The Good: Bigger and better than the first, updated visual style is refreshing, accurate liquid physics, controls are responsive and fluid, many levels and rewards to unlock
The Bad: Some sort of USB tilt sensor would have been nice.
There’s something about rolling a blob of mercury around that just makes things so fun and refreshing, and that’s exactly what Meltdown is. With the first game not being so good Meltdown revives the series and brings a unique experience along the way. With a better graphic style, better physics, and more levels Meltdown will give you hours upon hours of dangerous fun! If you don’t know what the heck this game is you basically roll a blob of mercury around by tilting the level.
You can solve the puzzles by splitting the mercury and turning it different colors, and mixing them, to unlock doors, you have obstacles, you can pick up extra rewards, you can make your mercury more solid or fluid, you have enemies in your way etc. The best part about this game is that not one level is the same, and there are a ton to unlock and explore. Some can be a breeze and some can be hair tearingly difficult. This game is also easy to pick up and play for short periods of time or for hours upon hours. There’s really nothing bad to say here except that some levels are a bit too hard but that could just be me personally. If you hated the first or were turned off by the bad reviews pick this up and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
