Created by 10 Tons, which used to be known as Myth People, Sparkle 2 delivers the fun and strategy of all the their other games. When it comes to casual gaming, no one does it like the Finnish. This is the sequel to Sparkle, which we had reviewed her quite some time ago, and it is just as much fun. There is more of a quest line this time, as our puzzle path takes us on the hunt for five magical keys that hold the secret to world peace.
This marble popper is fast paced, and can be tricky at times. Shooting at variable tools will give you a quick fix, if you can get to them. The music is phenomenal, and you would swear that 10 Tons had put Danny Elfman on their payroll. Now, the main game graphics were great, but the graphics in the game breaks when you find the keys could have been more sharp. Still, it is as addictive and as much fun as the original, and worth the time you would put into it. If you love marble poppers and match 3 games, this is one you should try. 10 Tons has lots of other great puzzle games, too, but my favourite is still Heroes of Kalevala.
When it comes to marble popper games, they don’t get much more basic than Dragon. This follows a familiar premise of shooting marbles at a snake, or in this case, a dragon, made of small spheres of varying colours with kanji characters on them. When one marble replaces another, the one it replaced is sent back to the bottom of the chute to be used again. One has to drive the dragon back into its lair to prevent it from reaching the other end of the twisting chute that is set as its path.

Okay, I love marble poppers! They are fun, colourful, and addictive. What’s not to love? Sparkle delivers this kind of fun adventure marble popper in such a manner. With a magickal soundtrack that makes us automatically think of Tim Burton movies and Danny Elfman scores, Sparkle is fun and fast paced from the very beginning. Great little tools pop up along the track to help you out along the way. Simple basics, like backwards, slow, stop, but there are more complex tools, like purple blast, which will take out many marbles at once, revenge of the moon, which rains down light, taking our many random marbles on the track, and so many more. The old trusted colour bomb is still there, but so are fireflies and accuracy shots. Sparkle is a game you could clearly get lost in for hours, as you wind your way through the tracks that take you to magickal places to find even more ways to take out those marbles on the tracks. You also collect trophies and amulets along the way as you travel along. Sparkle is just bright fun, and a great way to unwind, but keep your brain active at the same time.
