I haven't played them before, but I'm assuming that the second one is better.

* PW2 has one achievement bugged (see worldwide statistics) [fixed]
* PW2 link-a-pix needs scrolling (very annoying) even when it's not bigger than the link-a-pix in PW1
* Reward animations take twice as long = twice as annoying,with mandatory wheel-spin and all
* 4 new puzzle types
* only British English (PW1 had American/British/4 other languages)
* same "basic" gameplay ;-P

I agree, it really needs scrolling...-_-

Could you explain why?

In PW-2 the change to the Link-Pix is unforgiveable. It makes it 90% less fun to play looking at only a portion of the screen.

Also Fit-Word in PW-2 has been changed to make you drag and drop the words into spaces. Rather than type the letters in. Which makes it about 1/4 of the fun too in my opinion.

The new puzzles types in PW-2 do add a bit more variety though.
And I personally love the spin-the-wheel idea for bonus hint tokens. Rather than the boring old parcel pick thing from PW-1

They're about as good as each other on balance.

*edit.. Although now having done that wheel spin thing a few times. It does seem to give the '10' hint reward way more often than the 50% of the board would suggest. I reckon I get 10 more like 80-90% of the time.

*further edit*
Okay I've played it for a lot longer now. And I must have just got unlucky for the first hour. It definitely gives the other prizes regularly enough.

Attention: BROKEN achievement has been REMOVED by steam support, so if it was the only reason you would not buy this game, its gone. In my opinion, even with some flaws, the game is good. Link-a-pix scrolling is annoying but is pretty good for bigger puzzles.

Thanks for the heads up re: the achievement!
I'm not really a big fan of this game, but it's ok to play for the achievements. :-P

I bought both since they are only $0.49 right now. However I can't get PW1 to load (made a post about the issue in the PW1 boards). PW2 loads up just fine for me. What I've played of PW2 atm is fun though.

Having played PW2 for a bit longer now I sort of prefer it.

The fact that you have access to unlimited hint tokens by replaying the bonus puzzles makes the annoying Link Pix puzzles a lot easier. Because you can just fill in all the easy lines, then spam hints to fill in loads more lines until it's easier to finish.

My comment in the earlier post about Fitword being less fun has also changed after playing a few of them. I've got used to dragging and dropping the words in that now and don't mind the change.

And my least favorite puzzle type from PW1 (codeword) is not in PW2.
