Kuros - Save The World
Kuros is a newly released adventure game from Sandlot Games. You are the only one to save the world from an end. You are not only to do that but als to find out first who and where you are and what to do next.
You play as Katya who is the one to correct what somebody has done by tampering with the glyphstones that keep the world in balance.
Things are not that easy because you start the game having no idea what's going on. So this whould be the first task to accomplish to then be able get to the more important thing like saving the world.
Kuros is the world where the glyphs are kept. You are to go a number of locations in five elemental lands: wood, fire, water, ice, and metal, trying to find items to help you sole the puzzles.
Most of the times that would be map pieces that you need to proceed in the game to a new location. There are also different power-ups to help you on your way like chromatic lenses and scrying orbs.
There are guardians in every land but don't expect free help from them. You'll have to find ten seeds scattered throughout the wood land, figure out how to forge an orichalcum rod, restore life to a field of wilted metal lilies, just to name a few.
The puzzles in Kuros are varied, both in type and in difficulty, colorful and clever. Whether you're reconnecting pipes, guiding a ball through a maze, or figuring out the correct pattern of crystals, the puzzles of Kuros are never boring or repetitious.
Your final task before leaving a land is restoring its glyphstone. After you clear away the detritus that surrounds it, you'll have to complete the inscription carved into its face by figuring out the pattern of symbols. This is the one area of Kuros that may frustrate some players.
The patterns are logical, but if you can't tune into the particular sense that they make, this part of the game can be a bit of a roadblock. The glyph puzzles can be solved just with trial and error, but they reset after three wrong guesses, so it's faster to try and figure it out the proper way.
Kuros has smart puzzles, gorgeous graphics, amusing characters and decent voice acting. It's a wonderfully entertaining journey and it's over far, far too quickly.
