The Ancients' Tome

I must declare before anything else - that this game is very experimental. Meaning, some love it, some hate it. But at heart, it is an arcade puzzle. "Puzzle" thematically, not conceptually.

Developer Notes:
My second accomplishment. The game was originally created for the GMG's two-room contest, where it earned for me a second place.

Generally, it's an arcade-style game, considerably fast-paced. I shall avoid revealing too much as many things within this game are meant to be discovered before they may be appreciated. This is a game that demands your attention if you want to play it through to the end.

It's rather laconic; you'll have depend much on your inference. It has been a challenge working on this idea, and I am rather pleased with how it has turned out. This was developed for the more patient, sophisticated player in mind. Enjoy.

Thank you to those who have supported its development.

Enjoyable game dude, and interesting design concept as well. Will take a few more goes I think before I figure out the vocabulary properly :)

Wow! This game is great! Both innovative and fun to play. The graphics are cool too.
I really enjoyed it, the only disappointment I had was when it ended.
Perhaps you never work again on a game after it's finished/released but a "survival" level enabled after the game's completion by the player would be really cool. It would enable challenging between players too, "Wo will make the greater score?"
