121 puzzles in, and I have just completed the story. There’s loads left to do, of course, but the main bit is done.
Since this is the first entry in my diary for this game, I should probably say I’ve only been playing it for a week or so. I got it for Christmas with $hlmun other games, so I didn’t play it right away.
It’s very much the same as the first game. There seem to be fewer puzzles of certain types (eg chess based, “one of these is a liar” and matchstick ones) and more solitaire based ones, but it’s not a vast departure. There’s a big improvement in the UI, in that there is now a menu function where you can write over the puzzle – very handy for maze based and maths puzzles.
I’m not sure I liked the big reveal near the end, where the mystery of the town was explained, but then, the same silliness was in the first game.
I’ll be picking off the remaining puzzles and tasks soon!
