Puddle is a little physics based puzzle game that snuck onto the XBLA early this year. Is it a damp squib, or should you be opening the floodgates to download this one?

Posted by Staff on Feb 16, 2012 11:26 (Feb 16, 2012 11:26)

Graphics / Sound:
Puddle looks real nice. It reminds me a little of some of the other big indie titles like Braid or ITSP- it has a simple but distinctive style that just works. It never strains the system, but it looks right, all the time. The physics also work well, and the camera and screen movement as you tilt is incredibly fluid and nicely integrated. The game has a number of different background and traps to mix things up as well, and they all look decent as well. In a crazy way, the water is probably one of the worst looking parts of the game, as it lacks a little transparency, although I guess that would have made it more difficult to see.

The sound adds to the relaxed feel, with some nice, soothing music that you can barely filter in at the edges of your consciousness, although it ramps up nicely for the timed boss levels. The water also sounds nice as it runs through the various gulleys, gutters and pipes. There’s nothing special here, but I can’t imagine the game doing anything different or how it could be done much better.
"Puddle" is a nice idea, but rather ruined by its brutal difficulty level. With a more forgiving difficulty level, this would have been a nice, interesting physics-based puzzler, but instead its super frustrating. If you’re a hardcore puzzle fan, then this is probably a pretty good choice. For any casual fans, I’d stay clear, because you’ll just get stuck early on. The fact the game look and controls so well will only add to your annoyance at what could have been!
+ Nice visual style
+ Can be relaxing
+ Good physics
- No story
- No multiplayer
- Hard
