OverviewOverview

Creature in the Well is a pinball-inspired fighting game that reimagines the ball bouncing fun of Arkanoid. You play the last remaining robot who ventures deep into a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility and save the village that relies on this resource.

Play is a combination of exploration and orb-firing and dodging puzzles. You can charge up energy orbs with your saber and ricochet them to reactivate dormant machinery and stop the sandstorm.

Each area is like a pinball machine, although you send the energy balls flying around with your sword rather than with flippers. Working out what you need to do and then hitting the right angles to land the perfect bounce can take considerable time -- much like when you first encounter a new pinball machine. Similarly, at times it can all seem overwhelming with light and balls flying everywhere.

The result is a skill based puzzle game with a unique feel and a dark brooding monster to defeat. The time-bound levels are a tough challenge but you don't need to tackle everything to progress.

There are 16 different weapons to help. The Axe, for example, splits the ball into multiples to make targeting easier. Or the Hammer, slows down time to help you. The Dual Blades offer a targeting assistance.
