Puzzle Quest 2
Puzzle Quest 2 is a video game developed by Infinite Interactive for the Nintendo DS, Xbox Live Arcade, iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, and Microsoft Windows. It was released on June 22, 2010 by D3 Publisher. A version for the PlayStation Portable was in development, but was cancelled due to sound bugs. It is the sequel to Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, and like its predecessor, it combines role-playing with strategy and puzzle elements. It uses a competitive, Bejeweled-style, "match three game" playfield to simulate combat and other activities common to role-playing games.

Puzzle Quest 2 received generally positive reviews, garnering a Metacritic score of 81% for the Xbox 360 release and 74% for the Nintendo DS release. IGN's review praised the game's combination of casual puzzle gameplay with added layers of depth and extensive single- and multiplayer modes. In his review for Eurogamer, Christian Donlan called the game's puzzle mechanics "flavourless" and its fantasy setting "bland," but stated that the game remains "frighteningly talented when it comes to targeting your compulsions." Giant Bomb's Brad Shoemaker identified the game as a return to form for Infinite Interactive after what he identified as missteps in Puzzle Quest: Galactrix and Neopets Puzzle Adventure. The PC version received positive reviews from GameSpot, which praised the addictive gameplay and from 1UP, whose review states that the game "improves on the original in almost every way."
It's questionable how accurate this is, but this is all that's known about Cyril Lachel: A struggling writer by trade, Cyril has been living off a diet of bad games, and a highly suspect amount of propaganda. Highly cynical, Cyril has taken to question what companies say and do, falling ever further into a form of delusional madness. With the help of quality games, and some greener pastures on the horizon, this back-to-basics newsman has returned to provide news so early in the morning that only insomniacs are awake. View Profile

In this puzzle-role-playing game, players match gems on a 2D puzzle board to earn points. They can then use these points to perform various skills or attacks against enemies during battles that occur alongside the puzzle solving. While the actual combat does not have a visual depiction, attacks include names such as "Crushing Kill," "Blood Drain," and "Finger of Death." Also, text in the storyline includes phrases such as "Our hero travels deep into a pit of corpses" and ". . . watch in horror as the 'odd looking one' turns on the other recruit, devouring her instantly." The words "damn," "hell," and "bastard sword" appear in the text-based dialogue. Some female characters wear revealing outfits.
Step 3Playing through the story, this is very easy and don't worry you will not get lost. If you Press RB it will bring up a map and show you were you nest quest is. This is also a gold trail on the ground to point you in the right direction so therefore like i said you wont get lost. The main Quests are shown with a Golden question mark and the other side quests are marked with a Silver question. You can accept more than one quest at a time so don't worry. You can also change what quest you want to do by pressing LB and going to the quest log and changing it from there.
This achievement speaks for itself, simply just complete the game and this achievement is yours. All main story quests are indicated with a Golden Question mark. You do not have to do the side quests to get this achievement.
ALWAYS chose "Bash" or you will not be able to obtain this achievement. Also throughout the game there are chests, some chests are guarded by monster so you have to defeat them first to be able to play the mini game for the chest very few chests only give you the option to "Bash" them I think theres only around 5-6. But if you loot them the mini-game requires you to match the symbols. While doing this you obtain money and you can also obtain rare/items. You can also use you map by pressing this lets you see what areas you have been in (these areas are coloured) before you leave the area you are in the go on to your next quest go through all the areas so you don't miss anything. Some chest are behind some monster so keep eye out for those ones.The achievement unlocks after you complete the game incase you are wondering why it didn't unlock after you bashed the last door.
This achievement is tied to a side quest you can start it by talking to Bram One-eye, the quest is called A Greater Challenge - Green Dragon. Now this battle is really hard because the Green Dragon has 1000+HP and he can do attacks that do around 50 Damage. He also uses an attack called Breath poison which takes off 3HP every turn this move lasts for a 100 turns so in theory you will die quicker. Don't let him collect to many green gems these increase his moves. Hopefully more tips on the other classes coming soon.
This is Side quest achievement, the quest is called A Greater Challenge - Yeti. You can start this mission by talking to Bram One-eye. The yeti is located in the ice caves (if I can remember) but don't worry if you are already on a quest press LB and go to Quest Log go down to the quest and click on it, then instead of the gold trail a silver one will show when playing simply follow the arrows and you will get there. This battle can be difficult I would recommend having a high defense, powerful weapons and spells that you can use to your advantage. DON'T LET THE YETI COLLECT TO MANY RED SYMBOLS because he will use a move called "Crushing kill" and this attack will take of 999HP and if you were to block it you would still die.
