Mercury Hg 

 

Mercury Hg is a fantastic game on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. This downloadable game has the players move around a blob of mercury. Paint it different colors, separate it out, turn on switches, and other play mechanics are incorporated. Leaderboards are immediately present when playing this home console puzzle game. After completing a level the player can see where they rank among all the other players. Hopefully you can do better than I did in that regard.

Mercury Hg has a very fluid look to it. There is also a technology angle to Mercury Hg. The menu screens and many of the levels have that technical, almost clinical look. Certain levels will bounce to the beat of the music. This is a really cool feature that has to be seen to be fully understood. If all your mercury falls off the level then you are given the choice to restart the level. There is no violence in Mercury Hg.

The music in Mercury Hg is thumping. Generally the tracks have a techno sound to them. There are also some rockish sounds. Play the tutorial because it will teach some important tricks that will be needed in later levels. It can be annoying to have it consistently stop you to explain something. But once you are in the game you can get rolling along. Pun intended.

The price of Mercury Hg is extremely reasonable. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this game on the Playstation 3. The six axis controller is wonderful for this game. The sixty levels in Mercury Hg are true gems. There will be additional levels coming in the future in the form of DLC's. It is my hearts belief that Mercury Hg is worth the money.

The controls in Mercury Hg are fantastic. The more bonus atoms you collect, and the more mercury you end with will increase your score. Levels are rotated around in a way that is similar to Super Monkey Ball. But Mercury Hg has its own separate feel to it. If you have played a previous game in the franchise you know what to expect. The difficulty curve in Mercury Hg is fantastic.

I had a blast playing Mercury Hg. Some levels are more difficult than others. I hated having to split it into two and then move them different directions to get multiple colors at once. Combining those colors and finishing the level made it all worth it. Mercury Hg is one of those games that has you activate your brain in complete problem solving mode.

I think it is wonderful that this franchise lives on. I am also pleased to hear additional content is coming in the future. Mercury Hg is one of the great puzzle franchises that engages gamers in a fun way. I tip my hat to the creators of this franchise.
