[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Bloop’


This time the spotlight will be shining on Bloop, a liquid-based physics puzzler of timing and precision, because if the jar is only half full, you’re only half done! Funny how that works, eh? Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Ignite your imagination with a whimsical 2D liquid physics-based puzzle game by Studio 2SD. Experiment with valves of colorful liquid, create and move objects to transfer the substances to their designated beakers. Use quick reflexes, problem solving skills and imagination to conquer each of the challenging puzzles, all in the name of science.

Draw lines, unleash the liquids, watch as the jar gets filled. Yup, it really is that simple. Things like elevators and faucets in need of unlocking does add to the overall complexity however, as mentioned in my review all those months ago. Multiple colored fluids, each of which has to go in a specific jar, also come into play, ensuring that you’ll rarely be able to simply stroll through any level with but a few clicks. Since the game ‘only’ packs 42 levels, that’s definitely a good thing, because the last thing you’ll want after getting get into a groove, is to run out of content. Chances are you’ll be too busy keeping track of everything happening on-screen to notice as the [levels] fly by one after another, until finally reaching one of two endings. Yup, a puzzler with multiple endings. Groovy!

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Bloop still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s been out for a while (since April, 2013), so availability certainly can’t be the reason. Might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!

Bloop is available for Windows from the Desura, priced at $6.49 and without DRM.
