Summary: Downstream Panic is like a lemmings/puzzle cross-over with cuteness factor. The story goes that fish living in the sea were suddenly swiped up into the air. It is the player's job to return as many sea-critters to the waters as soon as possible. There are three levels within the game. However, two of them are not accessible at the time and need to be unlocked. The puzzles themselves range from very easy to very hard as the levels continue.
Summary: The Good: Charming graphics, addictive puzzle design, 80 levels keeps you busy The Bad: Physics are off, gets too hard too quick When you first boot up Downstream Panic! you'll get the feeling of Lemmings, LocoRoco, and Worms all in one breath. You have to help the fish make it back to the ocean safely by using various tools throughout the game.
Summary: I just picked up this title over the weekend, and I must say I'm finding it very enjoyable -- much more so than Patapan. The controls are intuitive, and the level designs and challenges clever. Basically your goal is to guide the flow of water from the top of the screen so a school of fish can get back to the sea at the bottom of the screen.
Summary: The premise of this puzzle game is simple: A wind has swept schools of fish from the river and you have to navigate the swimming critters through various obstacles and back into the water. In fact, think of the fish as mindless creatures like those you find in Lemmings, and the concept of guiding the lost ones like in LocoRoco, with almost identical cute sounding animal cries, and you can imagine the ingenuity of this game.
