Play time ~ 20 hours
The game plays much like the first one, except with much less item combining. The first game I believe is better. It seemed to have a fresh feel, whereas this sequel seems to be very similar to the first in terms of setting, atmosphere, appearance and types of puzzles. Notably, some of the puzzle mechanics are borrowed from previous Kheops titles. However, it steps away from the original game to introduce puzzles in which you play as the monkey, which is pretty nice.
I believe the fun in the first game of item combining is mostly taken away from the second game, with a few exceptions.
Overall, still a very excellent game that deserves a play-through. Again, those seeking a vivid storyline should seek elsewhere, but there is solid puzzling here. Great graphics and sound also are nice to have.
