Take to the high seas and match three with 10tons' Azkend 2

Published by at

Continuing a strong run of releases on Windows Phone 8, 10tons title this week is Azkend 2. It's a 'Match 3' game built on a hex grid, but as you would expect from the Finnish company, it's matched up with a compelling storyline to keep you engaged through the adventure mode.

From the app listing:

  • Carefully polished gameplay and controls
  • Eight unique hand drawn and animated scenes
  • Three game modes; Adventure, Time and Medals
  • More than 60 levels in the Story Mode
  • More than a dozen achievements
  • Professional voice overs in the story scenes
  • Cinematic soundtrack by Jonathan Geer

I've been impressed with the re-imagining process that 10tons apply to many game genres, and while it looks like they have applied the same process here, it slightly misses the mark for me. The levels are very short to play, and with the adventure narrated between levels through audio, there was more time listening than there was playing.

But the app is still a high quality one, and a trial version is available so you can judge for yourself. Azkend 2 can be found in the Windows Store online (here) or through the app on your handset.
