Save The Roundy 2 is a very exciting arcade game for Windows Phone in which you will find useful excellent reaction and logical thinking. The goal of the game is to save funny furry characters of different colors, they are locked in cages which some wag built into towers featuring poor stability and plenty of extraneous elements.
Goals and objectivesYou need to destroy all the wooden elements so that the cages with the prisoners fall on a small platform and stay there for some time. Unfortunately, the platform is indeed very small and it is incredibly difficult to keep the cage fallen from above on it. You will have to think over what blocks to start disassemble a tower with to prevent the cages from falling aside and make them fall closer to the center of the field. Thus you will have more chances to keep the animals and not to drop the cages with them into an abyss.
After a few levels, the tasks will become so complex that it will seem to you that they are insoluble. Especially, a complication of the gameplay is the fact that for every attempt to solve the same problem you will forfeit one heart. At the beginning of the game, you are given a small number of hearts and with each level completed you will receive three more hearts. In addition, while playing on the left side of the playing field you will often encounter a variety of bonuses that may include both the previously-mentioned heart and a magnet, and some other means to facilitate the task. However, we should not deceive ourselves.
Game features and DonatAttempts (hearts) will melt before your very eyes, and if you don't treat the game seriously, very fast time will come when they will be nothing left of them and you will have to buy hearts for real money. For their purchase the in-game currency may be as well sufficient which you can obtain for your achievements in the previous levels, but the pleasure is quite costly.
Sometimes it is better to fork over some bonus than to purchase additional attempts, although it will not give you any guarantees. For example, after the activation the magnet begins to attract all around to the center of the platform but his strength is not so great as to keep the cages at a significant distance, and if you rely on it, you will simply waste money and the bonus.
Solving the problem of free attemptsThere is Donat in the game but it's not as hard as it may seem at first glance. If you run out of attempts and have no desire to spend money to buy them, just put the game aside for ten minutes (you can even leave it for that time), after which you will have three more hearts. Should you allow the game to rest a little longer, you will get a few more hearts.
ResumeThe graphics in the game are cartoon and does not cause negative thoughts - that is, their quality is quite acceptable. The sound is pretty good as well but very loud even at minimum settings of the sound level. This is particularly evident in situations when the cages with the little animals are falling from the platform. In general, the game is pretty fun, and fans of arcade games with the logical bias will love it.
