"I stare at the horizon every night before I sleep hoping to catch a glimpse of the lighthouse.The light reminds me of Grandpa and my summer visits playing on the cliffs. That warm life saving beacon not only saves ships, it keeps me safe too. Grandpa’s there just across the water watching over me.

But the lighthouse hasn't shone now for days and the fog is thick! What's happened? It's time to visit Grandpa!"

Beneath the lighthouse is a serene puzzle action game about a boy in search of his lost Grandpa. Your journey will take you through mysterious mechanical wheels that lay beneath the lighthouse!

**Beneath The Lighthouse is optimized for iPhone5, iPad3, iPad mini2 and iPod Touch 5G or Newer. You can try it on older devices, but we can’t guarantee a smooth rolling experience!

Free to Play:

We use advertising to monetise the experience. There are no coins/gems/booster to pay for or timers. The free version of the game contains a lives system which is carefully balanced to be fair but that makes the game slightly harder than premium.

Premium unlock:

We offer a single iAP to unlock the game to a premium experience. The premium version contains no 3rd party ads and we remove the lives system.

This game contains cross promotion for other Nitrome games and this is not removed with the IAP for removal of ads.

Editors’ Notes

The wizards at Nitrome (Gunbrick, Magic Touch) have conjured up another retro-style stunner. An opening cinematic sets the scene beautifully, showing how you ended up in a mazelike complex beneath a wondrous lighthouse. To traverse it, you have to rotate each room so your character edges around deadly traps and lands at the exit. Between the charming atmosphere and tricky time-based puzzles, we’re obsessed.

Good Game

I like it and maybe on another update for the app, it should include more minor bug fixes.

Includes the iOS 12 bug fixes

Pretty good but one major complaint

I try to play my music while I play but every time I try it pauses my music and plays the game audio. I tried to mute the game and just play the music but that still didn’t work and I still couldn’t listen to my music while I played the game.
