Enter Puddle, a computer-based platform game turned XBLA game. In the game, players cannot directly control the existing pool of water, but instead they tilt the surrounding area (like LocoRoco) to move as much of the evaporating water to its goal. Each proceeding level changes the properties of the liquid and level design to increase the challenge and avoid stagnation.
