Brick Quest 2
Brick Quest 2
Relaxing music and pleasing graphics make this a delightful brick-busting adventure. Those last two hard-to-get bricks can be skipped by catching the bird. Focus on releasing the Gwamos from their cages and capturing the monsters before breaking all the bricks. Otherwise, after the world is completed, you need to replay multiple screens to release the Gwamos you missed.
HINT: Monsters require multiple hits to stun them. When you see the stars around them, use the right mouse button to release a net and capture the monster. If you wish to replay a specific level, abort the level before breaking all the bricks. This is handy if you miss releasing the creature, or need specific monsters to open a new world.

Rescue the Gwamos!!!!!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS GAME!
I just finished playing the demo and doing an almost rave review for the previous game, Brickquest. Well, shame on me because this version is soooooooooooooooo much better and has sooooooooooooo much more to offer. Did I mention I LOVE THIS GAME! LOL.
Besides knowing you need to rescue the poor little Gwamos from their cages, everything else is trial by fire, so to speak (because there really is fire). Several reviewers griped about not having a tutorial or help page or instructions so they know what to expect - what bonus does what - what helps and what hinders your game play. Come on people! That's part of the fun of playing this game --- YOU have to figure it all out and, really, it's not that difficult after you catch a falling whatever a few times, you should grasp what it does - DUH!
The bonuses are better - to go along with the amazing graphics, stunning scenery (what out for those foreground plants, etc.), beautiful, relaxing music and, dang it ... it just isn't fair when the graphics and things going on during game play distract you so much you can't concentrate on your tiny little ball - like ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night! Having said that, it took me 2 worlds to get an extra life, when in the previous version of this game, extra lives were just raining upon me left and right and down the middle .. yeah, I do miss that. Still, I LOVE THIS GAME!
Free the Gwamo before breaking all the bricks or abort the level because if your OCD like I am, you are going to want to free ALL the Gwamos in each specific "world" and if you don't get them all the first time around, you have to replay the ENTIRE world - why can't we just replay the levels that still have captured Gwamos in them? Bummer and this needs a major change.
The graphics, the scenery, the music, the singing at the opening scene - I just don't know what it is about this version that has me saying bye-bye-bye to my plans of getting the previous version. But, this is a definite buy for me. I almost hit the "buy" button when the free demo ended but I'm weird, I guess, I have to wait for Bonus Punch Monday.
Obviously, I highly recommend everyone who likes a good brick-breaking game to try this one. The demo is a very quick hour-long and it's free. I didn't think I would but ..... I LOVE THIS GAME! Did I mention that already? LOLOL.

This game would be far more fun had an instruction page been included. Everything here is strictly a trial and error process. There are no descriptions of what the power ups will do or an explanation regarding the methods to dispatch the rodents, spiders, bugs, etc. in order to maximize your point total.
On the plus side, the graphics are nice and the music is exceptional. Predicated upon the fact there is no help page, I give this game a less than enthusiastic recommendation.

Where's the Help?
Bad bad bad - shame on the developers for not giving any help section. I totally agree with the reviewer on the lack of instructions! Unheard of in any game I've ever played. There is absolutely no way of knowing what to catch or not catch, what is good or bad. I kept losing lives because I'd end up grabbing at falling items that turned out to have a very bad impact on my game play. If i'd had instructions or in-game help, I'd have known to avoid certain ones. I never would have known about capturing the monster bees without reading the hint from the second reviewer.
How could this game have ever been released until they finished making it (i.e., "Help" "How to Play" or "Instructions")? I'm surprised BFG didn't test this out before offering it.
I simply cannot recommend this to anyone. And I loved Brick Quest.
