PC game / Joining Lyra on her perilous quest is the demon Pan, a shape-shifting manifestation of her soul, and an armored polar bear named Iorek. Players will explore 11 areas from the book and film by alternating control of these principal characters. To help Lyra navigate the 3D environments, Pan can freely transform into one of four animal guises: an ermine, hawk, sloth, and a wildcat. Each form lets Lyra climb, jump, fly, and perform other actions to solve puzzles or to avoid traps.
In addition to Lyra and Pan, players will guide the ferocious Iorek in combat encounters viewed from a third-person perspective. Wolves and other packs of enemies must be defeated using a combination of swipes, bites, and charge moves. The titular compass, Lyra’s alethiometer, is used to decode secrets, answer questions, and unlock bonus content throughout the game. Featured locales include Jordan College, London, Trollesund, Bolvangar, and Svalbard.
