I already expressed how I liked the first game for its unique mechanics; much like last time, you'll be handling many colorful particles, each with their own attributes, to create chemical compounds and fill beakers to clear the levels. You'll be drawing onto the field to lead the particles around, handling them carefully so to not waste any of them. It's still a great and fun mechanic that gives the game an edge over many other puzzle games, but the sequel here expands further upon the pre-existing formula.

There are new additions such as fans and vacuums that blow/suck away the particles, and are actually affected by your drawings, magnets that pull in the red-wine kind, and even a machine that reverts back compounds, such as dividing cyan particles back into red and pink. The levels are much more involving than before, and there are twice as many, it's such great fun.

I had previously noted how there wasn't a time limit, keeping the experience from being frantic, but I take that back; the game has you take careful steps in order to complete the levels, so it makes sense for it to give you all the time you need. I'd still say that sometimes it takes quite a while to push around individual particles into the beakers, especially towards the end, but that's not a major issue.

Overall, this is such a huge upgrade that the first game almost pales in comparison, it's exactly what I was looking forward to. If you're in need for a fresh and unique puzzle game, this is for you. Again, it felt like I was a scientist creating concoctions in a small lab filled with weird gadgets, it's very fun.
