Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids
There are people who believe that those who lived way back to Adam were actually much smarter than us today. Even though they didn't have laptops and iPods.
This would be a great argument to explain why Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids is so challenging, if you just take into account the era of the game story.
It is definitely takes to be smart to make somebody disappear many years from your time.
In this game from Gameshastra you are to save your sister, Brianna
Hastings, who has been trapped in an ancient tomb. This whole situation goes way back to the times of the Old Kingdom, King
Amenhotep IV, Queen Nefertiti and other fellows you are to deal with.
In other words this is another game where one of the science sibling is saving the other. The game mostly consist of hidden object levels with mini-games in between.
The game starts with an opening movie, but if you don't want it just click three times. In every level you are to look for the scarabs. Finding 36 of them will let you unlock a special puzzle at the end of the game. The hint system works very simple - use it as much as you want, but only when it is recharged.
And you might need to use it quite often since the items here are hidden quite good. Some of them are very small or too transparent. Moving the cursor around the screen you find the areas you can go to when the cursor changes to an arrow.
The mini-games may seem a little tough too, but still solvable. It just depends on the hidden-object/puzzle experience I guess. The first one is about hieroglyphics tiles. You are to remove the tiles, from the board, that are shown at the top. You'll
play 10 rounds, of 5 tiles, and have 10 seconds to clear each round. That's not hard, but neither it is easy.
The graphics are all themed and the locations are all down to the theme. They are bright but may be a bit blurry at times which isn't fun when you are to find some tinny-tiny items.
It may be better try the free hour first to have a better idea of the game to see if you want to buy it.
