Excerpt: Mercury Meltdown is the sequel to one of the PSP's launch titles, Archer MacLean’s Mercury and this title improves upon the already excellent formula. Where the original Mercury opted to go for a very realistic style (or as realistic as a blob of silver goo on floating platforms can be), Meltdown went with a more stylized, cel-shaded format in order to make the game a bit more appealing to the general public.
Summary: Archer Maclean's: Mercury was a launch title for the handheld console and a pretty good one at that. Developers Ignition, up the ante and raise the bar with the sequel that offers a brighter look at Archer’s design
Excerpt: Portable consoles and puzzle games go together like the best of friends. A long distance train journey can be made all the more tolerable when you can pull out your miniature friend and start bashing away at some solid puzzler until you find yourself covered in gaming goodness. Sequels and puzzle games don’t go together so well, though. Look at Tetris, Bust-a-groove and Puyo Puyo – all excellent games but with sequels few can remember.
