Guide our intrepid hero through deadly mazes to find fame, fortune and glory!

Captain Blake, the famous explorer, has discovered a lost pyramid filled with treasures of unimaginable value.

The route through the pyramid is blocked by stone doors that stand between Blake and the treasure, opening only if beams of light fall on their receptor crystals. Help Captain Blake reach the heart of the pyramid by using mirrors and crystals to Guide the Light!

Every chamber contains a unique puzzle and you'll have to learn new skills to get through in one piece. Sometimes you'll need to split and combine light colours, bounce light around mazes and even work against the clock to escape the pyramid's fiendish traps.

If at any time you get really stuck on a puzzle, you can always consult Captain Blake's Vision Crystal to glimpse the solution. But use it wisely - the crystal takes time to recharge after each use.

If you're looking for a puzzle game that's quick and easy to learn and which will really test your wits, play Guide the Light today!

At first it seems a little basic, the animation isn't gold standard and the fonts are, well just kid-like, but who cares! This game was very entertaining, good pace with teaching you new items and traps, as well as hidden things like killing spiders with opening and closing doors. I found it very challenging as you progress through each pyramid, but never IMPOSSIBLE, as another review says on here. Clearly they had now patience. I beat this in three or four days, playing in lengthy blocks or at times just a level or two before bed.

I can see myself playing this over and over, I love the concept and puzzle games like this are the kind of "time-wasters" people should be playing. Ones that make you think and problem solve, not jump through hoops or pipes (crappy-bird)...

Only two complaints:

Developers, maybe speed up the death animations? I found that I would pause and reset when I set a booby trap simply because it wasn't fast enough.. NOT how fast the spikes or spiders crawl.. That perfect, but once you die... The screen spins or fades and you get a message or something, nah just have it go black and say exit or replay immediately, nobody needs a lengthy death.

Second, more pyramids! Or more to buy! I just finished and I still have half my lunch to play! I would pay 99 cents for each pyramid extra! Pleeeeease! I want more!

Sincerely- future mobile game developer

Fantastic puzzle game


I just finished all the levels. This was a wonderful game that keeps including things as one plays. Mirrors, balls, spiders... While the levels start off easy, they get progressively harder. The last level of each pyramid is generally the toughest level, but they were beatable. I would love to see additional pyramids!

good to a point

This is a fun game. At least the first 24 levels. Level 25 may be next to impossible. If you get thru the first challenge of level 25 and fail the 2nd challenge of lvl 25 you must start lvl 25 all over again. There are 4 challenges to lvl 25. And the time to complete any challenge of lvl 25 is very very short, compared to earlier levels. So it seems like this game may be un-winnable for most people.
