Mercury is a refreshingly unique game with roots in many genres. Mercury provides an addictive challenge through its simple gaming mechanic. Players “tilt” each level to maneuver the blobs of mercury, with various switches, platforms, obstacles, and hazards standing between level goals.
Puzzle elements include splitting the mercury into several colored component parts, each affected by the degree of tilt, in order to open gates and activate switches. The maze-like environments require lateral thinking in order to navigate the mercury from start to finish. The sprawling 3D levels require clever, yet hit-yourself-when-you-work-it-out solutions.
