Blade Gardener is a one-level tech demo for darthlupi's upcoming blade-swinging action game, which seems to borrow swordplay elements from his other unreleased project called Sword Fighter Zero. You take on the role of a gardener in the Garden of Life, who has to drive back enemies sent by the Goddess of Decay to corrupt everything that is under your care.

This basically involves going around the map and turning large dark crystals into pulsating life orbs with your beam of light, simply by holding down the right mouse button and aiming it at whatever you need converting or eradicated. You can fill up the beam gauge easily by hovering close to a giant life orb with some mana from the enemies you have defeated. The sword acts as a form of protection against harmful projectiles, and can also be used to slice at your adversaries to convert them into mana for collection.

This short level ends once you've managed to convert all dark crystals into life orbs. You can use the F4 function key to switch between full screen and windowed mode.
