Pandemonium 2 is a continuation of the popular arcade and platform game, which originally appeared on Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn consoles in 1996. The second part of the game is the result of renewed cooperation between Toys for Bob and Crystal Dynamics. Unlike the original, the production appeared only on Sony console and popular PCs.

The main characters of the game are known from the first installment of the series: the sorceress Nikki and clown Fergus. The plot revolves around the mystery of the "comet of unlimited possibilities", which flies over the land of Lyr once in 300 years, giving residents a unique opportunity to take advantage of its magical power. It turns out, however, that the evil queen Zorrsch is also interested in the comet and she will be the main antagonist of our heroes.

In Pandemonium 2 the mechanics of the game did not change much, and the action is still observed from the perspective of 2.5D. This means that despite the fully three-dimensional luminaire, we can only move along pre-established paths, just like in the classic two-dimensional platforms. Before each stage of the game, we have the possibility to choose one of the two heroes, who differ from each other in terms of skills (for each of them there is also a slightly different ending). During the game we also collect various power-ups, thanks to which we gain additional abilities, such as the ability to throw fireballs or temporary immortality.

At each level we can also collect treasures, and after completing at least 80%, we get access to a special bonus stage. It consists in escaping from the whirlwind chasing us, during which luckily it is much harder to die than in the proper game. However, the authors of Pandemonium 2 did not tempted to add points of the game, so again, as in the original, we resume the game with the use of special codes.
