Review FRAMED 2

Brandon Girod
9.0Excellent
Novel but fun puzzle mechanics, unique art style, great performance
Relies too much on trial and error
If you’re tired of the same one-dimensional puzzle games that frequent Google’s Play Store then you might have to fork over some cash. Framed 2 for Android is a noir themed puzzle game that has you rearranging comic book panels as a story plays out inside of each of them. It’s a game that starts off basic but ends up becoming an experience of trial and error.
The game’s theme is steep with mystery. Who is your character? What’s in the briefcase he is carrying and why is he being followed? These are answers you won’t get within the first few levels. You have to spend time playing through the game to progress the story and uncover its secrets. This game happens to be a follow up to last year’s games and the events that take place follow the original game’s plot directly. So if you’re familiar with the first game, you’ll have some idea of what’s going on.
Gameplay is fun but also a bit frustrating. There is no tutorial system in place, so if you’re new to the franchise, you have to figure out what’s happening yourself. Fortunately, that’s a pretty easy task. The idea is that story elements and puzzles play out in randomized panels or frames. Your job is to put them in an order so that your character can progress. The challenging part of the game is figuring out what each frame does. This is where the system of trial and error comes into place. Since you can’t be sure of what’s going to happen in each frame, you have to test them to find out. This is the most frustrating part of the game.
Overall, I found Framed 2 to be a very intriguing and inquisitive game. It’s not an easy puzzle game and I think that’s a strength when so many puzzle games on mobile platforms don’t have the level of sophistication this game does.
