    Despite this Puddle is an original concept, and it can certainly be addictive. It is refreshing to see a game this simple be able to grab a players attention for a number of hours. Enjoyment of the game will definitely depend on the player's ability to handle frustration as it probably could have done with a lower difficulty setting. That being said, if a puzzle game gets you to keep coming back it must be doing something right.

    This lack of mercy had us cursing the game, but it also made every completed puzzle a truly satisfying victory. [Apr 2012, p.87]

    As a puzzler, Puddle is a fine gaming–snack with great accessibility. Well worth the small price of admission.

    Two shoulder buttons to tilt the screen left and right are all you need to play Puddle. It looks neat, but Puddle is a little bit too much like a really hard alchemy exam. Too much trial and error for our taste. [March 2012, p.98]

    Puddle for PSN is a clever, affordable puzzler in need of some subtle tweaks.

    Clever and beautiful in places, Puddle's just too wet behind the ears to know when its players need a break. [March 2012, p.107]

    It seems as if Puddle might have been far more succesful in portable systems, especially in those with motion detection. There are plenty of good ideas behind the game, although the content falls short and doesn't justify the price. A decent game, but not outstanding.

    There's a lot to love about Puddle, but its better qualities are often drowned in a sea of frustrations.
