The evil corporation Xiphos is threatening to ruin the lives of all the people on the island and it’s up to you to stop them. Sunlight will be very essential to you as sunlight points allow you to shoot balls of light. The longer you charge the attack, the stronger it will be. The sunlight bar will charge up so quickly during day time that you won’t have to worry about waiting for it to charge. On the other hand, in darker areas and at night, you will have to be conservative and smart about how you use your sunlight attacks as the bar charges very slow.
There are plenty of items to find, collect and trade and several enemies for you to fight. Uncover the fate of a lost culture as you dig deep into the origins of the two siblings. Will they find out who they truly are and stop Xiphos?
