    Gameplay Review

    Aurora Feint II: The Beginning consists of two parts, the puzzle game and the RPG strategy part. The puzzle aspect of this iPhone game is similar to Bejeweled, another popular puzzle game for iPhone. The objective of the puzzle game is to arrange three blocks in a row and keep the blocks from filling up your iPhone's screen. You can arrange blocks either horizontally or vertically by using the iPhone's accelerometer and touchscreen feature to move blocks horizontally to where you want to position them. Once you've cleared up a substantial part of the iPhone screen, you can pull up another layer or layers of blocks to continue the game.

You can play this puzzle for as long as you want and the game will not stop unless you decide to. Once you collected enough crystals and you have filled the progress bar, the game will prompt you with new challenges that you can take to learn new skills and earn weapons. This will require you to purchase blueprints from the store and then bring it to the Smith to learn the skill or earn the weapons after you have fulfilled a certain challenge. These challenges are similar to the puzzle game with some conditions. You can use the skills and weapons that you learn or earn from the Smith in the regular puzzle game for a more exciting way of arranging blocks. This varies from slowing down the movement of blocks, to having special moves in arranging the blocks to clear them out. This is the RPG-strategy part that we were talking about.

    This game for your iPhone offers tons of extras to unlock, skills to learn and weapons to earn. True to the tradition of RPG-strategy games, your game achievements in Aurora Feint II: The Beginning would make you to play this best iPhone game repeatedly.

    Game Graphics and Sound

    Another good feature of this great game for your iPhone is the well-rendered graphics. The game map is well crafted and features your typical RPG game World Map. The blocks were carefully designed as well. The animation fully utilizes the iPhone's graphics engine and the overall colorful appeal of the game would please you and make you play the game repeatedly. On the sound department, unfortunately the game doesn't offer too much variety, as most of the tracks just keeps on playing repetitively.
