Nixy the Glade Sprite is a new C64 arcade-adventure platform game, which has been ported from the ZX Spectrum version launched in 2018.
Nixy is a glade sprite charged with looking after the Gaia stone. The Gaia stone is the heart of the Glade and gives life to the plants and flowers. But something is wrong with the stone, its been corrupted and now once beautiful flowers are turning dangerous and the once friendly Mushroom people are attacking!
The Old Ones talk of a pool of water which in ages past cleansed the stone. Maybe that might work again? Travel through the forest avoiding deadly plants and creatures to find the sacred pool and cleanse the stone, then return it to the Guardian Tree in the Glade.
