What is Joon Shining?
Joon Shining is a physics-based platformer game with a magical twist that will challenge even the most skilled gamers. It combines traditional golf and mini-golf mechanics with puzzle–platforming elements to create a unique and engaging gameplay experience. You play as Joon, a young sorcerer, who travels through different worlds, mastering her arcane powers to solve challenging puzzles and uncover secrets.
The game introduces magical mechanics that allow you to influence shots mid-flight, using abilities such as fire, magic rings, and airstream enchantments. In addition to these abilities, you can also enchant environments to your advantage, grow plants into new platforms, and lure dangerous creatures away to clear a path forward.
As you progress through the game’s eight unique worlds, you will encounter a myriad of magical possibilities, secrets, and traps. Each environment has its own set of challenges that you must overcome, such as floating on clouds, bouncing off bubbles, or being propelled by explosions. Some puzzles even hide secret collectibles and lore tied to the game’s true ending.
You can expect the game to offer the following:
- Eight unique worlds
- Manipulate physics and magic elemental abilities
- Uncover secrets and the ingeniously elusive Mage Drops.
- 15-20 hours of gameplay.
