  • Summary: Welcome to I-Fluid, the PC game that will plunge you into an exciting and unprecedented physics-based adventure where the smallest and most common object can become your worst enemy. In I-Fluid you will experience our everyday life from the eyes of a drop of water! Just imagine escaping a generous breakfast while avoiding absorbing tablecloth, breads and cakes scattered all around; to cross all sort of vegetables cooking in a frying pan without vaporizing yourself; to face thirsty cockroaches and make your way through a Mexican party or to find your way in a pitch black kitchen only illuminated by a firefly passing by. Many other original and exciting situations like this await you. So look out for vegetables and fruits that can regenerate you with water and be ready to jump, cling on walls and even control humid objects to accomplish various objectives. [Steam] Expand

  1. I-Fluid is a very good puzzle and platforming game. Its first approach is very interesting, as the development of most of the missions, which will make thinks very difficult for us more than twice.
  2. An ingenious concept and fun to play but not without its faults.
  3. Cute but confusing physicsy puzzles for you. [Feb 2009, p.74]
  4. Pleasant trip of water drop to the household filled with traps with a great physics engine surprisingly lets you enjoy the laws of gravity. [May 2009]
  5. A charming indie outing. [Mar 2009, p.72]

    This game is a very unique puzzle game where you control a droplet of water and must move around this giant world. With a decent physics engine and some innovative puzzles, I would recommend this game to fans of the genre. Expand

    I like this game because:
    1. It's the best 3rd person platformer i've ever played.(including mario and sonic)
    2. It makes me smile in that
    same improbable way as World of Goo.
    3. Super-Duper sound design.

    Though occasionally thoroughly frustrating and confusing, i-Fluid's truly ingenious concept and sound gameplay mechanics prevent it from becoming dead in the water. Expand

    Neat graphics and physics. I appreciate that game makers are experimenting more with gaming concepts. However, I find this game to be pretty dry (no pun intended) and unexciting. There's just not alot of 'character' to your water droplet; and saltine crackers and notebook paper and potato chips just don't really make good antagonists / hazards. Expand

    This game is a perfect example of how important skilled level designers are. The concept is great: you have to guide a drop of water through realistic household environments. The problems start right after the tutorial though with abysmal level design, grating French rap, trial-and-error gameplay, and eventually mindboggling puzzles (why do I need a calculator + pen & paper for a physics-based platformer?).

    There are plenty of other indie platformers, physics-based puzzle games, and eye candy generators that are 10x better on steam. Don't bother with this.
