In this 2D-Puzzle-Metroidvania you control the water to solve puzzles and explore the mysteries of Atlantis.
The sunken city of Atlantis is now a site full of eerie creatures and long lost secrets. Dive into the mysterious world of Light of Atlantis and use your abilities as a robot to solve the puzzles of this ancient civilization. This 2D puzzle metroidvania combines jump 'n' run with a special element: water. The water influences the movement of your robot as well as the behaviour of the enemies. It changes the environment and serves as a dynamic core mechanic of the game. Using various levers you can find throughout the environment, the water level can be controlled in many different ways to interact with enemies and puzzle elements in a variety of ways.
During your journey, you will encounter different robots that offer new perspectives with their unique abilities to help you on your way through Atlantis. Can you uncover the events of the past and illuminate the lights of Atlantis?
