Guide The Light FREE out now!

London, May 9 th, 2013 - AppyNation is pleased to announce GUIDE THE LIGHT FREE , a ‘lite’ version of our devilishly difficult puzzle adventure game that saw widespread critical acclaim, is now available worldwide for iPhone and iPad users.

The game allows players to play a fistful of levels for free, and if they enjoy themselves (we’re certain they will!) they can buy the rest via IAP. All very simple, clean, and easy.

Guide The Light

The latest, greatest puzzle game for iOS! Help the hapless gentlemen explorer Captain Blake in his globe spanning quest for fame and riches. His nose for treasure has led him to two dangerous, trap-laden Lost Pyramids – one in Egypt, the other in the Aztec ruins of South America – and it’s up to you to make sure gets out not only alive, but filthy rich!

By cleverly manipulating the blocks and mirrors that populate each one of the 50 fiendishly designed levels, you can turn Captain Blake’s worst day into his best. Reflecting the beams of light to the correct sockets in the walls of these deadly mazes will open the exit, allowing him to pocket a few more bits of treasure, and delve even deeper into the cunningly challenging chambers that wait below.

Designed and coded in Liverpool by Phasic Labs, a.k.a. Paul Ripley (a veteran developer who has previously worked on the WipeOut and Motorstorm franchises at SCEE), Guide The Light brings a healthy dose of brain teasing, atmosphere and gentle frustration to the puzzle genre, while the simple controls are perfectly suited to the touchscreen – dragging mirrors around with one or two fingers to unlock doors, avoid traps and escape monstrous crypt-spiders becomes second nature, and every level presents a unique twist on the basic challenge. Players will never tire of the challenge… and some may never escape the Pyramid!
