Hello Venice 2: New York Adventure
March 04, 2014
Hello Venice 2 plays just like the first game. It is not exactly a Match 3 game since all you really do is trying to connect tiles of the same color and clear the blocks to let the water flows and fill the fountain. If you are a fan of the famous 4 Elements series, this should be the one for you as almost every aspect of this game seem to be borrowed from that masterpiece, only that Hello Venice is lighter in terms of production.
It is not that Hello Venice 2 is not fun, because it is indeed very entertaining. There are even mini-games inside the fully-packed 80 levels to mix things up a bit – otherwise, this is going to be an extremely repetitive game.
As for the graphics, they are bright and cheery. The tiles are colorful, the surroundings are beautiful and the whole presentation package is admirable. The music is charming and relaxing which suits the game well, there are no voice overs, but they are definitely not necessary due to the game’s very weak storyline.
Apart from connecting tiles and playing mini-games, you can also spend coins and spheres to decorate your house and garden. This feature has been done thousands of times before in other matching games, nonetheless, it is a pleasant addition to the game.
