The day of the Pharaoh
Dr. Gerald Klein set off on the dangerous journey to the Kingdom of Anubis to find six fragments of the sacred tablet - well originally it was one tablet which Dr. Klein studied in his laboratory and then happened a small accident and suddenly he had six rare artifacts (a bit smaller) instead of one. But that's not all. The curse of the pharaohs hit Dr. Klein! Now he has to wander throughout the corridors of Egyptian labyrinth until he finds all the fragments.
Notice that the online version is still in beta. Game is by The Game in a Box.
As everybody knows, ancient labyrinths are full of mummies, deadly spiders, dangerous statues shooting arrows, trapdoors and collapsing bridges. And guards which attact every unwanted visitor - and Dr. Klein is not welcome here. And the time is ticking...
Here and there can be found red bottles replenishing health, blue bottles improving visibility, and the best are magic circles which also replenish health and protect the archeologist. You will need them. The corridors are dark and the enemies persistent - those spiders are running pretty quickly and follow you for a long time. In some parts of the intricate labyrinth you need to solve some puzzles too. May the hand of Horus guide your actions!
The graphics by F. Marchioli is simply beautiful, and the soundtrack very good too. At the beginning you can chose a language, English or Italian. The game is completely controlled by a mouse. The sentence "Anubis will weight your soul." you will hear quite often I'm afraid. Hopefully it's light (your soul).
Have a good time with another action adventure game!
