4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original but still a good game
For all of you who don't know, this is the follow up to Archer Macleans Mercury, which was available on the release date of the PSP. I was really excited when I found out they would be doing a follow up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meltdown of old games
This game has very poor graphics, would have been better on a spectrum or C64, not worth much money. Quite Poor.

This review is from: Mercury Meltdown (PSP) (Video Game)
For all of you who don't know, this is the follow up to Archer Macleans Mercury, which was available on the release date of the PSP. I was really excited when I found out they would be doing a follow up. The new version contains twice as many levels as the original along with the availability of upto 500 additional levels via download. One of the major changes is the graphics. They have changed to a more cartoon style and I cant help feeling they should have stuck with the original style which was better. On some levels, it is difficult to tell the contrast between the background and platforms due to the intermix of colours used. They have also introduced several new elements of gameplay such as different blob states. I was surprised to see some of the stages in the first world were quite complex and relatively difficult to master compared to the original.

However, unlike the original you dont have to successfully complete all the levels in the first world to open up the next world. If you can reach the highest scores, there are also bonus levels. If you like puzzle games which are a challenge, then this will entertain you but I'm afraid the original is still my favourite due to its superior graphics and simplicity.

4.0 out of 5 stars mercury meltdown, 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mercury Meltdown (PSP) (Video Game)
a decent edition to the mercury meltdown series, this was bought because I like puzzle games and the fact it gradually gets harder and more frustrating when u don't complete a level

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good brain game, 8 Feb 2011

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mercury Meltdown (PSP) (Video Game)
Very good game, even if it is not new at all.
I had the first one "Mercury" just as it came out and always like it many years after.
This is a good puzzle/brain game as it is a very good alternative to usual games from time to time.
Quite tricky though and needs loads of concentration sometimes.
Excellent value for the price now.
