Description

Keen is a sliding puzzle game with turn-by-turn tactical combat and a hint of adventure! Keen's main innovation lies in its turn-based movement and attack mechanics. Slide our tiny hero vertically and horizontally to move her around puzzly rooms, or to slash through enemies with her mighty blade. Combat relies on precision-planning of enemy placement - a fresh take on the tactics genre.Responsive controls blend turns seamlessly, giving an action feel to an otherwise intermittent turn-based interaction. Players get to choose their own pace, whether fast as a hack'n'slash or methodic as chess. Each level is a self-contained chronological chapter of Kim’s saga -- big maze-like dungeons with independent objectives and exciting secrets. Hidden collectibles found during gameplay are used to unlock new abilities. This is a game for the tactics player, for the puzzle fan, and for anyone that loves a solid, old-school adventure game.

History

In a remote village where everyone is given a specific role, Kim was chosen as their guardian. Peace reigned for centuries, and the warrior role was a mere tradition tracing back to ancient times of conflict. Soon after Kim turned twelve, a distress call was sensed by her trainer - her own, adorable grandmother - who ordered her to protect the village against an impending attack. Kim was sent to fight without even knowing what violence was. Following a trail of brainwashed minions and high-tech robot soldiers, she would soon find herself in the middle of a world-domination plot carried on by an evil corporation.
