| June 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

Framed 2 for iPhone is a fun puzzler with an interesting concept. It is a noir puzzle game where you re-arrange panels of an animated comic book to change the outcome of the story. As you move the panels, an interesting story unravels in front of you. The app may be downloaded for $4.99 from iTunes.

Rearrange Panels

In Framed 2 iPhone game, use your puzzle solving skills to rearrange and rotate panels, interact with the environment, and get our mysterious characters from the starting point to the finishing point safely. You will be surprised to see the story unfolding before your eyes. As mentioned, there is no unique solution to the puzzle. The story changes based on how you rearrange the panels. So it goes without mention that the game has tremendous replay-ability value, something you all expect from a paid game. The things on screen take place before the events of the original game – Hideo Kojima’s 2014 Game of the Year, FRAMED. You can watch the cut scenes unfold and reveal the story, all without saying a word. As you play Framed 2 for iPhone, there are hidden polaroids to collect throughout the stages. It is an easy process though; simply run across the polaroids to ‘collect’ them. This also adds replay value to the game, especially if you are a completionist.

In terms of design, the noir style graphic novel artwork looks fantastic. Even though everything is rendered in 2D, at times it feels like 3-D because of how the panels are angled and later transition into each other. The different environments that you’ll come across are detailed and realistically textured. Animations are silky smooth. Its atmospheric jazz soundtrack is fairly immersive as well. However, you don’t have any option to turn off the jazz soundtrack, in case you’re not a fan of this genre of music. Performance wise, the app is slick and responsive. Framed 2 app requires iOS 9.0+.


Framed 2 iPhone game app have not changed much from its predecessor. It still got the noir style graphic novel artwork while the brilliant 2D rendering that feels like 3D at times stands out. Since the way you re-arrange the panels change the outcome of the story, no two attempts feel monotonous. Collecting the polaroids add to the fun. The background score is fairly immersive, even though you don’t get an option to turn it off. The game is also pretty stable. Overall, a nice and interactive puzzle game with lots of replay value. Check it out if you’d loved its predecessor, Framed.
