Description

Mercury is back, all new and in HD! Explore 60 levels of tilting tension, colour it, split it and watch the levels pulse to the beat of your own music. Can you attain the top position on the leaderboards and have the world race against your ghost? With the help of the ghost replays shave split seconds off your time and achieve higher scores. Discover the 20 Bonus elements and 10 Challenges as you explore the world of Mercury Hg.

History

We were approached by UTV Ignition to create a brand new updated HD sequel to Archer Maclean's Mercury. We took the core elements of the original game and added a clean and stylish look, stripping the game down to a pure action puzzle experience. A key part of the new design was tying the visuals to the pulse of the music - the levels move and reconfigure around you, backgrounds glow and react and even the mercury blob itself gently pulses in time with the music. We built in to the game the ability for players to play the game to their own music library and see how the levels react to their favourite tracks!

Features

  • Steer, split and re-merge the mercury blob as you guide it to the goal.
  • Levels move and react to the beat of your music collection.
  • Brand new clean and stylish visuals.
