Introduction





Fluidity is a relaxing WiiWare 2D physics puzzle platforming collectathon. You go around collecting Rainbow Drops (stars, jiggies) which open up worlds to visit, four in all. The gimmick? You are water. Released in 2010 by Curve Studios to mostly positive reviews, the game seems relatively unknown. It doesn't have an FAQ on GameFAQs, only some marked up screenshots showing all of the collectibles. Still, it's fun and deserving of a play. Despite the childish looks, the game has some of the most insane platforming challenges I've played.



This will be an 100% run, which means I will be collecting all of the 89 Rainbow Drops and 60 Puzzle Pieces. Fluidity likes to mix worlds up: some Rainbow Drops in the first world can only be gotten after you get the last ability in the game, so certain areas remain fresh. Unfortunately, for the OCD among you, this means I won't be completing each level to entirety in order. Most backtracking is just a level select and a warp away, so I'll cut out or speed up the most tedious of it. I'll be doing about 5 or so drops per video. After every world's boss is defeated, I'll do a bonus video showing off the playroom, and a collection video or two.

The seaside reuses music assets (not even a new MIDI channel), so these are links to older songs, but here are the appropriate tracks.

Fluidity also has a great relaxing soundtrack to go along with it, done by these excellent guys. I'll be posting cleaned-up rips of me sitting at the pause screen. I have some MIDIs that sound terrible because they have no instrument data. If for some reason somebody wants the MIDIs, I'll post those too. I've linked the tracks based on where they're found in their respective chapters above.
