Awesome game, one which I'd recommend to anyone who likes puzzles. I've put 5 hours into it as of time of writing this and I'm only 4% done, not counting master puzzles.

There are 560 Challenge mode puzzles, after finishing each you get a small bonus puzzle. There are also Master Mode Puzzles which are bigger and therefore harder than ones from challenge modes.

Puzzle types you'll find in Challenge and Master modes:

· Wordsearch
· Sudoku
· Crossword
· Hide & Seek
· Link-a-pix
· Fitword
· Backwords
· Pieceword
· Silhouette

Bonus puzzle types:

· Hangman
· Chain Letters
· Sum-up
· Picture quiz
· Colour-in
· Perfect Pairs
· Splitwords
· Add-up
· Jigsaw

This is more or less an reproduction of the first Puzzler World, but with a better mechanism for hint tokens, a nicer in-game trophy system and some slightly better execution of puzzles. I would recommend getting this over the first one, and as before it's geared towards a younger audience but still enjoyable for older players as well.

Only con I can see is that the developers didn't link their in-game trophies to Steam achievements, so it only has the same simple set as the first game, which are fairly straightforward to play through for those of you looking for simple puzzle games or just a few more achievements to rack up.

As far as this game goes it provided some light entertainment to kill a few hours. If you enjoy crosswords, Sudoku’s, word searches, letter games and similar puzzles you can’t really go wrong!

Plenty of puzzles to keep you going for hours. Some of the interface could do with improvements, but overall great value for money. There are also in game trophies to collect once you've got all the acheivements, if that appeals to the completionist in you.

Just like the first Puzzler World but with some different added puzzles. Fun to play every once in awhile when your fancy a puzzle or two. :)

Acquired the game for a pittance.
I'm nowhere close to finished with the game and already I have more play time in it than many AAA titles.

Some puzzles are painfully easy, but certainly not all.


Be warned: unless your a Brit, you WILL have to use hint tokens on the crosswords. Bloody ♥♥♥♥♥♥s make you feel like a proper pillock. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ to that.

Don't get me wrong. This game isn't too bad...thing is the first game was much better. They replaced the presents with a wheel you spin for letters and hint tokens. They changed some of the mechanics for some games (example: Fitword is kinda wonky. Instead of typing or drawing the letters, you have to drag and drop the words, and it's slightly annoying to do that.) Some instructions are vague (for example: Backwords. You have to shade in the wrong letters rather than the right letters, which is confusing.) Finally, they changed something from simple to very complicated (example again: Link A Pix. Instead of having a whole area on your screen to link the numbers, you get 1/4 of the screen to look at and you can't zoom out. This can be very confusing.) If you are looking for a sequel to Puzzler World, you shouldn't worry much. Just stick to the first game.

Nothing diferent from the Puzzler World 1. Only difference is that this second part has bugged one achievement and that really sucks. Developers don't even care to fix that crap, they don't care for their game anymore. So my suggestion is: better buy Puzzler World 1 and enjoy play that one (as I said almost same game), then buy this bugged bad copy of it...

Puzzler World 2 is worse than Puzzler World 1.

* PW2 has one achievement bugged (see worldwide statistics)
* PW2 link-a-pix needs scrolling (very annoying) even when it's not bigger than the link-a-pix in PW1
* Reward animations take twice as long = twice as annoying, with mandatory wheel-spin and all
* 4 new puzzle types
* only British English (PW1 had American/British/4 other languages)
* same difficulty level (easy-medium

The first Puzzler World was better in my opinion as far as the interface goes. This one made some unnecessary changes that only served to lessen the quality of the sequel.

The new link-a-pix is a lot more annoying especially since you have to drag the screen around to find the corners of the puzzle. I'm not sure why they decided it was a good idea. They could have just as easily added in a zoom function.

They removed codewords and added 2 other types of puzzles to replace it. Why was it removed to begin with?

Aside from the 2 things I pointed out, the game is pretty much the same. It goes on sale often so it's a nice little purchase that can entertain you anywhere between 5-20 hours depending on your enthusiasm for puzzles both easy and challenging.

Better than the first one by a mile, the addition of awards made this so much better. Highly recommended to all puzzle fans.

I totally like puzzles... I also like Cheevs.... so this is a really great game for me.

Fair warning - it is really really simple and probably waaay too colourful for a lot of people but I had a good time. It is like one of those great big puzzle books you used to do as a kid, you know the ones you could get at the dollar store?

Is this game bad? No. But it does have problems. And you cannot not compare this to the first one. The puzzles are still here, and mostly good, but the new ones that they added aren't as good. "Backwards" is effetively a combination word search and crossword puzzle that becomes trivially easy once you realize that, on a computer version, you can just black out the entire board and then erase the words. They altered Fitwords so that you can grab and drag words onto the board, which is very useful... when it works. They've updated a lot of features, made the resolution bigger, made Link-a-Pix be a scrollable window now instead of trying to jam everything onto one screen (a change I didn't like a first, but it is growing on me), they added a Master mode with harder puzzles once you've played through enough in Challenge mode. They added a trophy room. There are problems with Picture Quiz where some of the answers are subjectively wrong (for example, asking you to count something in the picture, but the answer is only from one portion when there are others visible elsewhere). And, the biggest change from the first, this one seems to be locked in UK English. So, for the American audience, there are going to be spelling errors and references/phrases that don't make sense. All in all, if you really like these kinds of puzzles, and have already burned through the first game, then yea, pick this one up. But if you haven't finished the first, stick with it. You'll be glad you did.

Further information: The game contains some fairly serious bugs. Typing in "0" while in a Sudoku game will break the UI and render Sudoku unplayable until you restart the game. In Master Mode, you can't scroll past the first 16 puzzles, even if there are more available. You can click below them and get extra puzzles, but only four of them. This means some puzzles, and thus some in-game trophies, are unobtainable.

A very good game for children in development, with a lot of different puzzles, it surely is the best puzzle game i ever saw, but the let down is the resolution, and the fact that it opens in windowed mode all the time.

The Sequel to Puzzler World is just a little expanded version.
Some new gamemodes are added like Fit Word which is a drag and drop Crosswords , or one like a Crosswords reverse. There are also little graphical changes. Now you earn your hintpoints after a solved puzzle on a wheel of fortune.
The biggest lack of this game is that it is only in english. Very hard for people outside the UK to solve some crosswords for example. Thats the reason I must invest lots of hint points into unknown expressions. But some of the old game modes and the mathematics riddles are still fun.

Feels like a step back from the orginal Puzzler World. The Link-a-Pix are zoomed in, with no apparent option for zooming out, and there is no American English option. Just adds frustration when these problems were not in the original. I'm not looking for massive improvements on the original, to at least maintain the level of quality from the original.

If you ever had a Nintendo DS with assorted puzzle game cartridges, and the device one day unfortunately decided to join the Lord in the Heavens, you will understand why I bought this once I saw it on sale, and why I thoroughly recommend it. Puzzle difficulty picks up in pace while you progress, and the variety of tasks (crosswords, sudokus etc.) is guaranteed to keep you entertained.

There are some glitches (like being unable to access all the bonus levels and one of the achivements and the crosswords can be a bit british) but the 560 base puzzles work fine and if you're into the puzzle types you get in those puzzle magazines you should have fun with It. It's worth the full price and definitely worth it if you can get it during a sale.
