The iPhone is a powerful mobile gaming device. There are plenty of 3D, intense games available for iPhone. But sometimes you want a game that is easy to pick up and hard to master. A game that actually challenges you. Many games promise to be hard and challenging but not many actually deliver on those promises. Tangled 2 for iPhone is a tough puzzle game that will test your patience and kills time like no other game. It may look simple on the surface, but it can be very mind-numbing.
Tangled 2 is based on a simple concept. Your goal is untangle the dots and avoid any overlaps. It’s not as easy as it looks like. The game does have 30 different puzzles (they do get much harder after the first couple of levels). You may not be able to finish them all at first. The good news is you’ll start figuring out each level after a few tries. I do like the fact that the game provides you with information on the lines that overlap as you move the dots. It can help you finish levels more easily. Once you have finished those 30 levels, you can tackle random levels.
The game has 3 modes. The Regular Mode is where you should probably start. The Random Mode is for those of you who have already mastered the first mode and want to challenge yourself further. The Action Mode (which is new in this version) adds a whole new dimension to the game. Now you’ll have to try to untangle dots as fast as you can or you’ll have too many to handle on your screen (see the above screen-shot to get an idea). Tangled 2 also has an online scoring system, so you can compare your scores with others. It’s OpenFeint compatible, giving you the chance to keep pushing yourself to achieve better scores.
All in all, Tangled 2 is a very challenging game for iPhone that will keep you entertained and make your mind sharper. It starts easy but gets quite difficult as you spend time with it. If you are up for a challenging game, Tangled 2 has got plenty of mind-numbing levels for you to master.
