Lovely music & graphics
Soul and Essence are two creations that come from a far-off world. Their sun is dying, and it will soon explode. The Soul leader creates a special liquid called Celatin to restore the sun's energy. When Soul and Essence begin warring, the Celatin liquid is sealed in a complex maze of puzzles to prevent it from being destroyed.
Now the war has ended, and the old Essence leader has passed away. His son (the Essence Child) now wishes to retrieve the Celatin liquid, and save their world. He teams up with the old Soul leader to design 3 coloured balls to navigate through the maze of puzzles, and find the magical liquid.
Yellow doors block your way, and you need to find keys in order to open them. You may need to switch to a different coloured ball in order to reach some keys. Once you have found a key, then any ball can use it. Teleporters give you access to different parts of the screen. There are 2 different types of teleporter. Grey teleporters can be used by any ball. Coloured teleporters can only be used by the same colour ball; only green balls can use green teleporters, only red balls can use red teleporters, and only blue balls can use blue teleporters. Walls work in a similar way to the coloured teleporters - only balls the same colour as the wall can pass through. Switches and conveyor belts are other obstacles that you must overcome.
The first level is a tutorial, showing you how to play the game. I thought this was a nice touch as it lets you get a feel for the game and teaches you how to deal with various problems. The game is controlled entirely by the keyboard, which makes things nice and straightforward. The levels have been cleverly thought out, and they really provide a challenge. Some levels are quite tricky, and you must plan ahead as to what your next move will be. If you are stuck, just press 'R' to restart that level.
I really enjoyed playing this game, but I thought that is was quite short.
Movement - Arrow keys
The game is viewed at an angle, giving it a 3D appearance. I thought this was nice, as it gave you a better view of your balls, as well as 'hidden' objects such as keys or switches.
MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS
There is a small 'speaker' icon at the top right. If you do not like the music, just click on this icon to turn it off. Click on the icon again to turn the music back on.
I highly recommend this game, so why not download it and try it for yourself? You can only gain by that.
