CRITIC REVIEWS:

'The game's free, but it's the "good" kind of free-to-play. You get coins for the gumball machine by playing, watching video ads, or just checking in on the app once or twice a day. It all feels very fair.'

'Ive been enjoying Anodia 2 a lot. The visuals are fantastic, the music is charming, and the various levels are unconventional from most brick breaker games, making it a nice change.'

'Anodia 2 is a fun arcade challenge that livens up the brick breaker genre once again making it worth picking up.'

I'm quite surprised. This game is quite beautiful and plays really well. I love the art and how each level looks unique, often playing differently.

There's also lots of fun power ups to make things more interesting. I do wish the player moved a bit faster but I suppose they made it slower since there's a power up to move faster.

Only cons I can see are that the gift / buy system should be explained. Took me a while to figure out what it did but I'm assuming you buy new levels with coins you earn. Which is a nice incentive to keep playing since there's a good amount. Also the blue icon on the bottom right during play, I'm not sure what that is. And the app icon (or maybe the background) seems somewhat blurry.

Overall, probably the best game for me this week. I really enjoy the art style and it feels like a zen game in a way

Just like the first one, this game is beautiful.
A well-done brick breaker, and is seriously worth the download.

Seems to have a similar coin system to Crossy road, not exactly sure what I'm getting out of the machine but I'm getting something!

The gameplay is great and it has touch controls (which are perfect)

I thinkkk I figured it out. It must be giving you coins for the machine (just like crossy road). You don't get much for playing single levels but it feels a lot more fulfilling than running across a street with single taps

Btw, I do wish individual levels had high scores on them instead of just the full high score from playing until you run out of lives.

If you loved the first Anodia, you will undoubtedly love Anodia 2.

I didn't think it possible to improve upon the first game, but the developers have managed to create an even more addictive brick-breaker with sharper graphics and beautifully unique levels. Each level's landscape is so different than the other that there is no risk of the game feeling redundant in the least.

The game also includes easy ways to earn fun goodies by either watching videos, receiving a gift (reset by a timer), or by playing the lottery for 100 coins to earn a prize (a random level or coins).

If you're unfamiliar with the first Anodia and are trying to figure out what the power-ups/-downs do, go to the "Settings" menu where there is a handy explanation. Although the power-downs are technically disadvantageous to gameplay, sometimes they do help and I find I like to get them anyway because the art is fun to look at. I especially like the one with the clouds.

I've switched back and forth between tap/tilt controls and both work seamlessly with great accuracy.

The only thing I would add is that I have been absolutely entertained by the brick puns in the "Upcoming" games posts by CLM and would love to see it added to the game for a bit of humor. Otherwise, this game is perfection. It's unique, tranquil, and addicting.

Thank you CLM for an awesome game and for the chance to try it out! I'm off to play more Anodia 2.

That blue thingy in the corner is the gravity field indicator, when it's full you can tap somewhere to direct balls to that location.

You sure are! Those things you're getting are new levels to play in. Isn't that neat?

Very recently we have came to the same conclusion, and there is a high chance that it will make its way to the future updates.

We liked the puns too, but unfortunately it seemed that they didn't fit the mood of the game (not to mention that they didn't fit in the menu ).

If anyone have any questions, we'll do our best to answer

Interesting....a real game that implements Crossy Road's brilliant method of monetization.
