The fate of a nation lies on your shoulders. You have infiltrated the royal palace of Arkhendale to recover the most priceless object in the realm. After fighting your way to the treasury, you are but five locks away from your prize. However, time is short as guards are coming your way. Will you be able to solve the puzzle in time?

I made this short game as a test of a puzzle type that I might implement in a future game. It also functions as a teaser of a story that I'm thinking of writing.

This is a puzzle game rather then a regular story, for who are asking.

I have liked your puzzle (Solved at first attempt when the time was 10!) and the little story you got there.

For me, it is a easy-medium puzzle, and I think that puzzle will be great, if you just increase the length of the story, before you get to the chest.

I suggest to keep that puzzle nearly at the end of the story and write the beginning-before chest of the story.

Overall, It's a good puzzle, and I would like to see you add more pages to the story, because it's not actually a story for me, it's just a puzzle game.

My final rating: 4 out of 8 with a smile! :)

It's a cute little puzzle. I know you said that you made it mostly as a test, and I definitely do think it could work well as part of a larger game. The writing could benefit from a bit of proofreading.

The puzzle was easy once you figured out how all the locks worked, and it had a neat little story. I look forward to seeing it as part of a larger game, as I think this puzzle was too simple to be a story unto itself, but should have been part of a collection of puzzles.

Possible to win in 2 moves, simple puzzle. Knob 4 and 5 are identical, was that intentional?

How did the puzzle work? I won the game in six turns, but have no clue what making them all turn one actually did. Or why that was the solution.
