The Crown of Wu tells the story of Wu, a half-monkey, half-human who was once the emperor’s herald. Due to the use of a crown that gave him extraordinary powers, he began to behave chaotically, eventually leading to his capture and condemnation to a harsh punishment. After being frozen in bio-static solution for dozens of years, Wu manages to free himself and discovers a world in ruins. His crown has been stolen and is being used to provoke a vibration that will lead to a gigantic explosion and the extinction of the world. Wu must recover his stolen crown and help those he once punished to save the world and redeem himself.
Immerse yourself in a new world where legend meets reality, and use your powers of air, fire, earth, and lightning to overcome obstacles and defeat enemies. The Crown of Wu offers a fresh and simple combat system that grants you incremental powers as you travel through this terrible land to solve the mystery of the stolen Crown. Jump, run, and parkour your way through this new world as you solve intricate puzzles and overcome increasingly complex trials as you progress through the levels.
