Sprinkle - game for tablets based on Nvidia Tegra reviewed

Review: Fun, addictive, realistic effects
 

 

A team of two Swedish programmers called “Mediocre” implemented its knowledge of PhysX capabilities in a game optimized for Nvidia Tegra-based tablets and smartphones. The game is called Sprinkle and will be available from Nvidia’s Tegra zone as of 26 August. The game is pretty fun to play, but perhaps the most eye-catching is a well implemented water simulation. You can learn more of the Mediocre team here.

In Sprinkle, you’ll be playing as a fireman on planet Sprinkle. The planet is constantly bombarded by flammable meteorites from space, which tend to burn housing of the natives. So, your experiences in handling a fire-truck hose will be key. Naturally, aiming is not always as easy and you’ll constantly have to find interactive objects from your surrounding and use them in order to reach the fire sites.

The amount of water in your fire truck is limited and there are plenty of obstacles. Water will of course be sprayed everywhere, and you’ll notice that resulting ponds are created and drained in a realistic manner.

PhysX effects are not only implemented on water, but other things in the game as well.

We gave the test version a spin, which has 46 levels. Fun factor is pretty high and the game is pretty addictive. Each extinguished fire increases your water cannon handling skills, but each next fire is more complicated.

Our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 P7510 Android’s Tegra 2 ran great, meaning no stutters or visible performance drops.

All in all, this is a game you should definitely try, as it’s fun and addictive. Not only that though, as the game does well to show what we can expect in the future.

You're kidding. You now review crappy GAMES to try and keep your Nvidia paymasters happy? This site is going downhill.

if you hate NV so bad why are you reading articles about them? if you dislike this site so much because you think it caters to NV then go read other tech news sites and quite hating on the NV articles on this site. I dont like ATI but i dont constantly write flames on every article about them. come to think of it people like you flaming all the articles are whats making this site go downhill.

Of course Fudzilla reviews and recommends a game that uses NVIDIA hardware being the biggest nvidia troll site on the web.

I wonder if nvidia paid those Swedes their salary with meatballs or money?

come on why so much hate ?
by the way I don't think this game is worse than angry birds
and every body put optimization for a graphic in it's products
I think it's time for other mobile chip makers to be a little
more active in helping developers to optimize their programs
for their chips otherwise they are gonna loose badly to the
competition no matter how perfect their products are.

Seems nice!

I wonder if it will be hacked into running on powerVR. And don't start me with that physx thing. It's obviously running a very light software version here, running on the cpu anyway. It's the DXTC that is the problem with these games really.
