Puddle Will Make The Most Of The Wii U’s Hardware
Neko Entertainment, developers of the upcoming Nintendo eShop game Puddle, have been making a splash this week by speaking of the hard work they’ve put in making vast improvements to accomplish the best version of the game yet on Wii U. Puddle is already available on the Playstation Network, Playstation Vita and Xbox Live Arcade and once the Wii U started flashing on the radar Neko Entertainment saw it as a perfect home for the game.
The developers have confirmed that after getting to grips with the Wii U hardware they found they could get “very good performances” out of the console meaning Puddle will run at a full 1080p and 60fps. Interestingly the developers have also made it possible to play the game on the GamePad without losing the impressive 60fps should you need to take it off the big screen due to pesky family members wanting to watch the Eastenders omnibus…
Controls are another area that will set the game apart on the Wii U. The GamePad’s built in accelerometer will be utilised giving the game a very fluid feel while the ZL and ZR trigger buttons and the Left Analogue Stick are also used. Also of note is the fact Neko Entertainment have looked into the levels players used the “Whine and Skip” feature in other adaptations of the game such as the PSVita version where players were given the option to skip the level should it be proving too difficult. This has been adjusted to alleviate the frustration many players felt.
Have you played Puddle before? Are you looking forward to giving it a go on the Wii U? Let us know what you think!
