Temple of Sun and Moon is a running and jumping game with a puzzle element. This is set in an ancient temple dedicated to the gods of the sun and the moon. Collect 25 coins to complete the game, however some coins are easier to get to than others, and some seem impossible. After getting to the end of the level you are given special powers to change the world from day to night and back again. The temple changes configuration for each time zone. Use your power to reach the coins you could not reach before, and open up new areas.

NotesAccessibility Notes


Although colour is used to indicate which time-zone you are in, there are also visual indicators such as the presence of a sun or moon in the sky that also indicate the change.

The game does not save your progress between sessions. Checkpoints only work during a single session.
