The object of the game is simple; fly around each of the 15 levels and collect crystals. All of the achievements are story-related so by completing the game you earn the full 1000.
The controls are basic; or controls the flying and rotates the camera and and performs barrel rolls. Pressing and holding allows you to fly faster, which is helpful while playing the larger levels. The flying mechanics are simple to learn so you shouldn’t have much trouble.
Since all of the levels are unlocked from the start, you can play them in any order you wish. After the completion of each level, the game returns to the main menu so you can select the next level. Unfortunately, the game does not identify which levels have been completed. Also, if you have played the previous games, you might notice that the majority of the levels are rehashed from earlier games.
Most of the crystals are out in the open and easy to find, but there are some that are obscured from view or blend into the background making them difficult to see. Luckily, they give off a glittering effect with rotating white circles which can generally be seen from a distance (on most levels). Some of the levels are more expansive than others, too, so you may be searching for a while, but each level contains more crystals than necessary to collect. Since they are all available from the start of a level, they can be collected in any order. If you have any issues finding crystals, you can always refer to the video in The Future (85G).
New to this game is a checkpoint system. If you crash, instead of being placed back at the starting position, you are placed at the position of the last crystal collected. This makes it much less frustrating, especially on the more sizeable levels.
Aery - Calm Mind 2 follows the previous titles in this series as yet another relaxing and stress-free game. Except for the Tutorial, the feathers/crystals are relatively easy to see. The ability to speed up and the addition of a much-needed checkpoint system help immensely. Enjoy your 1000!
