Guardian Rock Walkthrough

Guardian Rock is an excellent online puzzle game in which you are the 'guardian rock', hence the games name, and your goal is to destroy the archeologists who are trying to intrude on your temple. You are able to use force but crushing the intruders or simply mowing them over or, later in the game, you are given devices you can use to accomplish your task. Like many of the other puzzle games available online, you have only the arrow keys to navigate through the levels, but not in the same way you would use them in an action game. Pressing the up arrow key, for example will take you all the way to the top of the screen unless there is an obstacle or device standing in your way. Use these obstacles to your advantage by using them to control your movement and guide you to the archeologists to destroy them. Once all of the archeologists are destroyed, you much get to the shining door to pass through to the next level. It sounds fairly simple and in terms of rules, it is. Solving the puzzle to get to the level is a bit of a different story though.

The first few levels in Guardian Rock are pretty easy. Like most online puzzle games, the first two or three levels are more tutorial levels; giving you the chance to get used to how the game is played before you move on to more difficult challenges. This is great for those that aren't used to this sort of puzzle game as you can learn how to navigate and figure out what needs to be done before you complete a level. Once the game starts getting more difficult in a hurry. Take your time with the first few levels. Remember, you can reset the level as many times as you need to, so take a little time to get used to the controls before you move to the higher levels.

As you progress in Guardian Rock, you will encounter several different obstacles which can both help and hurt you. Anything that looks dangerous such as spikes or TNT probably is. Avoid running into anything that looks like it might hurt you. If you run into spikes, TNT and other harmful obstacles you will die and have to start from the beginning of the level. Other obstacles such as cracked blocks will be destroyed when you run into them which can help you navigate through the levels a little easier. Just be careful with these blocks. If you remove a block too early and need it later on, you will need to reset the level and try again. Plan out your moves in levels that will require you to remove blocks before you make your first moves. Try to solve the puzzle before you hit any of the arrow keys. This way, you'll know where you need to know and what blocks you will need to remove ahead of time and will reduce the chances you will have to reset the level.

Overall, Guardian Rock is an excellent online puzzle game that will hold your attention and keep you entertained from beginning to end. The graphics are fun and entertaining. Take the time to read the story before you begin playing. It takes you a few minutes, but you'll get a lot more enjoyment out of the game if you take the time to get into the story. This is one of the best puzzle games online simply for the challenge, the story and the graphics that make up the game.
