Spirit Temple is a 2D puzzle-platforming game that has the player traverse a mysterious temple. Puzzles are physics-based, requiring the player to roll a fragile crystal ball to the end of the level without breaking it. This is done by changing its properties with the magic floor pads, such as by making it more massive, slowing it down, or shrinking it.
