A Good Time Passer!

I’m in the later stages of congestive heart failure; consequently, I am unable to do much beyond sitting in my recliner, watching TV, listening to music and playing various games
I really like Cradle of Egypt. I’ve always had a fascination about ancient Egypt and the people who lived then. This fill that fascination to degree. Not much advertising at all, either.
I want to thank the devs for a game well-done. It really helps someone to find something interesting to pass the time.
God love your hearts, anyone who happens to read this.

Cradle of Egypt

This is the most creative game I have ever played. The graphics are out of this world, the 3 match game is great when we get the Phoenix, the pic axe, and the TNT barrel. These make the game fun and involving. I have to limit my time on it or I will spend all day on it. I like creating my own Egypt and making the 'money' to advance in the levels. I am glad I invested the 5 dollars. I have a game to play for a long long time. Thank you so much for such an involving game.

Love this Game!

I enjoyed Cradle of Persia on my computer for years, taking on the fun challenge of beating it, not once, but three times! Now I’m enjoying this game by the same developer, Awem, on my iPad. I love this game! I’ve played many games in this match 3 genre and Awem puts out the best ones, in my opinion. I’m hoping that you will release the classic Cradle of Persia for mobile in the near future. If you do, I will buy that one as well!
