Description

Urban 2 is a puzzle board game, an enhanced Windows version of Urban, released in 1997. The background of the game remains unchanged. Urban and Marf walked along the beach at night. Suddenly Urban sank into the ground. Two mysterious figures commanded him to pass the maze in black glasses. Marf became his eyes.

Using the blocks the player must protect his friend from death and allow him to get out of the maze. After setting blocks Urban starts continuous march by a defined direction - a) if he can't go ahead, he turns to the right, b) if he can't turn right, he turns left, c) if he can't turn neither to the right nor to the left, he returns. The exit doors open after collecting all the mushrooms. The player may use two types of blocks - solid or disappearing under the touch. Each level of the maze consists of a few chambers. To get to the next level of the maze, it is necessary to find the key. Urban must avoid the poisonous mushrooms, electricity and bottomless holes. Contact with them means an instant death. Electricity can be turned off by a switch, a bottomless pit can be covered by a block. The game includes numerous additional components, such as: spring (sends two squares forward), teleport (moves to another part of the board), arrow (allows you to move only in designated direction), lever (changes the direction of the arrows), crossroads (send in the desired direction), crown (turns off most of the obstacles), trolley (transports to the end of the track).

The second part of Urban introduces two difficulty levels: standard and expert. Expert level is equal with old Urban gameplay. Standard level features unlimited number of blocks with minimal blocks indicator needed to complete the chamber. WARX system was not implemented. With the new difficulty level some graphics tweaks were introduced, including new status bar, modified main chamber, entrance tunnel, animation and Urban look. Another novelty is a possibility to pause the game.

Urban 2 consist of 102 boards all together, along with 9 available in free of charge shareware version and next 93 in full edition of the game. The game has built in chambers editor. The game was released in two languages: English and Polish.
