Review: Assemblage 2

Pick-up-and-play games seem to be a dime a dozen in the ever-expanding App Store.  It’s nearly impossible to stand out nowadays.  Assemblage 2 isn’t incredibly unique nor is it a game changer by any means.  What it is, however, is an extremely fun game that will provide you with hours of enjoyment.

Like most successful App Store games, Assemblage 2 is simple and very easy to learn.  With each level, you have a variety of shapes that you have to stack.  Once you put all of the shapes into play, a five-second timer counts down to zero.  If all of the pieces stay in tact for the five seconds, the level is complete.  If just one falls out of place and off of the board, you must restart the level.

In what I’m sure is a move inspired by the Angry Birds phenomenon, each level features three stars.  When you are building your “tower,” you will come in to contact with these stars.  You are awarded any stars that your tower is touching when the level is complete.

There are 100 total levels spread across four difficulty levels.  Between that and the 300 possible stars to achieve, this isn’t a game you will finish in one sitting.

Graphics should not be the focal point of a game like this.  But, with that said, what is here gets the job done nicely.  The objects you control have a face, hands, and feet.  They also make facial expressions when you move them around.  The graphics definitely won’t bring anyone new to the game, but they are quite nice for those who stick around to enjoy them.

All things considered, along with the price being only $0.99, I highly recommend Assemblage 2.  It’s a fun little game to sit down and play for a while, or even just for a few minutes when you want to knock off a couple of levels and have some time to spare.

Assemblage 2 is available now in the App Store for $0.99.
