Unfortunately, a disaster struck and left the place as a forgotten ruin as time passed. Only the Sky Tower stands to this very day and currently occupied by an evil witch.A princess dressed up as a knight is on a quest to hunt down the witch and collect the crystal within the tower. She will have to encounter various puzzles and fight off skeleton soldiers that guard the tower in order to confront the witch.
