A fun and simple puzzlerBlockAgent | June 30, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Puddle is a simple game. There are only two control keys to it...tilt the screen left and tilt the screen right. That's all you need to splash, spill and slide the various chemicals in Puddle around. The game is fun and casual. You can sit down and fill a free 10 minutes with fun or you can get really into the rhythm of it and play for hours. The gameplay changes enough from level to level to avoid repetition. I usually get bored with puzzlers after a while, but Puddle kept the levels fresh and exciting. I did have a problem where I Puddle would freeze during the initial loading screen when playing it in windows 7, but since I have a dual boot system with xp and 7, I fired the game up in xp and it works perfectly fine there. Not sure if it was just a setting issue of what.

Simply amazing. It's a puzzle game, you play as a puddle. Of coffee. Or water. Or weedkiller. And so on.
Each liquid has its own unique property, and all you do is tilt the screen, and let physics do the rest!
Great presentation style, the science-y background music is awesome, and the puzzles are good with a fairly reasonable learning curve, so even total newbies can master the concept of the game.

I'm a fan of this kind of games... I don't know why! I just am. A physics-based platformer: count me in! Because of that, i bought this game and i may say i'm happy with it. I like what they did with the levels; it really has that sense of a continuous stream. And it is challenging! And that works for both good and bad. At times, it's just so challenging it gets annoying and you just wanna stop playing and go do something useful. I mean it! I did that a couple of times. Sometimes the help is absolutely useless, and that makes it worse. It's not the most stable game around as well! So... Good idea. Good concept. It is!! But it seems bad executed!

I like platformers and I wasn't dissapointed with this one. Puddle gives a lot of fun and as for indie game it is very good looking. Also it provides something new to gameplay. You are not a hero, not a robot, not an animal or any living creature. You are fluid and by moving whole level and using laws of physics, You must end up in a pipe. Easy? Not at all. Try it and You won't regret.

Puddle is a very simple yet fun puzzle game. At times it is annoying but that might be due to my lack of skill at the game itself, not a pitfall of the game. The game focuses on a lot of science stuff (basic science anyways) and the goal is to get a cup of water through a level and into a tube, at the end of the level. Easy at first, just tilting left and right it gets harder when you have to go through fields of fire (and avoid evaporating!) to doing 360 rotations. The fluids even vary from plain water to antifreeze that kills plants (the ground you flow on!). The graphics are very vivid and beautiful and the music/sound effects add to the mesmerizing atmosphere. Getting this game as a gift made this even better for me. This game also motivates you to not just complete the level, but to re-play each level so that you can finish with ALL your water (gold rank). I would recommend this game if it's on sale (or get a friend to buy for you like me :P).
