What's New in Version 1.3.4
• Support for IOS8
• Support for iPhone6 / iPhone 6 plus
• Multiplayer fixes
6+ (iOS 8.3)
This title is hailed by many as a classic, a veritable paragon of iOS gaming, and I tried dutifully to embrace the experience. It seamlessly blends RPG and match-three mechanics, but the adventure was not without a few major complications. First, the app freezes sporadically resulting in losses of progress. Second, as with so many titles, PQ2 handles difficulty by providing enemies with better odds of success (than users) as opposed to character design. Stronger enemies appear to be little more than products of favorable RNG as a consequence. And, yes, favorable RNG presents a bit of a paradox. An unhappy one. Third, nearly every aspect of the user interface is slow and ponderous. This lends the game a certain feel: that of running through quicksand. My painstaking journey has passed the 18-hour mark, and I can only hope that the end is near. Minus a star for each of the foregoing points of interest.
EDIT: 38 hours and 13 minutes of torture before finally reaching a somewhat anticlimactic ending.
Works pretty well on the iPhone 6. Only problem is that tap/hold to get information doesn't seem to work on enemy spells or weapons, which can affect your play strategy.
Other than that, the battles are far more balanced and fair than PQ1 because you can always choose to use your weapon and action points if your spells keep getting resisted - an option not available in PQ1. Even though the mini games aren't as diverse as PQ1 overall I find the experience much more enjoyable.
It Actually Works!
Ever since I bought the app ages ago, I always ran into the game crashing every time I reached the Contested Zone, and was never able to progress. This update has fixed whatever caused that bug, as the app now works! I've happily been able to beat the game.
It's not as good as Puzzle Quest 1 in term of plot, but the art and puzzle mechanics have been improved a lot in lieu of it. And the cast of characters isn't bad (some are very amusing) and there's even a few interesting twists along the way to keep you interested.
However, some of the other old bugs are still present, hence the 4 stars. A few gem changing spells can rarely lag the game, and I have had it freeze a couple times during a battle, where I have to quit the battle and resume.
But otherwise, this is the best match 3 puzzle RPG available on iOS (unless they bring back the original, ofc). It's a bit hard to control on my iPhone 5, and overall the PC version runs smoother and better, but it is still a very enjoyable experience.
