The Splatters

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I thank God every single day for planting me in the video game industry. I get to see and play so many innovative titles. I marvel on a weekly basis at the intelligent designs of so many video games. I never know what new interesting idea will cross my desk, but I am always willing to see it. The Splatters is an amazing Xbox 360 downloadable game.

Fun physics-based puzzler about flinging blobs of paint.

Common Sense Media
8 June 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that The Splatters is a physics-based puzzler where players throwing balls of paint around the screen. There’s not really any violence, though players may be tempted to anthropomorphize the game's googly-eyed splatters and feel some compassion for them as they are splashed against walls and objects (even though they don't seem to mind at all).

  • Excerpt: Microsoft Game Studios sent over a code for an odd titled game “The Splatters”. I had no idea what to expect, then as the game starts and it helpfully shows you what to do in this goo flying puzzle physics game…I have to say, who knew playing with mutated phlegm could be so much fun?

The Splatters Accessibility Review

ablegamers.com
30 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Xbox Live Arcade games are usually more miss than hit, often by a significant margin. The bad ones are often cheap (meaning both inexpensive and poor quality) knockoffs of more popular titles, the mediocre ones may use a familiar mechanic in an interesting way while the great ones are few and far between and you've probably heard about them already.

These little guys live to entertain and go by a very simple motto – “Life’s short, so die with style.” To this end all these colourful liquid paint blobs want you to do is help them blow themselves up with style. And they die. All the time.

Throw Goo At Bombs In This Experimental Playground

Game Informer
17 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Use physics and time travel to drench bombs in colored goo Graphics: Bizarre backgrounds serve as playgrounds for impressive liquid effects Sound: Not all the songs are winners, but a few invaded my subconscious after turning off the game Playability: Flinging goo across the environment to splatter into a liquid mess is incredibly fun Entertainment: The difficulty ramps up quickly once you leave the training levels, but quick restarts make it easy to be patient...

The Splatters (X360) - Review

VGChartz
9 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Ever wanted to commit suicide? No? Me neither, but evidently the titular creatures in The Splatters were designed with suicide in mind; they have no self preservation and their only instinct is to commit suicide in the goriest, flashiest manner possible, which for some reason awards heaps of points. In their lifelong quest to end themselves, the splatters will ram themselves headlong into walls, impale themselves on spikes, or launch into a pile of explosive bombs.

The Splatters

oxmonline.com
9 April 2012
  • Excerpt: If stupendous puzzler Peggle and the cute gelatinous hero from de Blob had a teleportation accident à la Jeff Goldblum and the common household pest in The Fly , then The Splatters would be the result — except it’d be totally awesome and not a hideous Brundlefly monstrosity. Indeed, the goal in The Splatters is largely similar to that in its peg-popping precursor: to hit the little round targets — they’re bombs here — until the entire board is clear of them.
  • Pros: + Addictive “just one more round” puzzle gameplay., + Cute “characters” in the form of the splatters; colorful art style.
  • Cons: ? How long before the inevitable iPad version? The game seems like a perfect fit there, too.
