Sound is a 3-way toggle to control music, sound effects, and mute all.

Tutorial is in-game. Questy's speed can be increased with the speed buttons above the lower left Map button (Questy must be stopped first).


Game auto-saves.

This is an excellently crafted game

For those stuck trying to get the gem on the 2nd to last level, you should check to see if any pieces you can use are ALREADY on the field. I still haven't figured out how to use this extra piece to allow me to get the gem, but it's the only way I can see if this thing possibly working at all.

I've gotten every other gem and already killed the dragon, so this is the only part i have before I'll have completed this thing.

Great game

there's just one problem, how do i get the 24th gem in the second to last room? the thief always nabs it and holds onto it before i can turn around and do anything.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good puzzle game

Nice! Loads of levels getting more and more complex, but not that repetitive. The music was ok but ended up being annoying. The fast speed button was MENDATORY, it's good you thought about it, I wouldn't have played the game without it.

The map was a nice plus, but it makes the game crash when you click it while a tutorial is displaying. It's not really a problem thanks to the autosave, but just wanted to report it.

Finally, you could have made 2 others animations for questy facing up and down. Rotating your sprite like that gives the game a hastly finished feeling. (Which is absolutely not the case!)

If you wanna start a new Game, you can't push the "yes, i'm sure"-button.
The sound confirm my click but nothing happens.
