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!

A Flawless Port of a Classic Masterpiece

This game runs just as good, if not better, than both PC versions. The interface is intuitive and refreshingly responsive and quick.

Back in the day, games in the puzzle/adventure genre (much like the Myst series by Cyan) were notorious for not holding your hand. This game sets itself apart from all the derivative boring pay-to-win games that saturate the App Store (Thankfully), and will actually require a level of wit to complete.

There are other reviews that claim this game is too difficult, but it’s meant to be a challenge and test your patience and resilience (like a true puzzle/adventure game should).

This game will require you to take notes, draw maps and diagrams, take photos, and revisit areas to uncover clues you may have missed - all of which contribute to the thrill of the adventure and pay homage to what this genre is supposed to be about. Embrace it!

If you lean into the power of deduction and stick with it, the feeling of accomplishment when completing the game will be great.

Hats off to the writers, graphic artists, animators, and development team for bringing to mobile and tablet one of the few genuine puzzle/adventure games left.

When I first got this game when I was a teen, I played my heart out on this game. I love everything Egypt and when I saw this game, I HAD to get it. I enjoyed it SO much!

I never forgot about this game and would always try to find other games that were like this and although satisfying, it never quite hit the mark that this game did! I remember thinking, “God, I wish they would make this game an app” and to my surprise.. THEY DID??!!!

This game now is even BETTER than before! They’ve updated it in so many ways. Navigation, item inventory, even a camera to take pictures of those clues you wish you could before, a magnifying glass to get up close and personal for more clues, they even added DLC!!!! 😆😆😆😆😆 Which I WILL BE BUYING!

If you’re thinking about buying the game, do it! If you love Nancy Drew games, MYST, or the like, you will absolutely LOVE this game!

To the developers, THANK YOU!! You have literally made a dream come true! Thank yoooouuuu!!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 I hope there will be more to come whether adding more to this game or more games like this in the future!
