Evil imps are invading the cities of Svetlograd. As a counter-measure, a
crossbow is deployed to protect the gates, using the imps themselves as
_Svetlograd_ is a marble popper game, where the player controls a stationary
crossbow loaded with monsters. Lines of the multicolored creatures move
twisting around the screen, and the objective is to aim and shoot with the 360
º turning weapon, trying to make matches of three or more of the same color to
eliminate the imps. If the rows reach the city, the game is over.
Besides the moving demons, the scenery has destructible obstacles with rewards
hidden inside like jewels, coins and collectible mathryoshka dolls. New levels
are unlocked after gathering one hundred dolls. Jewels add to the score, and
coins are used at the shop, to upgrade the cities’ defense and the power-ups.
Power-ups appear randomly on the lines, indicated by an icon over one of the
imps. They can be collected with matches. Some are used automatically, like
the one that moves the line backwards, or other that freezes the movement for
a few seconds. Others have to be shot from the crossbow, like the fireball
that burns everything in its path, the lightning bolt that destroys all in a
straight line, the ricochet that breaks in multiple shots bouncing around the
screen and the color bomb that explodes every monster of its hue.
