Frustrating at times but…

After my first rating I received a nice message concerning my experience with the difficulty of some of the puzzles. I’m going to continue with the game because the graphics really do convey the feeling of being there.

I’ll update my review as I go along…

Gil’s tent contains many puzzles, some difficult, but not initially necessary to solve to continue exploration. You’re almost at the place where the game opens up to an epic adventure. So don’t stop just yet. I believe you’ll find the game rewarding if you either solve the tent puzzles or simply continue into the Great Pyramid and get past the Queen’s Chamber air shaft robot puzzle. Everything opens up after that point!

Classic game ported to iOS!

This is a great port of a game my family spent many hours playing on PC. The team at Life Tree did such a wonderful job, highly recommend!

Very frustrating.

Hard to play on an iPhone. I remember the PC original game. It was so good! But this version is difficult to follow. Too many options to wander all over the inside of the pyramid with no guidance or real direct goals to achieve.

Hello, sorry to hear that you had a frustrating experience. The enhanced version follows the original game in almost all aspects, other than HD graphics and enhanced puzzles. I encourage you to keep playing, the game really opens up after solving a few puzzles. We designed the game in keeping with the feel of original adventure games from the 90s and early 2000s that hid secrets and clues well. With a bit of persistence, I'm confident you can solve the Riddle! :) Thanks, God bless you!
