Deep in the heart of the South American rainforest, in the lost Temple of Algoritmo, lie the fabled Jewels of Heuro. Protecting them are zombies who have guarded the secrets of the jewels through the centuries.
As a treasure hunter, your aim is to collect all jewels before the zombies reach you. Are you ready?
Congratulations to Víctor Paesa for finding the shortest route (so far…) in the 8-jewel chamber! Can you find a shorter one?

The Jewels of Heuro runs from this page - http://www2.open.ac.uk/openlearn/heuro/index.html, from where the URL doesn't change. Clicking the Start your Adventure bar should take you to the first screen of the interactive. You don't mention what device and browser you're using, but if you can supply that information we can investigate.
Hi, nice game but I miss the datas I need to give it a try.
In fact I suggested this as a sample project in a Python programming language MOOC
but to really start with your different levels I need the distance between the different jewels ?
Did I miss something ?
