The premise of 7 Wonders II is simply that players must travel to seven locations around the world, and help workers construct wondrous buildings, monuments and structures, such as Stone Henge, The Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat and the Shwedagon Pagoda.
The game consists to switch adjacent symbols to make matches of three or more, barring the ability to swap without forming a combination. With bigger combinations, you get power-ups that clear larger areas; those available here differ from the original, but not drastically. The swapping symbols are runes placed above tiles – destroy the rune and you eliminate the tile, and it's your job to make sure that each area is tile-free.
After a stage has reached its conclusion, players have a certain amount of building blocks to use in order to work towards securing the final piece of the next Wonder of the World. During play, whilst in the middle of clearing groups of coloured tiles, pieces of map are sometimes uncovered and when all the required pieces have been found and a map is finally completed, you are whisked away to a situation where said map appears on-screen and must cleverly be navigated to the bottom of the pile by clearing a path through the coloured runes in the set number of moves attributed. The graphics are not the best, but it's cute and well built, so that, in the side of the main map, depending on the "wonder" who is going to build, there is a small piece of history to read, to make "discovery "even more tempting. As you level up it gets harder as time in which to complete the level remains the same. There are several bonuses that will come in handy, but that will disappear when we're going to climb again the seven wonders.
