Manuganu 2 jumps into Windows Phone and Android one month after iOS release

If you enjoyed playing Manuganu, a fun 3D platform game we've reviewed last year, then you're going to love the sequel. Manuganu 2 brings back many features from the original, but adds new ways of getting around. You run, jump, roll, fly, and swim to the end of each level while dodging obstacles and enemies. It has been available on iOS for about a month, and has just been released for Windows Phone and Android devices.

We've installed it on our Nokia Lumia 930. Head past the break to watch some gameplay on video.

There's no separate section for tutorial, but the first few levels explain the game mechanics. The main character, Manuganu, is endlessly running and you have to press the action button on the right to make him jump, fly, or swim, depending on the level. It's very easy to control. On the left side of the screen is a halt button. Use this button to make Manuganu stop immediately. It's useful for dodging enemies or avoiding getting crushed by obstacles, but you can't hold this button too long if you want to earn stars.

Manuganu 2 has 40 levels available with four boss levels. At the end of each level you can earn up to three stars depending on items you've collected and the amount of time it took to finish the level. Try to collect all the items along the stages to win extra awards. There are alternative paths to choose from so you may want to try levels more than once to see if you've missed anything.

Manuganu 2 costs 99 cents from the Windows Phone Store, but there's also a free trial available if you don't feel like spending any money. We really like this game. It has the right amount of difficulty. It's not too easy or too frustratingly difficult. The graphics also look great. Try it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for the tip, Mohamed A.!
