Experience a brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle/platform game where you must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world. The player must work with friction, momentum, and the unique properties of each type of fluid and environment to send as much of each puddle past fires, rifts, potential spills and more. But watch out: the fluid motion is realistic! Tilt too quickly and some droplets are left behind; tilt too slowly you may not be able to make certain jumpsÖ or may simply evaporate away.

The winner of GDC 2010's Independent Games Festival, Student Showcase division, Puddle began as a project from six students from the French school ENJMIN.

  • A new experience based on physics and liquid properties.
  • Mix, shake, burn, make various liquids explode - or just let them flow.
  • Control fluids in still more amazing environments.

[top]Tips & Strategies

The only controls that you will use for this game are and if you are playing with a Sixaxis controller. You can also use a PS Move controller, but this guide is written for the Sixaxis controller. Your goal is to guide a puddle to its destination through different obstacles by tilting the game world. moves the world to the left and moves it to the right. The key to this game is patience combined with practice. You will want to keep a good pace, but also try to keep as much of your Puddle intact as possible.


Start off by playing through all the levels. Along the way you should try to get all of the trophies except Gold rush and Total reaction. Follow the guide below for all the other trophies along the way. Once youíve gotten all those trophies you will just need to finish the levels to get Total reaction. After that you will need to go back to the levels that you donít have gold medals on. This will probably be where most of your game time is spent. Be patient and practice and you will be sure to get these gold medals. Donít spend too much time retrying one level as you will probably just burn yourself out. Try to take breaks here and there and switch up levels if you find yourself getting stuck.


Gold Rush
Earn 48 gold medals.

You need to get a gold medal in all 48 levels to get this trophy. After you have completed a level you will be able to see what your time was for the level and see what is the required time to get to the next medal. You can look at this from the Main Menu when you hover over each completed level youíve done. The calculations for medals are calculated on time and how many bonus particles you have compared to the required amount of particles.

Here is an example of an equation that can be seen at the end of a completed level:

Time(01:23.000) - [Particles Left(050) - Particles Required(030)] * 0.25(this can depend on the amount of bonus Particles you have)

As you can see it not only pays to complete a level quickly, but it is also helpful to complete the level with as many particles left as possible. My advice to you for getting gold medals is to be patient. Play through the levels until you complete them and keep going. After you have played through all the levels focus on getting a gold medal for each one at a time. Start off by getting a feel for the level and knowing what you have to do. Next work on completing the level at a steady and quick pace while trying to keep as many particles as possible. Doing these together will ensure a gold medal. If you start getting aggravated at the level take a break and move on to another level. Sometimes it helps to revisit a level after taking a break.

Total reaction
Finish all levels.

This trophy is very straightforward and to the point. Finish all 48 levels and this trophy is yours.

Quack Quack
It's time for the crash test.

This trophy must be done on the Dionaea level in the Nursery. For this trophy you must first get at least a silver medal to unlock a rubber duck in the Laboratory. After you get the silver medal go to the Laboratory and press Select then go up to Objects and select the duck. Hit square to simulate so that the puddle touches the duck and the trophy will pop!

Every drop matters
Finish a level with exactly the right amount of liquid.

For this trophy you need to finish the level with the minimum required amount of liquid. You will most likely get this one without trying while you play through all the levels. I obtained this one pretty easily on Oil burner - Watercourse.

Make yourself scarce
Take the shortcut in the level Wastewater.

For this trophy you need to activate the upper lever by jumping while the gate opens to take a shortcut. Itís best to see the video for this one:

Green peace
Push the second bulb inside the sundews without letting the particles fall inside.

This trophy must be done on the Bulb - Nursery level.

For this trophy you must push the second bulb inside the sundews without letting the particles fall inside. The easiest way to do this is to get rid of a lot of your puddle in the beginning so that you can avoid touching any of the red spiky plants. You then need to get your puddle to the left of the bulb and then slowly push it into the sundews without letting any of your particles (puddle) touch the red plants. You should unlock the trophy soon after you touch the third bulb. See the video below for a visual guide:

The Price to Pay
Finish a level after at least 10 nitroglycerine explosions.

I did this on the Kieselguhrs Laboratory level. You can also get the trophy on the level before this, but I think this method is easier. See the video below for a visual guide:

Eating is cheating
Don't trigger any nausea during the Slightly acid level.

This trophy must be done on the Slightly Acid level.

For this trophy you can't trigger any nausea during the Slightly acid level. The nausea is triggered by hitting any of the orange objects. See the video below for a visual guide:

Keep your glass ball intact in the Tahiti level.

This trophy must be done on the Tahiti level.

For this trophy you can't let your glass ball crack at all. You have to make it to the end of the level with your glass ball completely intact. Patience is key with this trophy. See the video below for a visual guide:

Finish the Nova level by only turning in one direction.

This trophy must be obtained on the Nova Rocket level.

For this trophy you have to finish the Nova level by only turning in one direction.

I did this by following a laser in the beginning and staying in between where the lasers come out. This level is pretty long completing it by going in only one direction, but as long as you keep your rhythm going it will be easy. Once I started following behind the first laser I held the whole time. The only time I let off was briefly when I needed to get more momentum to get closer to the laser I was following. See the video below for a visual guide:

Don't drop any liquid from the tank in the 2011 vintage level.

This trophy is pretty straightforward. You canít let any liquid spill out of your tank. The liquid that burns up doesnít count as dropped liquid. See the video below for a visual guide:

Make sure your fire engine remains undamaged.

This trophy must be obtained on the Firemen level. You need to put out the three fires with your water while also blocking the projectiles that come at you. Finish the level without getting hit and this trophy is yours. See the video below for a visual guide:
