Wyv and Keep: The Temple of the Lost Idol
stars title characters Wyv and Keep, two explorers in search of legendary treasures. Their latest quest finds them in Amazonia, a temple-dotted jungle said to contain treasures beyond imagination.
Gameplay is incredibly straightforward. Playing as both Wyv and Keep, you navigate single-screen levels attempting to solve puzzles. The game is separated into several areas, each with a room you need to solve to pass to the next. Depending on how quickly you discover a solution, rooms usually donít take very long at all, though a few late-game puzzles require multiple restarts. Most puzzles involve pushing boxes, usually to either hold down buttons or create pathways. Some of the more complicated ones add a timing mechanism as well.
Every room offers two goals, lowering or upping the challenge level. Simply going for the exit is the easier of the two, though players who want a challenge can attempt to collect every treasure in the room. Doing so usually requires completely different approaches to each puzzle, most of which require extensive trial-and-error.
Collecting everything is a great goal, though it goes unrewarded. You are timed and scored on each puzzle, though the score doesnít mean much unless you want bragging rights or for personal satisfaction.
The game also ships with Cartographer, a level editor that lets you build you own levels.
