Azkend 2: The World Beneath
Quite challenging but really original
The things I like, which I don't think any other review mentions, are that the tiles tumble across the board diagonally as well as dropping vertically when you make a match, and the levels where you have to make matches next to crawling bugs to zap them before they reach the top of the board. I've not seen anything like this in any other game.

azkend 2 the world beneath
again the developers seem to forget in not just teenagers that play games if it had a relaxed mode we would have bought the game as games like this ie match three with relaxed mode are few and far between limiting the people who can play the game and reducing big fish income on the free one hour trial we would have bought it if it had a relaxed mode

Azkend 2: The World Beneath
Beautiful graphics and pleasing music. Storyline same as many others - lost and find your way back. Choice of powerups to help master the level. Achievements and medals to earn. Love the hidden scenes, but have to beat the timer to complete them. Would have been a great game if there had been a relaxed mode.

great challenging game
The graphics are clear. The story line is good but not excellent. The woman sounds a bit relaxed. The only thing I wish it had was a relaxed time mode. Then I would give it 5 stars.

Great game when you need to relax !
I'm not a big fan of the match game, but I was boring and gave this one a chance, considering the good reviews. And I have to say that it's a pretty interresting game, with little challenge between levels. The music is also great.
The storyline is too classical fo me, I've seen that too many times !
Fun game, even if I won't purchase it.

Fun Hidden Object Game
Great game would love to buy but it has no untimed play.
Not good for the people that like to play and relax, shame because it is a great game.

A few variations on the norm
After a while, most match three games start looking the same. This one helps keeps things a little fresh by including a storyline with great graphics in between the actual rounds. There are some interesting variations in gameplay and different powerups to choose from.
Having said that, there's just not much you can do with this type of game. This one is fairly easy and short-lived. I don't see any re-play value so it's basically $6.99 for about 3-4 hours of play.
I give it a qualified recommendation.

Beneath its Predecessor - A Guy's Review
I am not really a big fan of Match 3 games, and most often find them as ok time fillers when I have no time or want to play anything else. But earlier I came across this game's predecessor (Azkend) and I highly enjoyed it. It was actually the first M3 game I ever completed.
This game is in many ways similar to that and they do an attempt at improving on it. To some they might have just done that, but to me they didn't. Graphics is good and there is more of a story this time, plus they've added power-ups and new challenges.
In the beginning this seemed very promising, but I soon found out that the game works to much on random and the time limit is strict. I don't like a game like this to be too stressful, but to me a time limit next to the randomness of it all just leaves me frustrated. There are no options to turn off or lengthen the timer either. In modern games I find that a bit lazy, as when I buy a game I want to be able to decide how I want to play it. That kind of ruined it a bit for me.
There are however power-ups to collect over the course of the game that both lengthen your time and make things easier. There is one problem though, you don't really know what the next board is going to be and do not know what power-ups suit it best. You have to do it by trial and error, and change it after failing the board. That was too tedious for me.
The voice over during the "cut-scenes" is not done very well either. She sounds very little engaged in the story, and was to me just irritating to listen to.
Now, these are just my personal opinions. I think that people who enjoy a little challenge in their M3 games would enjoy this one, and seeing that I am not a seasoned player in this genre I don't really know enough of what makes a game like this good or bad. It is however rather short (the adventure mode) and shouldn't last long for the better M3 players out there.
Surely worth to consider on a daily deal or something similar, or if you are really into M3 games. To me personally, I'd rather replay the first Azkend.

The game itself was challenging but the story line could have had so much more added to it. It left a lot hanging about where she was and what she could have found out about the ruins. I guess I would recommend the game as a challenging match 3 but for the story it could have been evolved so much better.
