Mac game developer and publisher
confirmed that its forthcoming puzzle action game
is now in beta and will be released next week.
Recently announced, Enigmo is 3D puzzle game in which you must move streams of flowing liquid to destinations using mechanism like bumpers, sliders, accelerators and sponges. There are liquids of different properties like water, oil and lava, all of which must be channeled into the proper receptacles.
Enigmo comes with 50 levels, but Pangea has also included a built-in level editor that lets players craft their own puzzles. The company hopes that Enigmo will catch on and that thousands of levels will be available for download in the future.
Pangea Software is best known to Mac gamers as the company that makes monolithic action adventure games like the Bugdom series and Otto Matic. Enigmo is the second departure from Pangea’s past action adventure track this year — earlier, the company announced plans to produce Billy Frontier, a whimsically illustrated arcade-style action game featuring cowboys in space. At the time, Pangea founder and President Brian Greenstone noted that his company was channeling its development efforts into more modest games that could be released on a faster schedule.
Enigmo will require a G3/400MHz or faster, 128MB RAM, ATI RAGE 128 graphics or Nvidia GeForce2 MX graphics with at least 8MB VRAM (Radeon or GeForce3 or higher recommended), Mac OS 9.2 or higher, or Mac OS X 10.1 or higher. Enigmo will be released as a downloadable file in limited demo mode; unlocking the full features will cost US$19.95.
