Legend Of The Sord

by snowyowl - Competition Entry

A short and slightly strange platforming game with equal parts puzzle-solving and exploration. Made with Game Maker 8.1, so runs on Windows.
Features abandoned laboratories, swords, and cryptic hints at a story.

The controls are explained in-game, and you can reset the current room by pressing R.

That was fun! The level design was clever, and the puzzles had just the right amount of difficulty.

Well done.

Throwing sharp things is always a good use of energy.
Good puzzling and the ending was entertaining.

Ah! Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light!

Lots of potential here.

Congrats on your submission!

Just pure awesome. Great new mechanic, fun puzzles, cute story tie-in. I got the "No time to explain" easter egg as well but the ending was still a surprise.

@Dark Acre Jack: I haven't watched that movie. the story is my own, except for the No Time To Explain references.

Really clever level design on this one! I would love to see a version built with some animation and sound in.
