I must say - what an addictive little puzzle game.

Get the keys to the bottom of the screen to unlock the chests, bypassing obstacles on the way. You can move keys down, left and right but not up so one wrong move and your stuffed.

Gets progressively harder.

Good graphics but that doesn't matter as this type of game needs the gameplay - it has it!

Nice little game. Graphics are nice, but a bit boring. A little more animation/flare would be nice.

That said, the game is all about puzzling and it excels here. Nice effort.
