    Nintendo announced a new WiiWare puzzle game that utilizes physics to solve puzzles. The press release is below.
    "Nintendo’s Fluidity combines an amazing physics engine that realistically models flowing water with innovative puzzle game play. Using the three forms of water — liquid, ice and cloud — players will solve challenging puzzles across multiple chapters of an illustrated magical book called Aquaticus. The game offers detailed tutorials that introduce basic game mechanics, but the complexity quickly ramps up as special powers are acquired and enemies are introduced, testing players’ reflexes and ingenuity.

    Daaaaaaamn. That's got a good physics engine. Did they steal it from World of Sand or that one iPhone app?

    Now that does look good! Very much like a indie game actually, makes me think that someone sent it to them.

    I can guess that throughout the game you can freeze water, melt ice and heat water to make steam. Those sort of elements hark back to Amiga platform puzzlers.

    It's way closer to Phun/Algodoo than the normal Sand games.



    Do want.

    Yar, but I generally prefer Phun/Algodoo because it's more than a particle simulator, it lets you make actual shapes and gears and motors and stuff as well.

    Well said Hadrian, you kinda had something of the sort in Morph, an Amiga platformer, if I remember correctly!

    My thoughts exactly. A game like this is much better suited for a handheld.

    That looks totally awesome. I guess this is Nintendo's answer to LocoRoco?

    Meh. It looks neat, but better suited to a phone or something.

    Seems like a nice game to relax to. Did they make this for the ipod touch, this seems like a game that would be perfect for it.
