Namco's match-three Puzzle Quest 2 updated with multiplayer

Retina display support included

Namco’s high Qi scoring Puzzle Quest 2 dropped onto Apple’s digital marketplace in December 2010, combining elements of role-playing with strategy and puzzling.

Cast as a barbarian, sorcerer, templar, or assassin, your mission is to match at least three gems in order to gain mana, action points, or to damage the enemy.

Should you get particularly proficient at all that, you’ll quickly be able to cast spells, earn treasure, and buy new weapons.

Thanks to my favourite kind of demand - popular – Namco has upped the Puzzle Quest 2 ante by introducing online (via Game Center) and local multiplayer into the bargain.

Retina display support has also been included as part of the much anticipated update, making the fantasy world of dungeons and catacombs pop and zing with greater clarity.

Were the powers that be at Quality Index HQ to revisit the Top 5 match-three puzzlers on iPhone, by the way, Namco’s gem would no doubt figure prominently in the shake-up.

As it stands, mind, IGN is delighted that Puzzle Quest 2 “takes a simple casual affair and adds layers of depth you won't be able to resist. Even though the quest is long and your customization options seem to be limitless, it still works as a game you can pick up and play for short sessions.”

Download Puzzle Quest 2 now for £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99 on your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4.
