This is a cute game. Very addicting and somewhat frustrating but challenging and mind bending in a way it makes you think.

So this game IS pretty cool, I gotta admit. I was happy to get it while on sale, and if you buy it, you will be too. Well, happy that you didn't pay for it full priced. Around an hour and a half into the game, the puzzles start getting harder. And by 4 hours in it begins to be mindboggling. It is easy to understand what you need to do, but the physics make it hard to do it. Unless you like to get angry, don't buy this game.
This is a pain in the rear game. Not much difficulty in thinking a puzzle through (there really is only one way to do it, do or fail, and fail endlessly at times). Rather serious hand-eye coordination with balancing and controlling an unforgiving slosh of liquid in various forms. Some of the levels are so downright frustrating that I don't know who would abuse themselves to bother going for awards or perfect scores.
Its ridiculous difficult, which ruins the fun factor of something that could be ... well ... fun.
Visually its pretty wicked. The physics of liquids and the objects and glass ware is really neat. Too bad its an angry game out to harm your patience.
