What makes SPRINKLE: WATER SPLASHING FIRE FIGHTING FUN! so enjoyable isn't its aim-your-water-cannon-just-right puzzles (though those are certainly fun), it's the water. It pools, it splashes, and it drains slowly, giving it a heightened sense of reality. It's odd praise, admittedly, but in a game that revolves so heavily around water, it's gratifying to know that the developers have focused so closely on the star of the show.

Having to buy your way into the third level/world is annoying, though, and makes the game feel rushed. (Technically, you can unlock it for free, but that requires a perfect performance on every prior level -- and given the level of difficulty with the puzzles, most won't be able to do that.) It's a notable gaffe, but otherwise this is a title that physics-based puzzle fans will love.
