'7 Wonders II' (NDS) - New Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 24, 2009 @ 6:34 a.m. PDT

7 Wonders II offers Match 3 gameplay, one of the most popular game genres today that requires players to match or swap items into groups of 3 or more for fast and fun puzzle gaming.

Set against a backdrop of forgotten cities, hidden treasure and ancient relics, players must use the stylus to drag the coloured tiles across the game board and make matching sets before the time runs out.

Casual gamers and fans of the original PC version can now experience the new look and feel of 7 Wonders II on the handheld format. Each level features a playing field covered in up to seven different types of ancient symbols, representing The Seven Wonders of the Forgotten World. Set against a backdrop of forgotten cities, hidden treasure and ancient relics, players must use the stylus to drag the coloured tiles across the game board and make matching sets before the time runs out.

7 Wonders II features a number of power-ups and bonuses that can be collected along the way to help gamers complete challenges quickly. Power-ups include an Ice Ball, earned by matching four symbols and used for removing tiles in a horizontal line. Similarly, the Fire Ball eliminates icons vertically and horizontally after five tiles are linked. Bonuses are gained by dropping building blocks onto certain marked squares. A Clock Stopper bonus freezes time for 20 seconds and a Chameleon bonus can change the colour of any icon on the grid.


Players can compete in Story Mode, building each of the Seven Wonders in turn, or Free Play Mode, starting from any level already completed in Story Mode. The Seven Wonders of the Forgotten World that need to be built are Stonehenge, the Colosseum, the Taj Mahal, the Shwedagon Pagoda, Angkor Wat, the Great Wall of China and the Moai Statues.

Secret Challenge Levels can also be unlocked by matching tiles surrounded by coloured borders with other symbols of the same colour. This reveals pieces of a secret map and when all the parts have been collected players are taken to a bonus level. When all seven Secret Challenge Levels are finished then an eighth wonder is revealed….
