10tons’ latest adventure puzzle game Azkend 2: The World Beneath is now available on the Mac App Store. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 and costs US$6.99.
Here’s how the game is described: “Azkend 2 is the second installment in the acclaimed Azkend-series. The game is immediately available on the Mac App Store. Azkend 2 will take the player deep into the bowels of earth and waltz him through some of the most awe inspiring scenes ever seen in a puzzle game. The game includes eight gorgeous hand drawn and animated full screen scenes and a blockbuster soundtrack by Jonathan Geer.
“The main part of Azkend 2 is the Adventure-mode. The Adventure levels include a lot of classic Azkend action puzzling: string together items and make matches until the whole board turns blue. In addition there are new level types like the Bugs. In a Bugs-level the player has to match around moving bugs and prevent them from reaching the top of the board. In total there are six unique level styles. Throughout the adventure the player travels through eight unique scenes and uncovers countless subterranean secrets.
“There are also two bonus game modes: Time- and Medal-challenges. In the Time-challenge the player has to score as much points as possible within a limited time. In the Medal-challenge the player can replay the levels and try to gain a medal from each level.”
