UTV Ignition Games announced Mercury Meltdown for iOS and Mercury Hg for XBLA and PSN. It’s a remake of Mercury Meltdown Revolution for the Wii but for other platforms, which means other formats will enjoy those ball maze things with fluid dynamics and colours.
Full press release after the jump.
UTV Ignition Games today announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles the next two releases in the critically acclaimed Mercury franchise - Mercury Meltdown for iOS and Mercury Hg for Xbox LIVE®Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation® Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Modern and visually stunning updates to the Mercury franchise tailored for new platforms, both titles will revitalize the popular IP for its new and extensive existing fanbase.
Mercury Hg expands on the addictive qualities of its predecessors, crafting 60 all-new deviously constructed levels filled with hazards and obstacles while adding improvements and polish to almost every aspect of the game. The ‘Mercury Blob’ is still as mesmerizing as ever, moving uniquely under player control, changing color in order to progress through the level and dividing if cut by a protruding surface. While this dissection is important to solve puzzles, the real test of a player’s skill is the ability to navigate strategically through varying types of slippery objects and sticky tiles with the use of balance and momentum in order to get to the finish line with their blob fully intact. A scoring system with full online leaderboard support adds a competitive touch to an already engrossing single-player experience. Additionally, the blob and game levels pulsate and react to the in-game music or songs from the player’s library in real-time.
