Alundra 2: The Mystery of Machinevolution is an action/puzzle video game developed by Contrail and published by Activision. It was released in Japan in 1999 and in North America and Europe in the next year. Unlike its predecessor, Alundra, Alundra 2 features a new 3D look which opens up a new world of puzzles. Because of its 3D look, rather simple plot, and the fact it has nothing to do with its predecessor apart from the name, Alundra 2 was not well received. No further Alundra titles were made, most likely because of Alundra 2's poor reception.
