Mercury Hg is a simple puzzle game that requires you to move a mercury blob
around floating block shaped levels and complete challenging puzzles as you work your way to the finish. Simply moving the left analog stick around will move the level in the same direction. This is what controls the mercury blob and it can be a tricky task to keep the blob on the floating structure. Hitting different objects or hanging on the edge of a level will break up parts of the blob. It's very realistic on how it reacts to the environment and does require some skill when trying to keep it all intact.
There's ton of levels to complete and each one is set out on a periodic table. You start of with 15 levels but you will need to collect atoms scattered around the levels to unlock more. The first few levels are fairly easy to complete but it's not long before your faced with much more challenging puzzles. Paint stations are on of the biggest features to the game. These require you to change the colour of the blob to access different areas. For example, when you pass through a paint station you will then need to place the blob over the corresponding checked block to finish the level.
The game also challenges you with primary colours when using the paint stations. One part had me breaking up the blob into two sections and placing them over two different coloured paint stations. I then had to combined both the blobs to make a different colour. It's a very well crafted game and makes great use of the mercury blob in different ways.
One of the neatest features to Mercury Hg is that you can add your own music whilst playing the game. Playing a track will bring the game to life and react to the beat of your music with bouncing bars in the background. It's not an option needed but it's sure great to listen to your favourite music whilst watching it beat away as you play.
There's much packed in Mercury Hg. After completing all the levels in Discovery Mode you can also play in a bunch of challenge and Bonus levels. For 400MP this is a lot for your money and it's worth every penny.
Overall, Mercury Hg is a well crafted puzzle game that any casual and hardcore gamer should try.
