Akurra is a block pushing puzzle and exploration game. Its look is inspired by classic games like Zelda, Star Tropics, and Chip’s Challenge. It looks simple, but offers a rich and complex puzzles backed by visuals and sounds that take you back to the 90's. It's relaxed go-at-your-own-pace puzzle solving.

You push blocks into holes, over pits, avoid spikes, explore caves, and ride sea turtles on your quests to complete each level. Find the kids you need, along with gems and stars that unlock new paths. Meet friends who can help. Explore the interconnected collection of islands.

The puzzles get more complex as you progress and unlock new islands. Unlike most other role play adventure games though, no puzzles you can access are impossible to solve, or require items you don't have yet. If you get stuck you can leave and come back to it later. If you are an expert player you can try and take on the substantial challenge of achieving a 100% completion rate!
