Darkened Skye is a third-person action-adventure shooter video game for the PC and Nintendo GameCube, whose developer, Boston Animation, programmed it primarily in Ukraine. The game was also packaged with Outlaw Golf. Its title character is a young woman named Skye who lives in a fantasy realm searching for her mother. She does not use firearms, but can perform magic using Skittles candies, as well as use her staff as a melee weapon, though it also becomes an energy weapon when used in conjunction with the Skittles.

 Miscellaneous Items
-=Skittles=- Build your magic spells with Skittles. They come in yellow, orange, red, green and purple.
-=Rumble Stones=- Blow a pile of boulders or other objects up. Useful to get what might be behind something.
-=Rune Mines=- Hurt or destroy multiple opponents by dropping a Rune Mine in the middle of them. (They will hurt you too if you are too close.)
-=Potions=- Like the sparkling flowers that appear, square bottles of rejuvenation liquids can be found and will go into your inventory. Red potions increase health while Blue potions increase mana.
-=Spongites=- Throw a spongite into the water as temporary platforms that can be jumped upon. They last about 10 seconds and then disintegrate.
-=Flashing and Glowing Objects=- Watch for flashing and/or glowing buttons, levers or other objects. They are essential to completing the game. Some simply point the way. Others need to be "used".
 Screen Problems Fix
If you have an orange screen or black stripes or streaks on your screen (especially if playing in Windows XP), it can be fixed in the Settings. In the beginning, change from 3D to OpenGL.
