I recently got into playing these mosaic games and I love them!
In Mosaics 2 you continue your journey to learn about the Sea People and your goal is to fix an hourglass that allows the Sea People to reunite again - even though they lived in different times (thousands of years apart) and in different places throughout the world.
There is a lot of reading - but I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline.
As with the other World Mosaic games, you are given a grid with numbers associated with the columns and rows - you must use this info. to determine which blocks/bricks to keep and which to smash in order to complete a picture associated with the story.
If you like numbers and/or logic games, I think this would be a great game for you!

sudoku fans especially will get hooked on this game
What is the ancient history of the Sea People of the lost city of Atlantis? In this logic/pattern recognition game, you are transported back through time by a magical hourglass. In this game, you pick up where you left off in the first game by puzzling your way from the Jurassic period all the way to the Renaissance. Along the way, you restore the magical hourglass so you can return to your own time.
graphics: lovely. crisp, clear, and colourful.
music: it makes good background music, non-intrusive and not annoying. i like the sound effects, it is especially satisfying to listen to the sound of an entire row of squares being cleared or revealed.
storyline: more interesting than i originally thought it would be. it kinda grows on you as you play your way through the game.
gameplay: this is a picross game, a logic game based on a grid comprised of squares in rows and columns that have numbers above and to the left of each. these numbers correspond to the pattern of filled-in or blank squares in the grid. by correctly completing the grid, you reveal a picture that illustrates part of the story. the grids range in sizes from 5x5 (easy) to 25x25 (challenging).
my interaction: one hour demo. i plan to purchase this game.
there is high replay value here and the storyline is interesting enough to make you want to purchase this, the second part in this series of games. this captivating game is addictive and fun enough to keep the entire family interested, and people routinely hang over my shoulder when i play any of these picross games. who knows? you may meet a new friend whilst playing this game? i highly recommend this game! thanks big fish for sharing this fun game with us!

It's a Wonder World of Mosaics-TOO
I have all of the World Mosaics. Each one is as good as the next one or the previous one. The skill levels get higher the puzzles get larger. These games make you think and are great fun.

Great "tutorial" game.
As in the previous game in this series, this is a great teaching tool for beginners or those who just can't get a handle on how to play the game.
The goal: Using given numbers and exposing only those tiles both horizontally and vertically, you expose a picture.
My complaint is that I wish the tile backs were a little more varied than the Mosaic "2" . Using "x"s instead of those awful "dirt shovels" in the previous game is a definite improvement. Background music was a bit annoying so I turned volume down.
As I said, the game is great for beginners. Although I am also a beginner, it bored me to tears. There was no variety. Even the background graphics stayed the same. It was very "clinical". You worked with the same 10x10 graph of squares for EVERY level. BORING!
I still encourage everyone who has been scared to try this type of game (like me) to give it a whirl. It's a free hour demo and, who knows, you might have found a new genre of game you like to play (also like me - lol).
