This wonderfully detailed and imaginative book is full of imagery and passion that pulls you in and just wont let you go till the end. That is the way with most of Clive Cussler’s books. He is a true master when it comes to writing derivative fiction. He adds just enough fact to make the whole story believable as f it is happening right now. It is truly a shame that the film that was made from this book did not keep that in mind, it is no wonder that Clive Cussler was so livid when the movie came out. If a studio did that to a story of mine I would be mad as well.
The Great Pharaoh is anything but great. A simple match 3 game from a simpler time, maybe early 2000s, late 1990s. The back story in why we are playing this game is a little disturbing. They tell us of how different kings would build their great cities in Kemet, and what resources they would use to fund the building. In this tale, we are funding the royal coffers by, hoo boy… pretty much tomb raiding for gold.
Knowing a little about Kemetic faiths and practices of the time, it was surprising that this game got through to be downloaded. It is simple enough to play, match 3 stones up until you get enough gold to finish the level, and try to take out the mummies that will steal the gold along the way, but can you blame these mummies for wanting their money back? Kemetics believed that they could take their earthly treasures with them so they would follow with their ka into the next life, and sure, there were tomb raiders back even then. These thieves usually ended up dying rather painfully, but for a king to send a team of raiders in to scavenge gold from former nobles would have put a serious black mark on his reign, no matter how good his intentions were.
Tomb Raider is a very hard game, much harder than other games out there. This game is old and the graphics look extremely retro. The controls are confusing in this but, it is a good game. This game have 15 levels and those 15 levels are challenging and long. The 15 levels are painful and confusing but, you can solve them. This game is set in Peru, Greece, Egypt, and the lost city of Atlantis. In Peru, there 4 levels. Greece has 5 levels, Egypt has 3, and the Lost City of Atlantis has 3 levels. You are playing as an explorer and name is her Lara Croft. She is a hot mama! Lara Croft carrying some weapons and the weapons that are her favorite are her two pistols. She use her guns when fighting monsters, big cats, dinosaurs and people that are trying to kill her. There’s other weapons in the game besides the 2 main pistols. You get the shotgun, Magnums, Uzis, and some grenades. In this game, Lara is looking for the lost city of Atlantis and some thieves are trying steal the treasure. The first time I played Tomb Raider, it was a demo on the computer got really mad at those, and I said “No!!!! That’s it! I’m done!” When got the Play Station version, I kept on playing the game until I was tired. This is my favourite game and I can’t stop playing the this old classic. So, if you want something long or challenging, play Tomb Raider. You can’t stop playing this game.
In ancient times past most tribes and men were hunter gatherers and had not yet started to cultivate the land. The biggest animal that they hunted was that of the Mammoth. The person to pierce the heart of the beast would be the one to hold the White Spear and be the one to lead the people of the Yagahl. The is the setting that we have for the start of the film that most critics hated and most audiences adored. Personally, and I know that is wrong for a reviewer, I could care less what other critics say about the facts of the film. It was fun to watch and it is always going to have a special place for me since it was the last film that I got to watch while my father was still alive and he absolutely loved the film.
Take some ancient history that’s a little off, a match 3 grid, and some logic puzzles, and you get Cradle of Egypt. We are now building a town in Lower Egypt, enjoying the green fields of Kemet as the river rises, and leaves us with some amazingly rich soil to plant… tomatoes? Sorry, guys, but tomatoes are a New World fruit, and the Egyptians never had ‘em, unless some Atlanteans or Ancient Aliens brought them a pizza.
