In a nutshell: Super Mercury Ball Madness

0:00 I played the PSP version of this game a few years back and was moderately impressed. I'm hoping the Wii's motion controls can really put this puzzler over the top.

0:01 The Wii Menu screen for this title has a bouncing yellow smiley face over a bass jazz groove. Ten bonus points right off the bat!

0:02 The game shows a computer mainframe-style green computer prompt, then commences with a normal loading screen, then the regular "don't throw the Wii remote" warning. Weird.

0:03 Tutorial time. Tilt the Wii remote to tilt the stage, and your blob of mercury with it. The clock turns to a sad face if you're too slow. Awww...

0:05 Teleporters, pressure switches, etc. Nothing I haven't seen before, although it all looks a lot better on the big TV screen. Very stylish black outlines around all the major set pieces.
