IMG Reviews Enigmo
11:21 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Today IMG has posted a review of Pangea Software's newest puzzler hit, Enigmo. This addictive game forces players to divert streams of liquid using a variety of tools. In the review, IMG's Zack Lipowski looks at Enigmo's gameplay, graphics, and sound.

Here's a clip from the review:

Enigmo is quite abnormal when it comes to graphics. Featuring options that are reminiscent of a retail FPS, Enigmo can and will stress low-mid range machines if the effects are not toned down. This is thanks to one of the game's graphical highlights, the real-time liquid effects. Water and oil act as they should, but I can’t vouch for the lava for obvious reasons. You begin to see the simple beauty of the water after you have an elaborate contraption going, filled with water bouncing all over the place, oil zipping down a slider and lava being boosted by a laser gun. The “real-time” part comes in when you rotate an object, say a bumper, and the water will react accordingly. Therefore, if you were to madly rotate a bumper left and right, water would be sprayed all over. Very cool indeed. You can further admire the game's eye-candy with the ability to zoom in and out, or from left to right.
Check out the rest of the review for much more on Enigmo, and be sure to download the game's demo now from Macgamefiles if you haven't already.
