re only given a limited number of goo-people and balls are typically spaced out so as to require a lot of tricky maneuvering to catch them all.

For a game seemingly aimed at more casual players, Super Splatters has an abundant amount of depth in its scoring system and outrageously difficult level designs later on. Different shots activate stunts, the more of which you chain together the higher your combo gets and the more fans you’ll receive. This becomes fiendishly complex when you have to deal with multiple colors, required stunts, and an increasing number of spikes ready to prematurely split you open.

Issues only arise when Super Splatters’ somewhat luck based design begins to feel as if it’s working against you. As you’re required to clear every level entirely, it’s not uncommon to end up with a single ball remaining do to you goo somehow not penetrating a stack enough, or slipping through the floor faster than you’d anticipate. Later stages are positively infuriating at times, testing my patience with little in the way of direction, and losing much of the cheerful dialogue that made earlier levels such a joy.

Maybe that’s a bit of a baseless complaint though as there isn’t ever a reason you’re forced to play past a comfortable difficulty. Super Splatters is fully focused on giving you as much or as little a challenge as you want, so outside of completionists there’s never a forceful urging to push you outside your comfort zone. And that’s something I find really refreshing: a game so completely devoted to having a ridiculously good time that you can’t help but enjoy yourself.

Love the concept, love the graphics, love the stable framerate (at least 60 fps on my pc), love the game. It's colorful, fun, addictive, challenging and happy. If that's not gonna convince you to buy it: It has colored grinning jell-o blobs flying and splatting all over the place!!

Addictive gameplay + neat liquid physics + time manipulation = hours of time wasting brilliance. Great for 15 minute breaks.

The easiest franchise to draw a parallel to here is Worms, because both games absolutely refuse to be serious, even when your little squishy dudes are blithely hurling themselves to their apparent doom. Like, that red smear on the landscape? That was Kevin. He wanted to be a dentist.

Kevin? Wake up, Kevin. Pull yourself together.

Look how many Youtube hits you got.

You're a star, Kevin.

A star...

Still Playing!

This game is very addicting, and I cant stop playing! It starts out easy, but gets hard real fast. Hours, even days of gameplay availible. If you are a fan of puzzle games, or even action games, this is for you. Well worth the money.

Super Splatters is a fun casual game that reminded me a lot of Peggle. Why ? I think because of the graphics. They're colorful and there are lots of explosions, and the game zooms in when you set off the last fireworks pod. You also have to think about your moves.

The game has several gameplay modes, all rolled into one big mode. You'll be playing levels where you have to set off all of the fireworks pods, or have to perform stunts while setting these same pods off. Especially the last one is tricky but fun, because it adds depth to an otherwise simple looking game.

Levels can be reset quickly so if you mess things up you can start right over. And you'll be doing that a lot, trust me.
There's not much to tell really, it's all fairly simple. The goal is to blow things up while performing stunts, and all of that will increase your popularity. Sounds simple, I agree. But you'll see what I mean soon enough. Just give it a try.

Super Splatters is a fun game that definitely deserves your attention.

Really fantastic stuff here. It's a puzzler in it's own right, while still being casual enough to mess around with. Once you start watching the ingame replays of some of the better players, it makes actually doing the harder tricks seem more achievable. Really well put together, and beautiful graphics. Check it out.

The splats look like pretty money shots. Yay.

Fun and Fast Arcade Game, it has a nice learning curve and simple enough mechanics to get through the game, tho it can get frustrating when you are just not doing what's expected and one needs good deal of skill for harder levels. Its graphics are sharp and colorful, explosions are always amazing and the music complements the game quite a bit. Leader board'sadd something to aim to in freeplay, the addition of the videos for some of the best spot show some interesting maneuvers to learn how to beat some levels.

You need to get this game if you're even a bit interested in it. This is a hardcore casual game, Peggle has nothing on it. You're in control from start to finish and it's still impossible to get a perfect score. Seriously addictive.

A great and enjoyable game for some quick action fun. The graphics, even though they appear simple, are quite stunning and all the goo and particles fly off your screen. Amazing!

The level progression is a bit strange and it seems, at first, there is no real logic to them. First you unlock all stages and then go back to each of them to try levels on an increasing difficulty level. You also learn a lot of new tricks that make for even more awesome tricks, combo's and MORE goo and particles!

The game plays great with the Xbox controller. It makes aiming, changing direction mid flight (air strike or repositioning) and the time shifting a lot easier and more enjoyable.

Super Splatters is a really fun game. It may seem like a weird concept at first, but once you get into it, Super Splatters is extremely enjoyable. I do not know why this game is so underplayed.

This little gem is hilariously fun. With it's quirky, cute graphics and clever humor this game had me at 'hello'. Or should I say, first splat? With various stunts and combos your job is to clear out the pods of each level. Sounds simple, right? It isn't! The game can get quite tricky but as you progress you will unlock new stunts and combos to help you along the way!

It's a great casual game, especially if all you want is to sit back and disconnect from the world and just.. splatter around! I really love this game - it was a big and welcome surprise for me.

Fun physics based platformer, where you steer blobs of liquid around to hit targets. Imagine if Peggle had a more physics oriented engine and more aftertouch controls for your moves. Sliding your blobs around the level, switching directions, ramming them into spikes and making them spray their lovely goop all over the targets face is what should get you going. Other goals include having as high a combo multiplier by the end of the level, meeting stunt targets set out on the field or just getting as high of a score as possible.

Super Splatters is an odd combination of arcade and puzzle style gameplay that will keep you competitively trying to raise your score by exploding harmless little globs for the sake of the show. Your goal is to make these globs of goop fly across the screen doing different stunts and combos building up the highest score possible so that you can flaunt your score on the leader boards. A quick 15 minutes of playing somehow flashes before your eyes as you realize you have been playing for a few hours making a strategy and properly executing it for an attempt on the top score. The are different game modes if you'd like to mix it up, and it's an overall fun and solid game. It is easy to get hooked on it and get 7-10 hours of gameplay out of it, which is well worth the 10 dollars. You can definitely get more gameplay time through actively playing through all of the different level layouts and missions if you really get hooked on the game.

You can even record your gameplay ingame so that you can post it on the leaderboards for the ultimate boasting of your skill. It really reminds me of that type of competition you would get at the local arcade as you battled your friends indirectly for the top high score.

If a good mixture of arcade and puzzle games sounds appealing to you, this is a great purchase. Have fun!
