Any other "free flowing liquid", physics based games?

How to describe.... these sort of games involve manipulating droplets or streams of water, or other liquid types to achieve whatever goal the game sets for you. Many of these are puzzles where you need a bit of planning, but some require dexterity and speed, as timing is an issue too. I wouldn't say games like Pipe Dream counts, whre the liquid is fully contained... there should be a "free flowing" element to it.

Some of the ones I have and have played include...

Enigmo 1 & 2 $1 and $2 respectively
No storyline. Direct droplets of water, oil, and lava to their proper destination receptacles. Usually need to keep 'em separated, as oil absorbs water, and lava ignites oil and evarporates water. You build platforms and other "redirectors" to control flow. IIRC, the 2nd one is in full 3D (not just 2D that looks 3D), but does make it more cumbersome to play.

I used to envy the Windows Mobile users back in 2003 since this wasn't available on Palm OS, but later on, I would find it on iOS too.

Sprinkle: Fire Fighting fun $2
Neptunians need to shoot streams of water to put out fires that were caused by raining meteorites. Hurdle is you need to put out all fires in a level with limited amount of water. Sort of like a firefighting game with an alien theme thrown on top of it. Also has switches, etc.

Where's My Water $1. IAP to unlock each level pack, $1 each (AFAIK, there's up to 3 more of them)
Disney appears to have more of an AppStore presence concerning these puzzle-ish games (the Jelly Car games come to mind). Alligators need their water, steam, or green ooze liquid for showers, organ musical instrument, or to clear plate respectively. Swipe dirt to clear a path for water. Other liquid types like green acid which dissolves water and certain obstacles, switches, etc. I got the game for free from a sale, but I probably will end up shelling out up to $3 to unlock everything as I get there (at least you get at least 20 levels per pack).

Any others? I used to play Gloop Zero for TapWave Zodiac (dead Palm OS hardware), but you can always search for Gloop, freeware for PC which plays similar.

Feed Me Oil is probably he best one ive played.

Enigmo is the wirst. The game calls it water, but it doesn't look or act like water.

Visually, the water in Sprinkle is incredible.
