The title takes players into a puzzle adventure where they must infiltrate a temple with the goal of finding the main character’s daughter. While this title has received mixed reviews, many players appreciate its direct focus and simplistic design.
This title is mostly targeted towards a younger audience, or at least that is what its design suggests. While the game has some challenging puzzles players the title lacks in the soul that would make it a more fulfilling adventure. Still, as an entertaining pastime, this game more than hits its mark despite its lackluster story.
Kauil’s Treasure is a low-poly adventure that mixes Indiana Jones with player decision making. The game comes from publisher JanuSoft and follows the adventure of Dr. Goodfall. After your daughter, Sophie, goes missing you swear to locate her and it becomes the primary objective of this single-player adventure.

Player must overcome falling platforms, swinging blades, and other standard temple tropes while solving unique puzzles along the way. The game takes advantage of simple skills and mixes it with platforming puzzles to create an interesting blend of whip mechanics and lucky jumps.
Your daughter was in search of Kauil’s Treasure and so once you find it you are sure to find her. Each level is completed by solving the puzzle of the room, and the game is won once the daughter has been returned to her doting father. Still, be sure to loot the treasure as everything revolves around completing the temple before it is too late.
This game has received mixed reviews on multiple platforms since its origin. While the community seems to be contemplating its value, the game continues to be either loved or hated depending on who plays it.
Still, there is a bright future at the end of the tunnel as many low-poly titles have shown to be successful among the Xbox audience.
