Reviewed: RHEM 2

The independent game is becoming a dinosaur in the modern gaming world - ponderous, incomplete, and bordering quickly on extinct, at least as far as commercial, non-quickie titles come. With graphical and processing power in computing platforms soaring and even the simple adventure titles mostly requiring entire development teams, it can seem an almost insurmountable challenge.

Not forgotten, however, as occasionally a writer works hard and does well. Such was the fate of Knut Moeller's first title RHEM, never a graphical powerhouse but always a startlingly complex puzzle title which befuddled gamers and proved to be a long and hard title in a genre that has tended to get shorter and shorter as the years have gone by.

Following up, quite literally picking up where the last left off, is RHEM 2. Is it any good? The answer turns out to be yes - if anything, it's better constructed than the first, which shows that Mr. Moeller has learned from his first endeavor.
