'Fluidity' (Wii) Gets WiiWare Release Date

by Rainier on Nov. 23, 2010 @ 10:25 p.m. PST

Fluidity, known as Hydroventure in Europe, combines a 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.

Players tilt, twist and flick the Wii Remote controller to splash and gush past challenging obstacles in Aquaticus, an illustrated encyclopedia. Players can unlock additional powers, such as the ability to freeze into a slick ice block that can shatter. Or players can boil the water and become a menacing vapor cloud with the power to shoot lightning. Players need all these abilities to conquer the dangerous chapters within Aquaticus.

Players face many obstacles on their free-flowing journey. They can win the day by defeating the evil Influence and its minions while navigating dangerous chapters. Hidden objects within Aquaticus’ pages unlock minigames that will test players’ skills.

Dive into the amazing action and incredible challenges of Fluidity for 1,200 Wii Points.
