Lost in Reefs 2
If you have played Lost in Reefs 1 or Lost in Night you do not need to buy this game. Nothing has changed. The shape of the puzzles is the same, the power ups are the same etc. In fact I find it worse then LIR 1 because there are 2 of the puzzle pieces that are so similar its hard to distinguish them making play frustrating. Don't get me wrong, I like playing the game and play LIR 1 and LIN over and over, but this is no different. You do not need it!

Not as good as the original
Based on demo
I'm afraid that I don't like this one as well as the original. In that one you had access to all three matching types, as well as your choice of three board styles right from the beginning. This one makes you wait (in the hour demo I never did get past swap). Also the powerups are random, infrequent and not very powerful. The magnet that clears all types of an icon, does not clear the tile. Bombs (which you get for matching 5) don't seem to clear tiles either. Because of the board shapes you often run into tiles that are very hard to clear. Power ups become necessary and not just a way to make the game go more quickly.
I will say that I played the whole demo and was startled when it ended. I was tempted to purchase it, as Match 3 games are rare to begin with and even more so for Macs. At this point though I would rather replay the original and save my credits for another day.
BTW - the description of the game reads "While other Match-3 games support only one gameplay mode (Swap or Chain), Lost in Reefs 2 goes a step further by now including Group, a third, new gameplay mode." is somewhat of an exaggeration. These choices have been available for many match 3 games for years.