Galactrix Beehive Barrier: the shields in Galactrix, at least as represented on the menus.
Fake Longevity: The minigame for opening the leapgates that are used to travel between star systems. They're all closed initially, they're everywhere on both main- and side-quest paths, they have a small chance of closing after a period of time, they have a time limit, and chains that normally help you can just eat up time when you're hacking them. Finally, you don't even get any experience or other rewards by hacking them, beyond opening up a new region. Averted in the Steam/PC version. You get experience for hacking the leapgates, and you can also bypass them by using Psi points.
Grand Theft Me: Beta Prime takes over the body of Kirine Thwaites... and doesn't give it back! Or not. Nobody ever says it's a theft, after all... And if you attempt to set Beta Prime free during the endgame, she instead chooses to stay with you, under the guise of Kirine Thwaites. Kirine was Beta Prime all along!
Hard-Coded Hostility: The Soulless. Every other faction, you can win favor with the through trade. The Soulless, however, have no space ports in any of their systems.
Mega-Corp: Several, each with defining traits, while still being 'corporations'. Lumina, the religious and political capital of humanity, is not led by a CEO, but by an Emperor. Trident, a weapons company structured more like a military, complete with generals. The MRI, a faction dedicated to furthering Psionic potential in humans. And Cytech, who do robotics. And not much else. Not surprisingly, Cytech is EASILY the least bastardly of the 4.
Multiple Endings: Just a minor one, but a choice at the end affects one thing and determines whether you get a epilogue about Humans Are Special or Humans Are Bastards.
Omniscient Morality License: Apparently trying to save the galaxy justifies all manner of atrocities. All manner being about two.
Shout-Out: ED24 is clearly inspired by Marvin from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Puzzle Chronicles Barbarian Hero: The protagonist is a paper-thin Conan imitation. In fact, the whole game is basically one long homage to Conan. Including the snake cult!
The Beastmaster: The protagonist's spells in this game come from your warbeast (a nasty-looking dog).
Loads and Loads of Loading: The PSP version of the game had ten-second loading screens even when you opened up the menu to look at your equipment loadout!
Reptiles Are Abhorrent: One of your enemies is a cult of evil snake-men.
Ring-Out Boss: Every fight is a ring out fight. Instead of hit points like in other Puzzle Quest games, destroying skulls pushes your side of the puzzle block towards the opponent, leaving them with less and less room to match gems with. If they run out of space, they lose.
Puzzle Kingdoms Artifact of Doom: The various Vice Boxes, given out to the leaders of each kingdom, designed to make it difficult to recover the famine (e.g. the box of gluttony causes the leaders to want all the food for themselves.)
A Commander Is You: The battles are your army against the opponent's army, rather than one-on-one battles as in Puzzle Quest.
Cap: Each kingdom has a point cap. Note that some of your heroes gain points as they gain levels, and therefore sometimes no longer fit in the cap.
Defeat Means Friendship: In various kingdoms, defeated lords can be recruited to your party.
Insistent Terminology:Priestess: Greetings, Your Majesty.Player: Please don't call me "Your Majesty."Priestess: As you wish, Your Majesty.
Lazy Backup: You can only take four Heroes and four different units into a territory, no matter how many of each you have in in your party.
My Rules Are Not Your Rules: The Computer utterly ignores the rules regarding item equipping, including the point cap and equipping more than one item of the same category.
One-Hit Kill: A sufficiently high-level Magic unit can wipe out a lower-level enemy party with one attack.
Straight for the Commander: Defeating the named enemies on will win the kingdom being attacked, and ends the conquest, Only awards gold from directly conquered locations in said map, and it's also not possible to capture each location on some of the kingdoms.
Strong Flesh, Weak Steel: Unarmored peasants have higher defensive stats than Battering Rams and Catapults.
Timed Mission: New recruits from the tavern require matching a set number of blocks within a time limit (the range normally being around 60-75 seconds).
You Require More Vespene Gas: You need gold to acquire and replace different units, as well as gain new artifacts, relics, and spells.
