Alundra 2 - A new legend begins

Alundra 2: The Mystery of Machinevolution is an action/puzzle video game developed by Contrail and published by Activision. It was released in Japan in 1999 and in North America and Europe in the next year. Unlike its predecessor, Alundra, Alundra 2 features a new 3D look which opens up a new world of puzzles. Because of its 3D look, rather simple plot, and the fact it has nothing to do with its predecessor apart from the name, Alundra 2 was not well received. No further Alundra titles were made, most likely because of Alundra 2's poor reception.
Alundra 2's story is set in the kingdom of Varuna. A powerful sorcerer Mephisto is using magical wind-up keys to control humans and turn animals into powerful killing machines. You plAy Flint, a young hero and Pirate Hunter who is wanted for some reason, and is after the pirates that caused his parent's death.
Within a treacherous climate of ambition and greed, Varuna's semi-deposed princess seeks the services of a warrior. The king's been replaced by a wooden puppet, and now the only way to set things right is to hack and slash your way though hordes of clockwork enemies, pirates, and other nasty creatures dreamed up by the dastardly Mephisto. Players switch off between the ex-pirate hunter, Flint, and the princess Alexia as they hack through multiple 3D dungeons and levels, to square off against bosses in a side-scrolling combat mode reminiscent of the major battles in Sword of Vermilion.
Exploration rewards you with special items and ultimately the ability to invoke special elemental powers, like the ability to float in the air, freeze enemies, drop rocks on their heads, or light up the lives of those around you with the fire elemental ring. Other items will heal you, tell which way to go, and boost your attack strength.
Told through frequent real-time cinema sequences, Alundra 2 focuses on a lighter storyline than Alundra did, so expect a few double takes, sight gags, and other humorous moments. The graphics are consistent across the cut-scene sequences and in the game itself, with an intentionally simplistic cartoon look that allows the game to move quickly as you explore the dungeons. So, when the time comes to make your point, stick it to your enemies with the giant sword! Alundra 2 offers adventure for fans of overhead-action role-playing.
