Fantastic All Over Again.
I was a big fan of the first one on iPhone, and again later when HD came out for the iPad. If you enjoyed either of the original versions, it's almost a given that this should be on your list to buy. While the story may not be necessary, it's a nice enough addition, and seems better integrated here than the first game. The campaign, as much as you can have a campaign in a matching game, flows well with the progression of pieces and abilities to unlock. Rather than just a random new tile, you're unlocking them within the context of the narrative being told. Again, narrative in a tile matching game is a bit odd, but I like how they made it work rather well. Additionally, where I found the first game to be a bit on the easy side, the difficulty ramps up a bit better in this version. Rather than finishing most levels with tons of time remaining, the new rules and abilities will have you pulling out more squeakers. Yet even with the new additions, everything feels right at home here... It's still Azkend through and through. Finally, the level of polish in the presentation is spot on. Not so overdone that the story or interface gets in the way, and while the file size might seem a bit high, once you start to play it makes sense and feels just right. All the way down to the flow of the in-game tutorials, Azkend 2 just feels like a very well thought out experience designed to be enjoyed. II may not be breaking a lot of new ground in the genre, but the ground it treads is solid and pleasurable.

10x better than original!
One of my favorite developers have done it again! I bought this without hesitation and waiting these years for a sequel was well worth it. I'm so impressed by the graphics and the gameplay. This would really look beautiful on the iPad and I can't wait to play further into this game.
