Letdown from Azkend 1
As much as I loved the first Azkend, this second version is a major disappointment. The graphics are great, but there just isn't enough time or space on the game board to make matches and finish some levels. I'm only halfway through and having to play levels repeatedly to pass them. I rarely had to do that on the first one or any other match-3 I've played. I think more time to finish levels would help, or decreasing the number of different types of game pieces on the boards to help make matches might be another solution. But it definitely needs some work because it's just an exercise in frustration the way it is now!

Fun new elements make up for ...
Their best release yet, so far. Very clever new puzzles. Still great music and beautiful, engaging artwork. Their match three, puzzle, story games de-stress and recharge yourself, and challenge you at the same time. I have read the the "unbalanced" complaints. But I like the variety of new elements in the puzzles. Not just match three, they add more clever twists. I also enjoy the small touch of working the story line into some of the "find the photo detail" sections. These chapter breaks used to seem random, pointless, and easy. Now they are getting harder but with some story clues to lead you. I like that their previous games are games that I can finish, unlike the pinball games that require being a fanatic games master to get far into them. We will see if I get stuck later. Disclaimer: I haven't finished the game yet. Stay tuned.

Pretty, but boring
The original Azkend received a lot of praise. I tried it's trial version and enjoyed it, so I thought I would really like the sequel. While Azkend 2 looks great, I find the gameplay repetitive and boring. It does not help that often you will repeatedly run out of moves and the game will shuffle it's tiles, but even if that problem were absent I think I would still quickly tire of this game. This was a disappointing purchase.

Crying shame
I completely agree with the other comments regarding the difficulty level of this game. It is almost impossible to complete certain levels. This game could have been great but alas it has been ruined. It quickly stops being fun and instead becomes irritating and frustrating. It's a shame because the graphics and music are gorgeous. Save your money and buy Heroes of Kalevela instead. This game is such a disappointment! This is a brilliant developer. Maybe they can fix this. I hope so!

Huge letdown from the original
I absolutely loved the first one but wow, can you say Major Disappointment?? This new version is frustrating beyond belief. The power ups just aren't fun and you barely get to use them because putting together chains longer than 4-5 rarely happens. And when a tile matching game has to "reshuffle" as much as this does you know something is wrong. I couldn't out the first one down, quite literally. I lost interest in azkend 2 after about 1/3 of the game. It's just not fun.

with 2/3 tiles remaining (to eliminate) i hate the fact that this app flashes the ones to eliminate. This is an unwanted hint, very distracting and annoying since i have ADD. There should be an option to turn this unwanted feature off. Also, i am left handed and have to play in portrait mode so my hand doesnt cover several adjacent tiles thatcan be matched. great graphics - esp. since i have the ipad 3.
