A maze-style puzzler in which the goal is to maneuver a diminishing light to and through its kindred sources, avoiding extinction.

Windows
Platform/System: 
Mac OS X+
Platform/System: 
Linux / Unix
Platform note: 
Py'Game
Brief Play Description: 

Using arrow keys to control a breathing orb of light, the player must discover an appropriate path to an endpoint of a similar spherical light. Movement reduces the remaining store of life-light and the corresponding visibility radius until the orb extinguishes in darkness unless replenished with a rejoining of light. Dense obstacle spheres can block or redirect the trajectory of the orb and some obstacles allow passage while hindering or enhancing progress.
