Mr Beam and the temple of the ancients
Here's your chance to enjoy a refreshing take on the temple-in-the jungle-with-funny-hatted-manly-explorer-in-it genre in this game set in a universe inspired by the best adventure films !
Mr Beam mixes platform-type action with puzzle solving, sometimes in alternation, sometimes a bit of both at the same time, all the while telling you a zany story about an ingenuous XIXth century English explorer...
Enter the depths of the temple, amid splendid backgrounds for which a whole new 2D rendering engine has been especially conceived !
Let your dexterity and cunning prevail as you progress from the childlike easiness of the beginning to the mind-bending difficulty of the end !
Follow Mr Beam, the world-renowned sweet-mannered and birdbrained explorer in his discovery of a temple lost in the jungle...but beware ! this god-forsaken place is the realm of darkness, and light will be your only ally ! Use it to prevent Mr Beam from meeting his fate in one of the numerous traps, or inside the belly of one of the voracious monsters awaiting him at every turn in this abode of unspeakable horrors ! Also, rack your brains in order to find the solution to the mazes of light and other ingenious puzzles barring your way !
Remember that inside the temple to the Old Ones, every action counts : Mr Beam is in great need of all your shrewdness, as he's not very astute himself and couldn't do much left to his own devices -but, to be fair, what playable video game character would ?- Be cautious as you advance, stay under the light at all times, or you may have the opportunity of seeing Mr Beam perish in the most gruesome manner !
Will you be clever enough to penetrate the temple's secrets ? Will you escape with Mr Beam's life, or even, maybe, discover a fabulous treasure hidden at the very end of this sinister place -which would be great news for Mr Beam, whose finances are at the lowest at the beginning of the game...- ???
Above all, don't you ever forget : it's all you can do not to let Mr Beam in the dark, or else he sure won't make old bones !
