Zenonia fans have been waiting a long time for the release of the sequel. The original Zenonia game from GameVil was dubbed the alpha and omega of RPGs for the iPhone. It offered an action based throwback to the days of the SNES and a link to the past. This week, Zenonia 2 has been released and is taking the app store by storm. The question is: Can the game live up to the hype?
For starters, Zenonia 2 uses the formula of the original game. The same action based gameplay, zany characters and an old school feel. This time however, several improvements have been made to the structure of the game. The greatest weakness in the original game has been addressed. What was once a strictly D-pad controlled game with just a few touch options, has been vastly enhanced with even more touch options and menus putting the iPhones capacitive display to real use. It needs a little getting used to, but I believe the touch changes are for the better.
