Puzzle Quest 2 Enemies:
From Arch Lichs to Owl Bears and beyond, there are more than 70 types of enemies and unique enemy characters designed for battle in Puzzle Quest 2 – and if you think you’ve seen them all before, think again. Here is a smattering of the bad, the strange, and the ugly enemies found lurking in the tunnels and chambers of Puzzle Quest 2.
Dark Orcs (The Bad)
Level Range: 15 to 40
Special Attacks: Enrage, Pummel, Darkness
Strong, tough, and uncompromising warriors, Orcs have waged long wars against the people of Etheria. The Dark Orc will use his Enrage Spell to create more red gems and then follow it with the pummel spell which does 1 point of damage for every red gem on the board.
The Dark Orc also has the staple spell “Darkness” which enables him to convert all red and yellow gems to purple.
Rakshasa (The Strange)
Level Range: 7 to 40
Special Attacks: Stealth, Freezing Strike, Darkness
He may look a bit like a certain Tiger from the cover of a certain cereal box, but he is the stuff of nightmares. Rakshasa hunts children, stealing them from their beds in the dead of night. You’ll first learn of this creature from Gess, a girl in the village who fears the “Cat Man”. Rakshasa has a “freezing strike” spell that converts all blue mana tiles on the puzzle board to purple mana, and deals one point of damage for every tile converted. You can find Rakshasa hiding in a remote room in the first level of the dungeon, defeat him, and return to Gess to complete this side quest and put the girls’ fears to rest.
Cockatrice (The Ugly)
Level Range: 5 to 30
Special Attacks: Bellowing Crow, Petrifying Gaze
If you’ve come to snuff the rooster, you’re only prepared for half the job against the Cockatrice –
One truly hideous hybrid between a rooster and a lizard. The Cockatrice delivers a standard claw attack and also has two fairly powerful magic attacks, Bellowing Crow and Petrifying Gaze. The latter turn its opponents to stone (no doubt drawing its power from its own sheer ugliness) prohibiting them from moving for 4 turns. Apparently, the Cockatrice does not taste like chicken, and did we mention this is one really ugly creature? You have been warned.
Gelatinous Cube (Something Beyond Ugly)
Level Range: 6 – 31
Special Attacks: Slime, Engulf
Don’t let looks fool you this time as slow sometimes wins the race. The Gelatinous Cube is mindless yet fearsome as it’s fully able to engulf an opponent with its acidic gelatinous forms. It will make you look at mom’s jell-o in a whole different way after finishing this battle.
In the tradition of the original Puzzle Quest – Puzzle Quest 2 combines an easy-to-play match-3-based puzzle system with the a compelling fantasy adventure and strategic turn-based combat found at the heart of all great role-playing games.
