Mercury Slides onto iOS, Gives XBLA & PSN a Hg

Classic rage-inducing puzzler Mercury Meltdown is heading for iOS later this year (pictured above). Fortunately, it has been redesigned to be more accessible and should work quite well, especially on the large iPad screen. An entirely new Mercury title, Mercury Hg will be available on XBLA and PSN.

Mercury Hg expands on the addictive qualities of its predecessors, crafting 60 all-new deviously constructed levels filled with hazards and obstacles while adding improvements and polish to almost every aspect of the game. The ‘Mercury Blob’ is still as mesmerizing as ever, moving uniquely under player control, changing color in order to progress through the level and dividing if cut by a protruding surface. While this dissection is important to solve puzzles, the real test of a player’s skill is the ability to navigate strategically through varying types of slippery objects and sticky tiles with the use of balance and momentum in order to get to the finish line with their blob fully intact. A scoring system with full online leaderboard support adds a competitive touch to an already engrossing single-player experience. Additionally, the blob and game levels pulsate and react to the in-game music or songs from the player’s library in real-time.

Lewis Pollak has been a member of the Gaming Trend community since before it held that name, and they finally let him join the staff all these years later, probably so he would stop asking. His illustrious career encompasses such ridiculous decisions as quitting medical school to start a tabletop RPG company and briefly becoming a car salesman.

A gamer since the days of loading 'Hunt the Wumpus' and 'Eliza' from cassette on a TRS-80, Lewis enjoys card and board games, as well as video games. He enjoys the dying breed known as the turn-based RPG, as well as racing, puzzle, and adventure titles. He has also been known to give his life over to MMORPGs for extended periods of time.
