This is my 2nd Pixel Puzzles game, my first is the Japan-themed one. I have to say, I got exactly what I expected for a sequel to that game. I recommend it to anyone who likes jigsaw puzzles or has enjoyed a previous Pixel Puzzles game.

Best Features:
- Really nice artwork featuring a good variety of anime art styles
- Helpful user interface for those who have trouble with puzzle games
- Enough puzzles to justify its price
• (Although, it's always better to just buy it on sale)
- Easy achievements

Worst Features:
- Subpar soundtrack
• (Just mute the game and listen to your own music)
- The fairy who:
• Blocks your user interface
• Is needed to make the puzzle easier
• Has a really bad art style
• Will not be quiet for 10 seconds

FYI this is NOT fanservice anime.

The Pixel Puzzles 2 series (Anime, Birds, Space) certainly has improvements over their first 2 tries (Japan and Zombies). 25 puzzles (26 if you count the like 20 piece minigame)

Pros:
-Good afk time killer that you don't need to pay attention to
-The pieces no longer are rotated to the correct position making this series a decent amount more difficult.
-Decent powers that aren't 100% tied to dice roll of putting down the right piece to fill a bar. Now there are 3 powers 1- Correct rotation for piece 2- Ghost image 3- Show placement on board for current piece.
-The "puzzle moat" where the pieces are is much improved in this series
-It's a puzzle game you really should know what to expect

Cons:
-Unplayable with sound. There is a "helpful" fairy that won't shut up and there is no options to disable so just turn off audio and put on whatever you like listening to since the sounds don't add much anyway.
-Each puzzle only has X number of pieces you can't play any with different piece counts, same as the first series.

IMO it's worth it on a sale. I play this afk at work so this is great as it never requires 100% of my attention.

Edit: They apperently did update where you can press "Delete" and it will remove the fairy but the game does not tell you that, had to read it on a forum.

Had ~25 hours when I finished all of the puzzles but that is time the game was open and not actual gameplay.

This is a pretty relaxing jigsaw puzzle game, fairly barebones. Make sure you turn the sound off on the 'helper' beacuse they she will drive you insane. The fact that you have to rotate pieces can get crazy frustrating on some of the larger puzzles though, I wish you could disable this added challenge as I just play it to relax.

Game is really good, puzzle are entertaining and the art is great. Except for one thing and everyone say it so of course I going to say it. THE FAIRY....she annoying but that is bad is that you can push delete to get rid of her however it take away your special and you can't use them for the whole puzzle.

Pretty much it annoying nagging voice with use of special to help you on the puzzle or peaceful slient with no specials........reminds me of movie saw with the jigsaw killer......do you want to ears to bleed from listening to an annoying voice or get a headache from no help with the puzzle as you stare blankly at the screen think what to do

Music is pretty basic could be better but easy fix is just turn the music down in the game and open up your music player on your computer and now your able to relax as you puzzle out

Ok once again a jigsaw puzzle game from the Decaying Logic team.

Positive changes from the others

No stupid erase your progress Koi!
You are not being seiged by zombies.
Game now SAVES your progress. You place a piece right, it's there waiting in place the next time you play that puzzle.

Negative changes

You can't kill/punch/mute that stupid fairy!

Yes that's correct each version of this series has an anoying factor. This time it's a constantly chattering floating scientist fairy that micro fairy dusts you in small slow slow increments power ups. Hate her so much.

Cool changes

Now you're going to have to rotate pieces. Adds wonderful chalenge to each puzzle.


Basically though there's a new game anoyance factor to go with the puzzle theme change. But at least now you don't have to restart a puzzle from the begining. It'll save your spot. BIG plus!

Worth buying if you enjoy a good jigsaw puzzle.

It is was you expect it to be, puzzles of anime. I suggest playing this while listening to music, or watching a movie, or chatting to a buddy. Not the the faint of hearts tho. So be prepared to spend an hour on the small puzzles, and 6 hours on the biggest one :D


7/10

What is Pixel Puzzles 2: Anime?

Pixel Puzzles 2: Anime is a strong contestant for the "doesn't know the difference between anime and manga" award. Other than that, it is a puzzle game. You are presented with 25 puzzles that range from 60 to 350 pieces each, with only one having 350 pieces. There is one assistant flying around giving you bubbles you can use for optional help.

The graphics are fitting for a puzzle game, but the puzzle pictures sometimes, as you will know from the puzzles by a big German company "Ravensburger", if you ever laid them, make it difficult to see where you would want to fit tiles. This however is remedied by the gameplay (see below).

