Game Obelisk is a puzzle game that is built up from 9 chunks.

Chunks have bridges that drop down when they align with each other. Two lit chunks can be swapped with each other. Some of them are linked together with connectors and can be rotated from a distance. Some have walls that divide the chunk into two parts. Sometimes you're joined by a partner and you have to get through the level together.

Your objective is to get everyone to the shrine. Some levels have multiple solutions so how you get there is up to you!
