    Not for the colorblind

    I read a few reviews of Mercury Meltdown and thought I'd give it a go. The concept seemed pretty simple and the game right up my alley. The one thing none of these reviews said is that there would be some serious color p... Read Full Review

    The best puzzle game for the PSP.

    I really like puzzle games, and this didn't disappoint me. First, the concept for the game is really creative. How many people could think to make a game about a blob of mercury changing colors and oozing through complic... Read Full Review

    Much better than the first game.

    I insisted not to write this review until I had completed Mercury Meltdown 100%. That's all bonus items, top score, time limit completion, and 100% mercury on all 168 levels. And by god it was one hell of a ride. The fi... Read Full Review

    Incredible idea, but just too difficult.
