High Concept

Temple Trouble is a Paganitzu clone.

Played in a top-down view on a 2D grid, players control an adventurer exploring an ancient ruin. The object of the game is to move room to room, collecting all the keys in a room to unlock the exit while trying not to get killed by monsters and traps. Puzzles involve pushing blocks, triggering switches, collecting items, directing enemy movements and water flow, destroying enemies, and timing your movements to enemies and traps.
