It seems like just yesterday that the Georganisms collected all their weapons and fended off the attack to their fair isles. But there is no rest for the weary jelly blobs quite yet! The local volcano has erupted, and those colorful critters will once again have to literally pool (or at least smoosh) their talents to unsubmerge their homes in Georganism 2, a puzzle platformer by Karma Team.
Each level has control one or more georganism, each with a particular talent. Blue can jump, Red can swim, and Green can eat wooden blocks. The goopy trio must act together to stop the volcano from erupting by calling on the islands' spirits. The [arrow] keys control your current georganism, and [spacebar] switches between characters. If two georganisms are in close proximity, [Enter] combines them into a new creature that possesses both special talents (though a little taller). [Enter] splits the jellies apart again, allowing you to fit through tight spaces or combine with a different character. Instead of making your way to an end-of-level gong, this time you must activate at least one of the three statues hidden in each level, though finding more statues will give you a higher level rating and unlock new levels quicker. Watch out, though! All manner of blocks, switches, platforms, and ice cubes stand in your way, and should you require it, any level can be instantly restarted with [r].
Georganism 2 builds on the strengths of its predecessor, displaying puzzles that fans of the original should find challenging, but not so difficult that new players cannot jump right in. It captures that sort of teamwork-based fun that The Lost Vikings had, if simpler and much faster paced. Overall, Georganism 2 is a solid platformer that's sure to deliver your Daily Recommended Amount of blob-based excitement.
