With close to 4,000 5-star ratings and between 100,000 – 500,000 downloads in the Google Play Store, it’s safe to say Mediocre’s smash hit Sprinkle was a huge success on Android. A lighthearted puzzle game, Sprinkle allowed players to harness the power of water to solve challenges and help save an alien world from a cataclysmic event.
I mentioned back at E3 2011 that Sprinkle would rise to an “Angry Birds” level of success and I wasn’t too far off. Mediocre’s seen another success since then, releasing Granny Smith to equally rave reviews and now it appears they are back in the studio, hard at work on followup to the original game that put them on the map.
Yes, it looks like Sprinkle 2 will soon be gracing our mobile devices and although details are somewhat scarce, there is a new gameplay mechanic the boys at Mediocre are looking to introduce in part 2: water… even more of it. Apparently players will now be able to travel between islands surrounded by oceans of water, solving puzzles using objects that float (or sink) and of course, putting out those pesky fires before they cause too much damage.
As always, we’re more than excited to see what Mediocre will deliver. We’ve been big supporters of their work since before Sprinkle hit the (then) Android Market and we’ll keep our eyes peeled for further developments.
