Karoshi 2.0 is more of what the first game already offered, but the puzzles this time are much more about different/unusual solutions then they are about shoving crates. I must say I'm very happy with the game, and it includes some really clever puzzles (esspecially the final few levels).
Complaints about Karoshi 1 were that the graphics weren't always that great, and that the game was too short. The sequel has a lot more levels (and is actually even longer than you think...) and I've done my best this time to make sure the presentation is great and that all graphics fit together.
- 42 levels
- Boss sequence that is well... I don't want to spoil it.
- Level editor (12 custom levels included too)
- Karoshi 1 speedrun mode
The level editor is very easy and straight forward to use, and levels can be saved as .lvl files. You can also copy the code and post it on the forums, and other people can paste that into the game.
Karoshi 1 Speedrun mode
I noticed replaying Karoshi 1 was pretty fun, and many other people liked that too. Therefore, I included this mode, in which you have seven minutes (yes, a hint at Virtanen's game) to complete all levels. You can even try to beat my score (which is 2:04 time left).
Update: tjp7154 has beaten my record with 2:41 left, a difference of 37 seconds! Amazing. He even made a nice vid of it.
Watch and learn:
Well are you?
This level is not as simple as it looks.

Have fun, and please let me know what you think. : )
Also, if you haven't played Karoshi 1 yet, you can find the topic here.
However, it is not necessary to have played it before you start Karoshi 2.0. (Unless you play the speedrun mode perhaps).
Because I know people will ask:
"Karoshi" is japanese and means "death from overwork".
"mo-ichi-do" means "one more time".
If you get really stuck, you can find a walkthrough on IndieFAQS.
