Zamby And The Mystical Crystals Released For OS X
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Kristanix Games has just released Zamby and the Mystical Crystals, a new fantasy puzzle game for Mac OS X and Windows. The goal of this non-violent game is to use logic, stealth, guile, and imagination to guide Zamby through a wondrous world of light crystals, monsters, and obstacles. Zamby features 150 increasingly difficult logic puzzle levels and a built-in level editor.
Like all Qwonks, Zamby needs light crystals to illuminate his underground cave. He sets out to explore his vast world, and collect as many crystals as possible. Zamby runs on Mac OS X 10.3 and up, costs $19.95(US) for a single user license, and is available now from the Kristanix website. You can download a free trial version of Zamby that includes 16 levels designed for adult puzzle-solvers, and 12 levels designed especially for kids.
The game's simple interface allows children and adults to begin playing the game immediately. Guiding Zamby through the game's 150 increasingly difficult levels, however, requires moving objects, building bridges, trapping monsters, and using logic to solve each level of the journey. Throughout the exciting encounter, Zamby discovers new things about his mystical terrain, and the challenges in his path.
At any point in the game, you can ask for hints, watch a movie on how to solve that level, or undo any number of moves that you've already made. The game's clever logic, intricate puzzles, and professionally produced artwork and music make your journey exciting.
In addition to the huge library of puzzle levels, the program's built-in level editor lets you build your own challenges. With all of the objects and monsters that the game offers, you can create custom levels that are tailored to your family and friends' tastes. In the coming months, game players will be able to share their custom game levels with each other, on the Zamby web site.
Whether you're a casual game player who is bored with mindless shoot-em-up games, a parent who wants an intelligent game that the entire family can enjoy, or an educator who wants to find more ways to use the computer to develop your kids' problem-solving skills, Zamby and the Mystical Crystals will provide you with hours and hours of challenging fun.
