4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stuff!, 14 Jun 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mercury Meltdown Revolution (Wii) (Video Game)
Really enjoying this game at the moment. A simple premise, coupled with well-executed controls and well-designed levels make this fun from the start. Taking those 3 in order:

Premise: The aim is to get your blob of mercury from the start of the 'maze' to the finish, overcoming various obstacles on the way. Sounds simple because it is, and the game is all the better for it.

Controls: Only played this with the Wiimote. You hold it in two hands like a traditional joypad, and tilt it forward, backward, left and right. This tilts the maze, and moves your blob (or blobs) around.

Levels: Some strokes of genius on show. Lots of obstacles, including crumbling blocks, repellers, attractors, ice, travelators etc etc. Levels are very very well designed, some of the best I've seen. Clearly a lot of thought went into them. There are no issues with longevity, there are many levels, and you can always replay them to try to improve your best score.

One of the best features of this game is the fact you can split your blob into two or more smaller blobs, then move them through the paintshops, before joining them back together in different colours (eg blue + green = turquoise).

The last game of this style I enjoyed as much was 'Kula World' on the PSone. High praise indeed!

It should be good for the kids aswell, although all the different objects on a level might confuse the younger ones. The way the Wiimote is used means there should be no issues with young hands being too small to control the game effectively.
