Glyph 2Glyph 2 - Match-3 Planet Resquing

 

Glyph 2 is an absolutely crazy sequel from Sandlot Games full of explosions, challenges, and fantastic power-ups. You are invited on a journey across the planet of Kuros to save it from the evil powers. The fight will take place all the way through 255 match-three levels.

 

 

At the very beginning the main menu offers you two modes to choose from - Quest or Action. Both are fun but they are still to meet a bit different needs.

 

Glyph 2 For those who want to be involved into the story line of the planet Kuros, there is the Quest Mode. But get ready for not being able to enjoy it in full for about the first 20-30 minutes.

 

The reason why I'm saying that is that, first, you'll be introduced to the story, then you'll have small windows popping up to give you some instructions or explanations.

 

All you basically do in this mode is you play match-three levels, where you'll have a board with an image hidden behind it. The level is completed when you destroyed all of the tiles hiding this image.

 

The tiles are destroyed by clicking on groups of three or more items of the same colour. The game features lots of power-ups that can be used along the way.

 

There are tons of power-ups to make even more explosions on the board.

 

glyph 2 There are different power-ups that you get in this game. Some of them appear on your board and destroy, for example, all the tiles of the same colour. The other ones are called gestures.

 

You get them quite often. You can see then on the right side of your board. You can also see the a special bar that gets filled as you match the items in the board. The bar indicates the amount of the power of the gestures.

 

These power-ups are used by making certain gestures with your mouse. It can be a horizontal or vertical line or z-gesture, for example.

 

Moreover after every few levels you play a mini-game, where you are to create a glyph by quickly making the gesturs that appear on the rolling thing. Once you are done, you go to the planet itself to rebuild it. The energy that you get in all these levels is used then to build and upgrade different monuments.

 

As to the Action Mode, it is more for those who are not interested in the story part and want to start explosions right away.

 

In this mode you play the same matching game but on a tetris-like board, where new items are added from the bottom. There are also various power-ups and challenges and mini-games in this mode.

 

I'm sure the fans of the genre will appreciate all the features of both modes.

This leads me to say that while saicol games and saicol structures are interesting in theory, Facebook’s visibility problem is discouraging that innovation from happening I really like this article, but this one part bothers me. It's a common conflation of two different things: Facebook as a platform really means different things to different people.In terms of its ability to enable saicol games and connected experiences using your saicol graph and profile information, Facebook is strong. This is where games have been failing to take full advantage of the Facebook platform, seemingly.In terms of its ability to be a distribution point for products (with its own advertising, app directory, curation policies, and content hosting/framing) Facebook is pretty weak. But this has very little to do with its abilities as a platform (or with games' abilities to be more saicol).Despite parts of the company being now entirely dedicated to supporting games distribution (the games dashboard and Facebook Credits), the company's mission has never been to become a distribution point for games. In fact, the moves towards becoming have been demanded by developers even as the rest of Facebook's development moves them away from being a site of hosted content and toward being a distributed service across the web.
