For those who prefer a bit of a mind-bender over an action oriented game, Ankh follows in the same footsteps as not pr0n, God Tower, and various other password puzzles. In fact, this game was created by the very same person who created not pr0n. With Ankh, the author used nicely rendered scenes from an upcoming 3D adventure game set in ancient Egypt as backdrops for the game.
The object of Ankh is to decipher the riddle provided in the game window's title to figure out what is required to make it to the next level. Most of the time you will be manually changing the URL in the address bar of your browser, however there is at least one level in which you click a hotspot in the image that takes you to the next. Note: this is not a point-and-click game. Click.
The game was commissioned by bhv-Software, of Germany, no doubt as an advergame to raise awareness of their 3D adventure game of the same name to be released in January, 2006.
