This game is far inferior to the first, despite having great potential. The difficulty curve is still way too steep, with most timed puzzles feeling like games of chance rather than real puzzles. As a result, the game lacks the satisfying feeling of accomplishment I got from the first one. I will not be buying any further games in this series without a comprehensive demo. Once burned, twice shy...

Fun but too short
First of all, to people whining that it's too difficult: It's not supposed to be relaxing. Not every game is relaxing. If you're finding it too difficult, do like the game says and try different active and lassie power ups. My only complaint is that the game is so short! I beat it in a few days of casual play. The first Azkend seemed much, much longer. Please add levels.

Good update! Beat the game & enjoy replay with all the power ups. Would like to be able to play with multiple profiles. Wish the developers would revamp Sparkle so that on master & expert levels player could use Immortality with 1 other amulet, like this game. Sparkle doesn't let you move much with Immortality & you die pretty easily without it from mid game forward.

This version is more fun
Update: Thankfully the developers listened to the negative comments and have released an update that addresses most of the concerns. Some levels are still hard, but in a "fair" way. Still not as fun as version 1, though. Original Review: loved Azkend, and I understand that a sequel is not going to be the same game. But I expected better than this. The tiles are OK but not as interesting as in the first game. The game is much more challenging, but not in a fun way. Roadblocks on every board prevent the player from matching really long chains. In fact the game seems to be designed to make matching chains longer than 3 a rarity. So often there are no matches possible and you must watch a pointless and overly long shuffling animation many times per level, only to be left with a board with few chains, none of which help you complete the level as the clock ticks down. Will not be buying the third installment on faith.

Updated review
Thank you for updating this program. Much improved after the update. The first game is one of my favorites. This has now become my most played game.

Thanks for the update!
As of version 1.1.5 Azkend 2 is much more accessible with less stress over the luck of the tiles. The game runs smoother as well and my data is no longer being erased for no reason. Great update, this is now a wonderful 5 star game.
