All of that previous dousing of alien fires was just a prelude to this.

After making a splash with their last game Sprinkle, Mediocre Games has announced that their follow-up project is going in a slightly more old-fashioned direction. Get ready to steal back some apples in the most extreme way possible when Granny Smith arrives on the App Store this August.

When a thief on wheels starts raiding Granny’s apple garden, she decides to take matters into her own hands and catch him. Using her trusty speed skates, Granny will race, jump, glide, swing, zip, and smash her way to justice. This racing platformer will feature 36 “hand crafted levels” of fast-paced action spread across three different environments from barnyards to cityscapes.

Crashing also seems to play a big part in the game and if the trailer is to be believed, Granny knows how to crash in style. It makes sense though considering how important physics were in Sprinkle’s puzzles.

Granny’s mission starts this August on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches everywhere.

Remember Sprinkle? That super-awesome water physics puzzle game about aliens defending their homes from meteoric garbage? Well it’s just been topped-off with more content.

Mediocre Games has just released an update with 14 new levels. That’s probably about 3 lifetimes worth of gameplay, assuming one plans to aim for the maximum rating in each one. Seriously, getting the highest rating for the later stages in this game is hard.

But the real reason I wanted to talk about this has to do with Sprinkle‘s “controversial” in-app purchase option to unlock later worlds. Essentially it wasn’t necessary, as metalcasket mentioned in our review‘s comments. The feature has since been removed, but Mediocre has been gracious enough to offer up 6 new levels (in addition to the previously mentioned 14) to these early in-app purchasers. How cool is that?

Sprinkle is still just $0.99, and now features 36 levels (42 for the in-app folks). And there’s no time like the present to strap on that adorable little extra terrestrial firefighter’s helmet.

Sprinkle makes fighting fire with physics (and water, of course) a heck of a lot of fun.
