Spirits of Elduurn

DoraIn Califer Games' simple yet gorgeous little puzzle game Spirits of Elduurn, you control two excitable little spirits who think they've found a new home, only to discover it's chock full of nasty demons made from dark energy, which has happened to me at least twice before while house hunting. Using the [arrow] keys, which moves both spirits at the same time, your job is to guide your two spunky critters around the level, picking up all the glowing sparks and then moving your light spirit into the demon to banish it. The problem is that while both your light and dark spirits can pick up the sparks, only the dark spirit can cross the purple voids, and will actually slide across all adjacent ones in the direction you move. If the light spirit touches those voids it'll be destroyed, and if either spirit touches the Swirling Red Level Boundary of Doom (tm), they'll vanish, so you need to plan your path to make it through each level safely, and in as few moves as possible. Press [M] to mute, and [S] to skip a level when the prompt appears.

Spirits of Elduurn is one of those puzzle games that doesn't bother with a lot of bells and whistles, largely because it doesn't need to. It's the sort of simple, thoughtful game that is perfect for relaxing with, though some may find that the complete lack of any new gameplay elements introduced throughout means its basic concept wears thin despite its gorgeous presentation and cute cutscenes. The skip function being limited to when the game decides feels sort of pointlessly restrictive. Despite this, Spirits of Elduurn is a great example of a puzzle game that focuses on carefully crafted stages and brain teasers, and its charm and fantastic illustrated style makes us hope we see another installment somewhere down the line.

If you complete all levels with the optimum score, you will get a reward...

The lack of a reset button is a minor annoyance and oversight, and an undo function wouldn't have been unwelcome
Uh, there are actually both.

The basic idea (two different simulatenously controlled characters) was interesting, but the actual game is waaay too shallow (absolutely no new elements are introduced) and waaay too easy (no level up took more than 15 seconds for me).

It is possible to beat the "optimum" score, which makes me feel like a smarty smart smart. And there is a reset button, but no undo that I can find.

Can someone tell me how to get level 4-5 in 35 moves? I can only manage it in 39.

Piksels> Dora Made for #lowrezjam, Bart Bonte delivers another simple puzzle game, but "simple" definitely doesn't mean easy! All you need to do is fill in the shaded areas of each level with the pixels you're provided with, but changing rules and elements makes that harder than it initially seems!  ...

Sokoboom> Dora It may look sweet and simple, but don't let it fool you, because this Sokoban-style puzzle game is going to tie your brain into knots. All you have to do is slide crates onto spots marked with an X, but with thirty stages, each more tidily and cleverly designed than the last, Sokoboom proves it has what it takes to keep you challenged.  ...

Manufactoria> Dora Give your circuits a workout in this deceptively simple puzzle game of logic that puts you in control of building a machine designed to test robots for defects. Defects like homicidal tendencies. You know, the usual stuff. When you're done, make use of the level editor, because the best way to show you care for someone is to tie their brain into knots.  ...

Interlocked> Chiktionary It's a simple idea wrapped up in one great presentation for Interlocked, the 3D puzzle from We Create Stuff. Figure out how to take apart increasingly elaborate sliding block arrangements; the pieces are locked together, and it should be easy for you to puzzle out how to pull them all apart... right? The perfect treat to start your week off right.  ...
