Herod's Lost Tomb - In Search Of The Past
Herod's Lost Tomb gets you in the world of archeologists and dust and lost things of highest value that you are to find. I guess you know by now what is lost and what you are to find.
The game developed by Media Art and published by Merscom features picturesque graphics and a nice story to follow.
Choosing one of the two characters you set on a journey in search of (yes) Herod's lost tomb.
Since it is very important to find the place of Herod's actual burial, you are to visit 16 different archeological sites.
The fact that there are 16 sites doesn't actually mean 16 levels or something. You get much more actually. The game features 20 chapters and every chapter get you to search from 3 to 9 locations.
This means - yes - that you are going to be in the same places more than once.
One of the no-fun things is that the items you are to find are usually stay in the same places when you get back to a scene. But it doesn't alos mean that all of the items are easy to find.
Some of the items' names on the list are not very obvious and you don't always understand what to look for. Or the words may refer to things that are too alike like "urn" and "vase".
There are also five power-ups to make the it easier for you.
The game features a number of mini-games in between the hidden-object levels. These are pretty standard though.
There are two modes for you to choose from - times and relaxed - both of which are pretty easy to complete.
Even though the game doesn't reach the top of the mountain with everything it has, it is still quite a nice thing for a change.
