Mystic Pillars combines elements of puzzle games and visual novelty items. The game was developed by the independent Indian team Holy Cow Productions. The game is also known as Mystic Pillars: A Story-Based Puzzle Game.

Plot

The main character of Mystic Pillars is a mysterious traveler who reaches the drought-stricken fantastic kingdom of Zampi. The main character's task is to stop this cataclysm by destroying the pillars that block access to water. By the way, our hero discovers what really put Zampi on the verge of a complete fall.

Mechanics

In Mystic Pillars the action was shown in an isometric view. During the game we have to solve a hundred puzzles presented on the world map as columns blocking water in a river flowing through the kingdom. Puzzles consist in moving magic gems between connected pillars; we have to do it in such a way that there is a certain number of stones on each of the columns. The problem is complicated by the fact that in each of the puzzles we have a limited number of moves, and if we run out of them before solving the problem, we have to start the challenge again. Between puzzles, we follow the course of story by watching animated videos and having conversations with the residents of Zampi.

Technical aspects

The two-dimensional graphics of Mystic Pillars is hand-drawn and look pleasing to the eye. It is also worth mentioning the calm music that helps to solve mathematical problems.
