In Sprinkle for Android, its your job to protect the alien inhabitants of Titan, a distant moon being bombarded by flaming asteroids. Armed with a gigantic water cannon, you venture from level to level extinguishing the falling asteroids along with all of the other neighborhood fires they happen to ignite.

Each level challenges you with a number of rampant fires, each on the verge of engulfing a Titanite's home. All you have to do is aim your cannon at each set of flames (sometimes for a few seconds) to make sure that they are completely extinguished. Sound easy? Well, think again. First, you have a very limited supply of water (ostensibly alien water), which means accuracy counts. Second, none of the terrains is flat, making it difficult to ever get a clean shot. And finally, there are levers, switches, windmills, and countless other movable objects that force you to get creative to get your water to where it's needed. So, as you can imagine, each level is quite a challenging brain teaser.

The controls are very simple. You can move your cannon up and down, and alter the trajectory of your shots. Other than that, you have to think your way through the physics-based levels. In some cases, you might have to use your spray to move boulders and create a bridge. In other cases, you might have to spray a lever to close a trap door. There are tons of possibilities in this unique puzzler.

Overall, we love the game play of Sprinkle. It looks great on a tablet, it's challenging, and it's fun. Plus, the water physics are incredibly realistic. If you're looking for a new physics-based puzzle game, look no further than Sprinkle.
