Video Preview: Sprinkle from Mediocre [Exclusive]

Video Preview: Sprinkle from Mediocre [Exclusive]

Final week I was in LA for the world’s largest gaming convention in any other case often called E3. While there was a ton of nice console video games from the standard large gamers, I was surprised to see cell video games making a presence as well. T-Cellular was on the showroom floor providing up free meals and games with their Tegra 2 Cafe dropped at you by Nvidia and LG. Moreover all the glitz and glam of video games like Shadow Gun, there was one other recreation that stood out among the many crowd simply by its character and unique gameplay mechanic.
The game known as Sprinkle and it was developed by two (handsome) Swedish males, Dennis Gustafsson and Henrik Johansson, collectively known as Mediocre. Satirically, the game is anything however “mediocre” and if its 2 things I know, it’s hair - and video games. A demo model of the game was given to us solely for our readers right here at Phandroid and I have uploaded a complete video walkthrough of the sport (above) so you possibly can see the magic that's Sprinkle.

You’re on an alien planet and some careless house vacationers (most likely American) hit a meteor belt, causing flaming meteors to fall and set your villages ablaze. Armed with your useful makeshift firetruck, its your job to put out these fires on your once peaceable planet. The actual spotlight lies not in the story but the implausible water physics Mediocre has give you to resolve all of the puzzles and challenges within the game.

Gameplay is simple. Using water physics, you have to resolve puzzles by creating swimming pools of water, pushing objects and/or redirecting water movement to save lots of burning huts before time runs out. But really, that is easier said, then done. I can’t let you know what number of attempts it took me to lastly complete the 3rd level.

What it actually comes down to is the blokes at Mediocre have come up with a really distinctive recreation that appeals to all ages and genders providing something actually different in an app market stuffed with soundboards and jumpy games. There’s no denying the character of Sprinkle highlighted by the great graphics, sounds and gameplay. I can say, without a doubt, that this sport will shine when it's lastly launched within the Android Market, August 5th.
