We played through Feyruna II and tried to do our part in saving the poor kingdom from total destruction.

Feyruna II is a completely different game from its predecessor, sharing the same storyline. Feyruna is once again under siege, this time from dark crystals, it is down to the druids and you to stop them. However the druids have lost their powers, in order of them to retain their power they need a magic sphere.

The graphics in Feyruna II is simplistic and resemble the good old platform games for the Super Nintendo, which can be good thing if you are into nostalgia. The menu graphics is more up to date and look great.

Feyruna II features straight-forward game play, move a sphere through different platforms keeping it from falling off.  Each sphere should be guided to a druid, to your help there are different rune-stones scattered across the level. Casting a spell on a sphere while it is moving causes it to do something. There are different spells such as making a sphere fall lighter or move faster. To spice up gameplay Feyruna II also features several boss and bonus levels.  If you ever played Lemmings you will feel right at home since Feyruna II is a lot like it.

Feyruna II does require some serious thinking and it takes some time getting used to the way the “puzzles” are solved. First of all the player really needs to follow the different on-screen tips and texts, there is simply no way to figure it out without them.  As the game progress the puzzles get more challenging, the puzzles make the game a good pick for more experienced puzzle gamers.

A lot of indie puzzle games don’t have background stories, but Feyruna II does making the game more intriguing. However the story itself is not that deep and it is not presented in a way that makes you really care.

It is a bit strange that Feyruna II is lacking in-game music, I think a game like this will benefit a lot from a good soundtrack; it does get quiet at times. Other puzzle games often feature great tracks enhancing them further.

Overall Feyruna II is a good puzzle game, the concept itself is not new but the implementation is done with an extra twist and I suppose that’s what makes this game intriguing. However it is a bit hard to keep the spirit and interest during the game.
