I have the first sparkle so I was pretty excited to see they made a second one. But my excitement faded quickly. Its just the same as the first except the graphics are a little better,the power ups a little more powerful. If you liked the first one then you should try the second, everyone is different in what they like..

Once you pop can you stop?
This genre being possibly my least favourite genre, but being bored and wanting to try something different I thought I would utilise the free hour that BF very kindly gives us. This game is much like any other marble popper game, so the if you like the physics of this type of game then you will probably like this as a marble popper is exactly that, I don?t suppose there can be much variation on the theme.
As I say I don?t normally play these games so I can?t really comment on whether this is a better or worse game of this genre type, what I will do is just give some observations from my perspective.
The graphics were good and served their purpose and what I did find really good was that there was a ?colour-blind? mode which put symbols on the spheres so that if you couldn?t ?see? the colours then you could still play the game, I thought this was a nice touch to try and include all.
The music was good and there was a VO which for an SE game was not usual though for this type of game it may have been, it was however not that impressive and the ?acting? was not good with the inflections in the voice not as good as they could have been.
The sound effects were good and did what they were meant to with regards to the game-play.
The game-play itself was good and there were plenty of power-ups along the way that could be utilised to help with the game-play, this was good as it meant that you could move the game forward.
The game had five ?keys? to collect, in an hours play I had collected two of them and had got to day 26, as I say I don?t know whether this was good or bad as I have no ?bar? to set myself with for this game genre.
I personally wouldn?t recommend this game as I don?t normally play this style of game, but I can see the attraction and that it would fit nicely in to a collection for people who do play this genre. I am giving it three stars as whilst I wouldn?t purchase the game I did enjoy the hour I played but it didn?t convert me to this genre (I may possibly buy though if there is a BOGOF or if this is a DOD or COW.

Way Too Short and Easy
I loved the first one. After playing the demo for this one, I already have 3 of the 5 keys. That's WAY too easy and WAY too short. I won't be spending money on this. Sorry.

If You Loved the First One, This One Will Disappoint
Everything about the first Sparkle was magical, especially finding the hidden secrets, I loved everything about it, so I bought the second one without the trial, and that was a mistake I won't make again.
I agree with the other reviewers: this game is too short, too easy, and lacks the difficulty progression, so it is sadly boring.There are no hidden secrets which really disappointed me, and I felt duped.
It's visually stunning, like the first but the comparison stops there. This game will be greatly disappointing if you loved the first one. Not recommended.
