Crystal Crisis is a three-dimensional puzzle game in which characters from various independent titles and comics meet. The game was developed by the American company Nicalis, which has been producing indie games and publishing titles from Japan since 2007. Thanks to the contacts established over the years, the developers have managed to obtain rights to use in Crystal Crisis characters from games such as Cave Story, Code of Princess, The Binding of Isaac, Umihara Kawase, as well as classic Osamu Tezuki mangas - Astro Boy and Black Jack.


Crystal Crisis combines the features of classic fighting games with logical elements. Upon starting the game players choose one of the twenty available heroes, who will represent them in a series of consecutive duels. On the left side of the game screen, there is a board with colored blocks. By manipulating them, players combine those in the same color with each other, activating a series of attacks hurting the opponent. The opponent loses the match when his life points drop to zero. While building a combo, players also load a special ability bar, which after using deals massive damage, which may decide about the outcome of the duel.

Game modes

In addition to the standard single-player mode, developers have also prepared multiplayer mode for up to two players - both local on the single screen and online.

Technical aspects

Crystal Crisis offers colorful and pleasant three-dimensional visuals. Each of the twenty heroes has a unique set of animations and attacks, as well as their own board and music theme. During the duels, the characters also shout out different kinds of issues and react vividly to what is happening on the screen.
