Atlantic Quest 2: The New Adventures
Cleaning Up the Seas
As the game starts out it seems that it was made for kids, but as you progress through the 124 Levels (it said 125, but I couldn't play the last one), the game becomes harder. You have three ways to play, swap, chain or group and you can change anytime. This game is timed to earn stars. If you complete a board within 3 minutes you receive 3 stars; within 3 min 30 seconds you receive two stars, and anything after that 1 star. There are trophies to win and powerups to earn.
There are breaks to put together hidden objects to help the sea creatures. There are also some obstacles like oil and rocks. Overall an easy game.

Juvenile but fun
Really for kids but a nice brain break from "doom and gloom" and other games that make you think. Similar to the first but more interaction with the fish.

Still great, but not in all areas..
I got the first AQ when I was going through physical therapy, and it helped a lot. It's still in my 'Top 5'. :o)
This version is not better but not worse.
* Beautiful artwork - just as the first game
* New characters that also have powerup abilities
* A few challenges thrown in
* More levels to play
* Background music; I found it relaxing.
* I miss the tiles from the first game; these seem slightly smaller.
* Where's the 'breaking glass' sound? When you make a match in the first game, there was this cool shattering effect. The one here is not annoying by any means; it's just not the same.
More pros than cons, so I can honestly recommend it. :o)

- The game memory management is very good; no lag time.
- The graphics are well-done, even if unappealing (to me).
- The game tiles are too small.
- There are not enough (or obvious enough) indicators for achievements/bonuses.
- The power-ups are not visible enough.
This is yet another in a long line of passable, but not truly worthy-of-a-purchase non-HOG games. The market is inundated with HOGS with not enough variety of other games. I'd really like to see some quality match-3 games being released. There haven't been any exceptional ones in a long time. This is no exception.

Decent Time Waster
Passable M3, nothing new going on here. There is no time limit however the faster you can complete a level the more stars you will get per level. It does get quite challenging if your goal is to get all three stars each level. You will likely have to rely on the power ups that you can earn. This game is just ok.
My only complaint is that randomly during game play a window will pop up reminding you that you can change to another type of game (even mid game) ie: chain, group, etc. The option is great but I don't need to have my game play continuously stopped for it. I have to admit I am wondering if I am doing something to cause this, I don't think so but please let me know.

So new it's not really. But it's fun. The graphics are nice. The music ok. For the meantime quite well. However, I had expected more. It would have been much more possible.

If you have children then this would be fine for them, but for me it was sooo boring I couldn't even finish the trial.
The gameplay was beyond simple, even mind numbing. The overall feel was dated, and childish.
It seemed the maker had no real concern over making this game, and it showed in all the aspects of the game.
A no go for me.
