A downloadable game for Windows


In a realm far far away, there have been guardians who defended the world against alien terrors. Each time a guardian dies or has found a successor, he or she will pass on the burden of defending the realm to the next guardian.

An ancient entity started to become active and spread a dark plague upon the world. Death and decay spreading all over it. It was time for the defender to rise up to the challenge and beat this enigmatic being. Alas none of the defenders were able to stop it. The traps and impossible to traverse inner sanctum of the tomb made a lot of defenders lose their lives. 

Finally after many years of death and terror, another defender has risen to take on the enigmatic being. Will you succeed where others have failed?

I really loved the experience. Hard and punishing at a point you have to really plan each move.

Thanks for playing! I really appreciate it.... It was quite difficult and punishing, ran out of time to balance it better, but I'm glad that you loved it!
