Relics of Rajavihara Thrill Seeker Pledge contains:
One copy of the game
All unlocked stretch goals
20 additional new challenging bonus levels
You’ve discovered an ancient palace filled with treasures, but you’re not the first to arrive. Your arch-nemesis has beaten you there. Bent on power and with thoughts of world domination, you must stop him before it’s too late (and collect some of those treasures along the way)!
Relics of Rajavihara is a solo campaign-style game, but also a single play solo adventure game. Make your way through 50 levels of puzzling adventure, spread out over 5 floors, each floor introducing new challenges, and each level harder than the last. Then, once you’ve reached your nemesis and put an end to his devious plot, you’ll unlock a new world that will allow you to play an infinite number of single play solo adventures that you’ll be able to take part in creating.
Shift and slide blocks to complete the goal on each level. You’ll have to find ways to navigate through obstacles and line blocks up in order to climb, descend, and complete the goal for each level before you advance to your next level.

Nice solo, with a good production value (although some space could easily have been saved in the insert for future components). The campaign unfortunately remains on the easy side throughout, although some challenges await in the Thrill Seeker extra floors. There are some post-game options once done, but the best is to forget the game on the shelf for 1-2 years and restart the campaign. The kind of game to share around.
Joe Slack's puzzle designs are excellent, and the level progression is both fair and challenging. There are also quite a lot of puzzles here, do not expect to blast through this in one sitting. Some of them get seriously tricky later on. There were a few where I had to go for a walk and come back to it... I played a prototype version and have only see photos of the final product, but the cubes look really outstanding in the retail version. The color of the pieces really pops. Get it for yourself for a change of pace, or for anyone who likes puzzles. They'll find a lot to love figuring Relics out.
