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.
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.
Here we are again with another sequel to one of the best marble-popping game franchises created, Luxor: Quest for the Afterlife. This time, Queen Nefertiti, well, her ghost, anyway, has a problem. The canopic jars that hold the organs of her Pharoah, Akenaten and herself, have been stolen, keeping their kas earthbound, and therefore they cannot pass to the spirit realm. The chase is on throughout Egypt, Babylon, Akkad, Sumer, Phoenicia, and other exotic ancient nations and cities to get them back. The puzzles are new and just as challenging as before, but with even more twists and turns, leaving you to wonder how you will ever get through them. Nefertiti will guide you along and as you earn more ankh amulets, you can buy upgrades for tools, ball sets, and shooters through the store. The light shows are impressive, and some of the tools make you wonder how you got through the other Luxor games without them. The nets themselves are life-savers, but the marble-munching scorpions are the most fun to see, and certainly the most effective. Luxor: Quest for the Afterlifeis just another in the long line of Luxor games, created by Mumbo Jumbo, and with games as addictive as this, there will most definitely be more on the way.