The music is not disturbing and fitting for the theme, but the spoken words are annoying. In fact I shut the sound off completely after a while and heard podcasts while playing this, as I prefer to do with relaxing games. Your (fairy?) helper always tells things that are funny the first time but get annoying later. For example while she gives you energy bubbles (see below) she says "This is because I love you" and such nonsense. I'm not certain if this is aimed at cliché nerds with anime bedsheets or a parody of their hikikomori lifestyle, in either case it is an annoyance to me the third or fourth time, losing its fun to become a Navi-esque bother.

The gameplay is where a puzzle game rises or falls. There are several aspects to be considered by a developer, and I think in this case they are well covered. At first there is progression: The levels can be progressed through on a grid. Progress within levels is - surprisingly, I must say after playing the previous game - saved even after exiting a puzzle. Great plus! I did not test if you can have multiple puzzles saved at the same time, but I assume so since I started others up in-between, although not laying any pieces there, and the developer says on the forum that every piece laid is saved.
The second aspect is on the puzzle itself, the motifs. These are okay but repetitive. You usually see some kawaii guy or girl, rarely a couple, in front of some background. The third aspect is how you grab pieces. This is well executed in the entire series. Around the puzzle there is a basin filled with water (see the store page screenshots). You can take any piece at any time. If you want to save it for later, just lay it somewhere on the board. A propos "laying on the board" - if you lay a piece correctly rotated close to where it should be, it snaps in automatically and can't be accidentally removed. This is the same in the entire series, but worth mentioning. The fourth and final consideration is what to do if you get stuck. There are some optional hints which you can use. I never used any of them, so I can't say how they work, but from what I gathered you can see the board motif (which could be done outside the game in a gallery as well, but here you see it directly on the board) or show where a piece you hold belongs to. There are several other buttons but I didn't press any, as I said. Probably you can also change the background color of the cardboard you lay the puzzle on.

The controls are easy: You only need a mouse, and once the space key to enter the main menu. This is actually annoying, as each time you want to play, all puzzles except one are accessed on the second screen only for which you need an additional click and spacebar press.

So what is the length of the game? Assuming you take your time without resorting to any of the help features, you can realistically expect 15-25 hours of gameplay, depending on how good a puzzler you are. If you use the ingame help, this might be shorter, I can't say it since I did not test it.

Would I recommend this game? Only to puzzle fans or such looking for a relaxing gameplay. If you need fast action, you're wrong here. If you want puzzles, you can grab this. While this is far from perfect, it is a game puzzle fans will enjoy - even if most likely with at least the speech turned off.

I was tempted to not recommend this based on the very irritating fairy swimming around your puzzle and interjecting obnoxious comments every thirty seconds or so. Then I discovered that the fairy can be removed with the delete key and life was suddenly much better. This does, unfortunately, also disable her hint functions, but since I personally wasn't interested in using hints (what's the point in that, it's a puzzle!), getting rid of the fairy was well worth the lack of hints.

The game itself is a straightforward jigsaw puzzle set, with various piece counts and pictures. The pieces do require rotation which adds some challenge that was absent from previous games in this series (I enjoy the other installments but they went much faster).

So in the end, since I was able to disable the fairy from hell, I will recommend this for anyone who likes a good jigsaw. However, if you do want to use the hint function attached to the fairy, bear in mind that you'll either have to listen to her prattle or you'll have to shut off the sound for the whole game (as there is no separate volume control for voice vs music/sound effects).

As the game title say, this one is a puzzle game where the theme is Anime. The max number of pieces is 350 and the min is 60. So if you love puzzle and anime, this is a perfect game for you.

Pros:
- Nice picture of anime
- Beautiful steam cards
- Easy to play

Cons: the Pixie is very annoying

if you like jigsaw puzzles you will love this game for sure.
i enjoyed all 4 Pixel Puzzles games that they released so far, this one has the rotation feature same as the one in Pixel Puzzle Birds ( you have to rotate the piece to figure how and where it should be placed) which made the game harder than the first 2 and it will take more time to solve the puzzles, i really recommend them all to any jigsaw puzzles fan.

i would suggest Putting your own music while playing.

"At least you can delete that annoying Fairy 10/10"

PixelPuzzles Anime is another game from the PixelPuzzles series. It's still a nice and entertaining jigsaw puzzle game. But this time it has become a little bit harder. Puzzle pieces can now be rotated into four directions. So more possibilities to do it wrong. Thankfully there is a sidekick NPC that helps you with some powerups. Unfortunately it's "Pixel Pixie", a permanent blabbering fairy that drops you time by time some pixie dust into your powerup meter. So the game keeps being remarkable for that little devil.
