Hello fellow Androidians,

To keep the content update nicely, it’s time for a new Android game review. There were too many games to choose from, but i decided to review Sprinkle. Get your coffee in hand, sit back, and read on!

We’ll break it down into three parts :

1) Gameplay and story.

2) How much does it cost?

3) Conclusion?

Part 1 : Gameplay and story?

The inhabitants of Titan, a moon of Saturn, lived out their days peacefully in their straw hut homes – until space tourists from Earth crashed through Saturn’s rings, bringing a storm of flaming asteroids crashing down on the Titans. To combat the widespread fires threatening their homes, the Titans have built a massive water cannon. And they need you to man it!

Sprinkle is another puzzle and physics game, a bit like Cut The Rope and Move The Box. It’s goals are straight forward : use the water cannon mounted on a crane to douse the fire as soon as possible. Yup, in this game, you are a firefighter! Excited yet? I thought you would be.

Dousing the fires is your main, but not your only objective though. In nearly every level after the first five or so , there will be obstacles that need to be moved into a certain position, to make sure you can douse every fire in the level. Also keep in mind that every level has its own timer, so some fast thinking is required at times.

However, there is another twist. You only have a limited supply of water, so you have to approach each level carefully as to not waste any water you might need for another objective in the level. This might lead to having to replay a certain level a few times (as I had to do myself aswell) to figure out the right strategy. This all makes things very interesting though.

The more water you “save” to complete the level, the more water drops you’ll earn after completing it. Water drops add up to unlocking new levels further on in the game, a system we are all quite familiar with by now.

To illustrate, view the screenshots below :

Part 2 : What does it cost?

This game costs 1.99 USD and can be purchased from Android Market

Part 3 : Conclusion ?

Is it fun to play and even replay the levels?

If you like a fun, yet challenging game, this is the game for you. If you expect to blaze through it, you’ll remove this pretty fast. It’s an easy game once you get the hang of it, but I can imagine not everyone will like it.

Personal rating : 9/10
