Xye is an unusual puzzle game in which the objective is to direct a green round blob type character around a maze in his search for gems along several levels.

Each level comprises a different puzzle with multiple objects to find. In many ways, Xye will remind you of other puzzle games like sokoban or boulderdash, but it also includes some arcade elements. The difficulty is to find the objects, each of which has its own function, or in combination with others, so that you can open the doors and burst through a wall. After you have succeeded in internalizing the "logic" of Xye you'll soon forget about the dodgy graphics and it will test even the most agile mind. Interestingly, the developers have promised in the next version that you'll be able to create your own levels with a level editor to see if you can test your friends.

A challenging and simple game that's a refreshing change from similar block and maze puzzle based clones.

The base of the game is that there are multiple objects with different actions and interactions that can be combined to generate very different kinds of challenges and puzzles.
