  • Summary: Experience a brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle/platform game where you must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world. The player must work with friction, momentum, and the unique properties of each type of fluid and environment to send as much of each puddle past fires, rifts, potential spills and more. But watch out: the fluid motion is realistic! Tilt too quickly and some droplets are left behind; tilt too slowly you may not be able to make certain jumps… or may simply evaporate away. Collapse

    A neat idea transformed into a nice, little game. Agreed, sometimes it does get repetitive and frustration lurks around most corners, but in the end you won't regret putting some money and effort into Puddle.

    If you are looking for a game that will tax your brain without complicated a control scheme, then Puddle might be the one to quench your puzzle thirst.

    Simple but surprisingly addictive. [Apr 2012, p.87]

    As a puzzler, Puddle is a fine gaming–snack with great accessibility. Well worth the small price of admission.
  5. This lack of mercy had us cursing the game, but it also made every completed puzzle a truly satisfying victory. [Apr 2012, p.87]
  6. 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]

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