What's good: From the makers of hit PC and iPhone games Alawar Entertainment comes what can perhaps be considered its best and most brilliantly executed app yet. Sequel to the very popular title The Treasures of Montezuma, The Treasures of Montezuma 2 brings back everything that was good about the first title and adds exciting new gameplay features to make it even better. Travel back to tribal lands and jungles in this ambitious Aztec-themed game that takes match-three gaming to greater heights. Explore Adventure Mode, where you tap and blast your way through five different stages - each with eight levels and a puzzle at the end. Match similar pieces and clear gemmed symbols from the board within the time limit to earn coins, then head over to the town to purchase beautifully crafted ancient objects, buildings, and enchanted totems that give you the power to extend time, destroy blocks, and remove crystals. Get higher scores as you learn to use these bonuses in combination, and cause a Score Frenzy by making a series of lighting-fast matches and filling vessels at the bottom of the screen with sand. The flawless combination of magic and earthly elements woven into breathtaking graphics and dazzling effects will draw you in and hold you in its spell, while two more modes - Puzzle challenges your strategic skills by requiring you to collect all the crystals without replacing cleared tokens, and Endless will continue to fill the screen until no more matches can be made - guarantee long hours of entertainment. There are also three difficulty types and an option to play in either landscape or portrait mode; needless to say, players of differing skills and inclinations will appreciate the flexible options that cater to individual preferences. To cap it all off, an awards system lets you earn masks for completing each level as well as creative titles for certain achievements so you can have something to show for all your hard work. Captivating and exotic, this gem of an app is definitely one match-three game unlike any other!

Suggestions for improvement: Multiplayer challenges over the internet and achievements via social gaming platforms allow players to share the magic with the community and make for an even more immersive experience!
