The Legendary Ori is a game in which the player is a special human who can
summon the assistance of Ori, animals with specialized abilities to assist
him in his journeys. His goal is to escape the jungle. Use the Ori to
destroy enemies and get past obstacles to win.
The environment is loosely based off of the religious beliefs of the
Yoruba nation of Africa. The game is a wonderful opportunity for those
unfamiliar with said beliefs, and have a fun way to introduce themselves
to alternative belief systems.
The lizard can climb on walls, the dragon can fly and shoot fireballs.
The tiger can push and pull boxes, the sabre tooth tiger can break them.
The snake can burrow underground, the king cobra can turn invisible.
The human can climb ladders.
All forms except the lizard can attack, and all forms can pull levers/
