Underwater The Game 2 is a match 3 bejewelled-inspired take on the classic puyo puyo formula that is completely gesture based. Set in the bottom of the ocean, players need to match up like-coloured jelly fish as they fall from the top of the screen to uncover the image hidden in the background.

The game controls are all located in an action bar at the bottom of the screen where players have the option to move the jelly fish left or right, drop the jellyfish or shuffle the colours of the jellyfish. Players also have the option to use accelerometer controls (tilt, tap and shake) if they prefer. The game offers three different modes; Story Mode, Score Mode and Harvest Mode which should be more than enough content to please fans of the genre, although don't expect to find anything refreshing here if you've already spent many a late night clicking away at jewels.

The game's oceanic theme is evident and effective throughout each level however the main focus of gameplay; the jellyfish themselves, aren't nearly as sharp or appealing as their surroundings. The sound is also as equally important in conveying the theme, and manages to do so swimmingly, if you'll forgive the pun.

Underwater The Game 2 shows that Game Era has clearly learned from the mistakes of their past endeavour and improved this latest instalment right across the board. The game will satisfy and excite players of any age and offers great re-playability even for those who aren't typically a fan of this style of game.
