Archer Maclean's Mercury has been specifically designed to take full advantage of the unique gaming experience offered by the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system.  Using the new machine's powerful graphics, processing abilities and the Wi-Fi modes, Awesome Studios have produced a brand new genre defining puzzle game which is quite possibly the most imaginative and compelling game to be released in recent years.

After a short spell in the training camp world, players experience a smooth learning curve as you work your way through each level from start to finish eventually unlocking the next world beyond.

Negotiate obstacles and hazards, solve puzzles, compete against ever tightening time and percentage limits, whilst avoiding all the traps and predators, and go on to finally defeat end of level boss modes to complete each world.

The game has instant pick up and play appeal with no instructions needed, and you can spend minutes or hours immersed in the game. However skill, timing, and dexterity are all required to navigate the 70 plus levels, spread across the 6 uniquely themed worlds.

Truly a games that's Easy to learn, hard to master, and highly addictive throughout !!
