Archer Maclean's Mercury – Consumer Guide

Andrew Fletcher's picture

The abstract nature of the game ensures Mercury is entirely suitable for any audience, and Parents need only exert caution when judging how appealing a tricky puzzle game about liquid mercury will be for their younger children.

Fans of classic single-screen puzzle games like Tetris and Puyo Pop might like to check out the other great PSP puzzle game, Tetsuya Mizuguchi's excellent Lumines. Mercury is more likely to appeal to the skill-testing fans of Super Monkey Ball or Marble Madness, as it requires considerable amounts of control dexterity in addition to the requisite puzzle-solving acumen.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Gamers should find the game as accessible as an abstract puzzle game ought to be, with no essential audio prompts or dialogue and a minimalist soundtrack that causes no great offence whether it is audible to or not.
