Zamby and the Mystical Crystals In Zamby and the Mystical Crystals players guide the creature Zamby on his quest to collect light crystals. It is a top-down puzzle game with 150 levels with an increasing difficulty. Zamby is moved around using the cursor keys. In the early levels, he can pick up crystals right away, but in later ones more strategy is needed. This usually involves boxes that need to be pushed into the water to form a bridge, or block the view of enemies who shoot Zamby when he is spotted in a straight line of sight. The levels have different surfaces and in ice areas boxes will slide until they hit an obstacle. Players can also undo all of their actions, one step at a time.

The main game mode is called Quest for the Crystals, where the levels are unlocked progressively. There is also a Kids Adventure with variants of the basic levels, but made easier for kids. While playing, players can also unlock Secret Missions with a different approach to solving the puzzles. Finally, the game also supports Addon Levels released through the developer's website. The game also includes a level editor to create custom environments. In an encyclopaedia, players can unlock entries about the world's characters. Some levels have a character called Immanos who provides hints for specific challenges. [source:mobygames]
