Shiny treasures such as marbles, bottlecaps, and rubberbands, each of which change the sounds of the environment, are scattered throughout the puddle, encouraging the payer to explore and play. Quick and responsive movement coupled with fluid water animation, is designed to encourage the players to swim joyfully around the puddle. Bubbles in and above the puddle provide targets that pop satisfyingly when the player swims or leaps through them in the form of a raindrop.
