Angry Birds has proven that any concept can be improved by making it colourful and putting cute faces on the figures. Physics games are nothing new, but Splatters takes this design philosophy and runs with it, delivering something that is actually pretty fun.
The aim of the game is to guide a Splatter; a viscous trail of bright fluid and have it land on the bombs in an area. Various means of guiding the creature, as well as various obstacles stand in their way; getting more and more complex as the levels go on.
The word for this game is whimsical, and it would indeed be a lot more boring if it were less colorful and cute. That may make me a cultural retard, but sometimes that’s all it takes. Splatters is a little bit disappointing in that the controls can sometimes lose responsiveness, which being the point of the game can be rather difficult to manage. Nevertheless, there are plenty of levels and the game also caters for competition between friends, which as we all know is the foundation of a good relationship.
The Splatters may be worth buying if you have a few MS points left; but really doesn’t offer much to make you have to purchase it right away.
