Ignition has announced that a sequel to Archer Maclean's Mercury is coming to PSP this autumn, releasing some new screenshots into the bargain.

Mercury Meltdown, as it's titled, sees you taking control of a liquid mercury blob once again, avoiding all sorts of hazards and obstacles as you traverse a series of platforms.

The blob now has four different 'states' - Normal, Solid, Fast and Slow. Apparently this makes for bigger, more complex levels, and of course an even tougher challenge. But don't worry, we're promised "fairer game progression", too.

The game will feature more than 160 levels - that's twice the number in the previous title. And if that isn't enough, more levels will be available for download via in the future.

Mercury Meltdown will also feature game sharing and a wi-fi multiplayer mode so two players can take each other on with five sub-games. It's out in September.
