The Navigator is a freeware single-player keyboard-controlled puzzle game.

All the puzzles follow the same format. A boy sails along the bottom of the screen in a galleon and the objective is to find a way to get him to a spiral that's somewhere in the sky. To get there all the boy/player has is an anchor which they can throw upwards to a nearby planet, climb up the anchor rope until they stand on another planet and from they throw the anchor to another planet and so on. Eventually as they climb along the anchor rope they will pass through the spiral and complete the level.

The problem comes when there is no direct route to the spiral or the distance between planets is too far and the anchor will not reach so to complete the player must start moving planets around the sky. When the player lands their anchor on another planet they can climb along the anchor rope to that planet or, if that planet is smaller than the one on which they stand they can pull it towards them.

A mouse is used to navigate the menus while the following action keys are used to play the game;
  • SPACE - launches the anchor
  • W - climb along the anchor rope
  • A & D to walk left/right
  • S - pulls a smaller planet closer


The Navigator Windows The first puzzle in the tutorial. The smaller green/blue planet is ringed because the character is pointing towards it, if the anchor is launched that's where it will go
The Navigator Windows A night time puzzle
The Navigator Windows Most puzzles are like this, the spiral is somewhere in the sky and the player must climb along the rope to reach it. The puzzle is how to arrange the planets so this is possible
The Navigator Windows The main menu is presented like the index to a book. It soon fills up
