Sprinkle Islands

JohnBSprinkle Islands from Granny Smith creator Mediocre is a follow up to Sprinkle, a physics-based mobile puzzle game that is as adorable as it is fun. Pieces of a giant stone are raining down on Sprinkle Islands like meteors, causing all sorts of fires to spring up. Enter you, happy hero, with your simple height-adjustable vehicle that spits water like a little fountain. Time to douse some flames!

Sprinkle IslandsOn the left side of the screen is your little fire truck, moving forward on its own whenever the path is clear. All you have to worry about is adjusting the water spout's height and how to use as little of the wet stuff as you can. Water doesn't grow on trees, you know. Tap and slide the extendable nozzle to aim, then press and hold the big red button to shoot water. Get enough water on each fire to put it out, and be sure to do it before any huts burn down.

Of course, things are never as simple as spraying a fire and moving to the next catastrophe. Most fires are in out of the way places; tucked behind stones, blocked by giant rocks, or hidden behind latched platforms. To reach them you'll have to play with the environment by spraying water to shove things around. Use blocks of ice to press buttons, tap on blue buttons to raise and lower platforms, and use convenient curls in the landscape to slosh water into every nook and cranny on the screen.

Sprinkle IslandsAnalysis: Sprinkle Islands looks and sounds like an easy game you can breeze through without blinking. Once you get a dozen or two levels under your belt, you'll realize that's a fallacious assumption. It's a game of precision as much as it is conservation. You have a limited amount of water to dispense, but these fires aren't exactly looking to be extinguished.

Sprinkle Islands comes with around 50 levels to complete spread across four distinct island locations. The water physics are spot-on, so when you do stumble through a stage and end up failing at the last minute, you won't be able to blame the game! Speaking of failure, Sprinkle Islands has a convenient feature that lets you skip a level if you can't seem to complete it. After all, this is a game that's focused on fun, not nail-biting puzzle solving.

Easy to get into and suitable for kids and adults alike, Sprinkle Islands is the perfect blend of creativity, challenge and unrestrained fun. You'll love every level and every crazy boss battle in-between!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

I played the original Sprinkle on Android for a while - it ended up kicking my ass pretty hard. Is there anything different (new mechanics) about this new game or is it essentially just new maps?

EIther way - it should be fun, although a little frustrating.

It is a lot easier to move your spout in this one.
