Meltdown's Second Chance

GIN
9 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Puzzle games in which the level is controlled instead of the object have been hitting it big with the Wii lately, but not everyone gets it as right as, say, Marble Mania did. Case in point is Ignition Entertainment's Mercury Meltdown Revolution. This game was originally thought up for the PSP, and in the midst of their thinking, Ignition developers had hoped to create a game that was controlled by tilting the PSP itself in various directions, which would thus navigate...

  • Conclusion: These couple of criticisms can’t hide the fact that this is an outstanding game, with a real old school charm right at its heart. Those of us who loved some of the classic games of old will immediately warm to the familiar play and game structure of Mercury Revolution. Although you will need to be a real maze or puzzle game fanatic to get full value out of it, anyone should be able to find plenty of casual play from the variety of levels.

  • Excerpt: Originally released for the PSP in 2005, Mercury Meltdown was an innovative puzzler that just didn’t seem at home on Sony’s portable console. It was as if something was missing. Well, fast forward to 2007 and Ignition Entertainment releases a home console version of the game on the Nintendo Wii, aptly titled Mercury Meltdown Revolution.

  • Excerpt: Many years ago I played a game called Mable Madness on the Amiga computer. It was a game where you controlled a marble through a series of mazes with various obstacles meant to either do harm to your marble or at least make it more difficult for it to finish the course. In many ways Marble Madness was the spiritual predecessor to games like Super Monkey Ball and a new game for the Wii called Mercury Meltdown Revolution.

  • Summary: This is easily the best deal on the Wii so far.
  • Pros: Big variety in level design, Cheap!, Great challenges, Wii remote tilting works great

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Just tilt, roll and go. Like looking out for the quiet ones though, it's often the simple things that require the most work. It's deceptively simple - a great game to while away those summer hours when you just want to play without thinking too hard.
