The environments are both interactive (swing on poles) and destructible (knock down poles), and each character interacts with everything differently. Big characters, for example, are less inclined to swing on poles and more likely to rip them out of the ground and hit you with them.
Power Stone 2 builds on the first game by adding four-player combat, upgraded levels and new gameplay modes including an adventure mode and item shop, where new weapons can be created. The levels are multi-tiered and contain scripted events, such as an Indiana Jones-style stone ball that chases you and your opponents through an Egyptian-like tomb. Although Power Stone 2 is all about four player competition, a 1-on-1 story mode is available if you prefer less chaotic battles.
