Mercury Hg PSN release date announced

Out next week.

Mercury Hg launches on PlayStation Network next Wednesday, 28th September - the same day as it launches on Xbox Live Arcade.

The £3.99 / €4.99 game is an updated HD version of PlayStation Portable games Mercury and Mercury Meltdown.

You complete puzzles using a blob of mercury. There are 120 levels, 40 bonus levels and 20 challenge levels. That's a lot of levels.

A DLC pack called Heavy Elements launches alongside the main game. A second DLC pack will launch soon after.

Eurogamer's Mercury Meltdown review brought high praise to the 2006 PSP game.

"Overall it's hard to fault, really, and I really hope it finds a wide audience," wrote Tom Bramwell in his 9/10 review.
