Eist returns is an arcade-puzzle game I had written back in 1992 for 8-bit Atari computers. In 2016 I gave it the second life on Android devices - phones, tablets and Android TV.
In 2017 Eist returned once again - as an open source project for desktop computers, written in JavaFX. Feel free to download, play, and contribute to the
project on GitHub.
Carry Eist through 40 boards, placing arrows on his way to indicate directions. Descent from the path makes him fall down. You need to pick up all artifacts for the exit to open.
Along the way you meet doors. You need a key to open each one. Use the ladder to cross gaps in the path. On some boards you will also find a pair of teleports, which move Eist to each another.
Before you click the board and put Eist in movement, plan the game carefully. You will have no time to think later.
