Azkend 2 by 10tons Ltd [iPad]


Azkend 2 is an upcoming adventure action puzzle from 10tons and MythPeople. The game will be available on several platforms including PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

TAMPERE, Finland – October 13, 2011 - 10tons has released first gameplay footage from Azkend 2. Azkend 2 is a sequel to the multiplatform hit game Azkend. The sequel introduces full screen animated background art, scripted story sequences and several new interesting game modes.

"Our goal is to create a sequel that improves the game on all fronts. We've also listened to the customer feedback from the first game. For example, the game boards now scale to fill the screen and we also have a new game mode for those who like to reach for the highscore.", commented Sampo Töyssy, the producer of Azkend 2.

The sequel will build upon the signature features that people loved in the first game: polished playability, a mysterious storyline, and breathtaking environments. Visions game mode will also return, but this time all sceneries are animated. The storyline begins when a ship is sunk by a maelstrom and the hero wakes up in a very strange place.

Azkend 2 will be available for for PC, Mac, iOS, Android, bada, webOS and Symbian^3. First versions will be released before the end of 2011.

I am a huge Azkend fan. When they made Azkend HD, the boards stayed the same size because "people really liked the backgrounds." So sort of smallish boards relative to the iPad screen.

I am worried that Azkend 2 is going to have smallish boards, not because of smaller tile size, but because of bigger tile size. At least that is what the screen shots are showing. I really hope that the tile size remains the same size as in Azkend HD, but the board size takes more screen real-estate. End result - lots more tiles.

Loved the first and love most of what they do.

Fine there is a little more screen real estate of the iPad used this time.

Azkend 2 will have more variance in board sizes than Azkend 1. There will be boards with lots of tiles (within limits of playability) and boards with a bit less tiles. So, the overall average tile count in levels is higher than with Azkend 1. Also, the boards scale down and up so that they fill most of the screen.

Glad to hear that at least some of the boards will have increased tile counts... I'l be watching closely for this...

I can't wait. Azkend #1 is one of my favorite apps, and I don't even know why. There's just something about it that pulls me into it again and again.

I think most of the boards will be bigger, if not all. That said, we haven't done a statistical analysis on the tile count But the goal is to make them fun, playable, and cover the most of the screen
