Game elements

Characters

The Hero is you!

Behind her docile appearance, the Princess is actually in charge. Except when wolves attack... or any other puzzling situation has to be solved.

Wolves chase the closest human they find, and are not friendly. They will even throw obtainables astray and when cornered will push Objects.

Obtainables

The precious tiara is so fragile that it will shatter under too much weight.

The sword can be used to keep wolves away and to slash crates.

One secret item may be discovered.

Objects

Crates can be pushed, are flammable and float on water.

Boulders can also be pushed but are neither flammable nor float on water.

Trees can't move but are flammable.

Torches will ignite trees when pushed towards them and won't float on water.

The princess now stubbornly refuses to be left behind! On the last level, she will now consistently flee from the wolves and cause a fire - and gives clearer hints. It is also no longer possible to push an extra wolf into the last level.
