Equinox, also known as Solstice II, is an isometric 3D actionpuzzle-hybrid video game for the Super NES. It is the sequel to Solstice, a Nintendo Entertainment System game.

Plot

Shadax, the wizard hero of Solstice, has been captured and imprisoned by his former apprentice, Sonia. It’s up to his son Glendaal, the only man with the magical powers strong enough to defeat the evil sorceress, to journey through eight levels and hundreds of rooms of tricky platform-jumping and block-sliding puzzles to rescue him from Sonia's icy fortress.

Gameplay

Glendaal moves from room to room looking for ‘tokens’ (blue orbs), twelve of which must be collected and brought to a boss area where they enable the ‘summoning’ of one of the game’s boss characters. Each of these must be defeated to enable progress to the next area. To aid the player in their quest, one projectile weapon and one magic scroll is hidden on each level for Glendaal to find. Most levels contain a number of entrances which are accessed from an over-world map, home to a sparse collection of wandering monsters.
