Liquid Measure 2

Liquid Measure 2 mixes Pipe Mania, water collection puzzles and simple idea physics into a nice glass of flash gaming fun. The difficulty is perhaps overly easy, but the mechanics are clever and the professional presentation should quench your thirst for a half hour.

That game was fun, but it was a bit easy. Beat it in under half an hour.

I wish the music wouldn't stop then restart every time I beat a level. I've heard the first 10 seconds of the song too many times.

A nice, interesting set of puzzle mechanics! I'd be happy to see a few more gimmicks introduced if there was another sequel, but what's here is pretty fun!

Was playing this on another computer and think I honestly got stuck around level 21.. let's give it another go.

It's a good game, not too hard but just puzzling enough.

You pretty much have to throw out your understanding of water physics in order to play later levels of this game.

Water will fall through pipes.

also, water spilled from a container won't spill into a bigger container beneath it.

Yes, this is an inarguably stupid game. How am I supposed to solve math/physics problems if there's no basic respect for three-dimensional objects? Honestly that is outrageous game design and absolutely absurd. And a little infuriating.

I think you'll be wasting your time, looking for scientific explanations of a flash game. Despite the name and appearance, the game works more with math than hydro-based sciences. You have to ignore the idea that you're working with water, and think more about how much of what you need to get into where. You're going about it all wrong if you're trying to think of the objects shown in the game realistically. They're just there to represent something real, not to actually work the way they would in real life.

I'm stuck on puzzle 22 at the moment. No matter how I think about it, I'll end up wasting some water...

I agree, 25 tutorial levels is a bit overdone for a 6 level puzzle game. This concept deserves better execution! Hand me a level editor and I show you puzzles!

Archimedes, anyone?

I like the concept here, but the puzzle design needs work. I'd say about half of the levels can be solved without using all of the available parts. In general things are too easy, especially when there are lots of overflow pots and relatively few receptacles. The water splitters make things interesting and have a lot of potential for good puzzles, but they don't get used much.

One idea: make a level where the sum of the volumes of the receptacles and the overflow pots is greater than the sum of the volumes of the output jars. Otherwise it's too easy to see what needs to get filled (hint: everything), and there's too much leeway for which pipes go where.

Some other pieces that might spice things up:

• Forked pipes that merge two streams together
• An output component that creates a certain volume of water once it's triggered-say, by running more water past some part of it.
• Overflow pot-analogues that let their entire contents pour out once they're full. (Best if locked in place, or if involved in a water splitter puzzle.)
• Painting components that dye the water that passes through them, with some of the receptacles needing particular mixes of colors

Grant, for level 22, a hint:

You don't need to use any of the pipes.

Solution:

Put the 1-overflow and the 1-receptacle in the 2nd row, one of them in the 1st column and one 5th. Put the two 2-overflows in the 4th row, one in the 1st and 2nd column and one in the 4th and 5th. Put the 2-receptacle in the 4th and 5th rows, 7th column.

I agree with Buttons. Great for a few minutes of fun, but the puzzles weren't exactly puzzling.

I like that there was more than one way top solve levels.

For a game made up fluid based puzzles, the fluid acts in a stiff way, as if on a predetermined path rather than acting like fluid.

The water moves waaay to slow. The fun was solving the splitting and combining, not waiting 5 minutes to see if I got it right. Also, having the water level continue rising after the water falling from above had fully flowed into jar shows lack of attention to detail.
