[prMac.com] Stargard, Poland - Anawiki Games is delighted to announce the iOS release of Avalon Legends Solitaire 2 - solitaire for the modern gamer! Anawiki has taken the time-tested formula of its previous solitaire titles - Seven Seas Solitaire, Soccer Cup Solitaire and the original Avalon Legends Solitaire - and wrapped it up in a progress-based metagame, for a solitaire experience like you've never seen before.
The desktop version of Avalon Legends Solitaire was a smash hit when it was released back in April, and now you can play on the go, on smartphone or tablet! Just search for "Avalon Legends Solitaire 2" on the iOS App Store.
"The idea behind the original Avalon Legends Solitaire was to take two things that have always worked well for us - the Avalon setting, and solitaire games - and blend them together," says Roman Budzowski, Anawiki owner and lead developer, "It seemed like a sure recipe for a hit, and sure enough, the game did well, so we knew we'd have to do a sequel sooner or later."
King Arthur's men have rebelled the invading goblin army, but Camelot lies in ruins in the aftermath of the epic battle. Arthur has taken the fight to the Goblin King, leaving the Royal Druid Mallard to rebuild Camelot with the assistance of Merlin, Lady Guinevere and other trusted members of his court.
Taking on the role of Mallard, you must gather resources through skilful use of the magic cards in order to restore the kingdom to its former glory. The structures you build will, in turn, help you to produce and convert resources and purchase power-ups.
Although the solitaire mechanics stick close to the model established by the first game, Avalon Legends Solitaire 2 introduces a great deal more gameplay in between the levels.
"After the original Avalon Legends Solitaire, we did another solitaire game in a different setting, called Seven Seas Solitaire," explains Budzowski, "One thing we discovered through that game is that players really enjoy building things, so we decided to bring that back into the Avalon world, but in an even more central way. Building is really the primary objective of the game now, and playing solitaire is how you do that."
To save Camelot, you're going to have to gather the necessary resources: Gold, Food and Materials. You'll earn these resources by beating the game's 300 levels of solitaire and getting as many stars as you can. Then you'll have to prioritize your reconstruction efforts; the buildings are not merely cosmetic upgrades to the kingdom screen, but provide tangible benefits, producing additional resources, allowing the purchase of power-ups and more!
Speaking of power-ups, there are a total of 24 different ones available to purchase using the gold you collect, or trade for at the market. Each puts a unique spin on the classic solitaire mechanics, making for a game which evolves as you progress.
You're going to need those power-ups too, because the later levels don't mess around. Anawiki has used computer simulations to design the game's levels to fit a steady but fair difficulty curve which keeps pace with the player's progress. You can repeat a given level any number of times, but if you want to three-star every level, you'll have your work cut out for you.
Avalon Legends Solitaire 2 was a year and a half in the making, and the effort shows. All the game's graphics have been produced in beautiful hi-res, bringing Avalon to life on your Retina device, while the game's storyline and character dialogue provides entertainment between solitaire sessions.
