The Game
In this game you play a present-day archeologist who’s trying to get back into the fabled Luxor pyramid. You’ve already done some exploration down in it, and you’ve made some tantalizing preliminary discoveries. Unfortunately for you, however, your access to the pyramid has been frustrated lately because of military action around the site.

The game begins in your Cairo hotel room, where you await a message from a mysterious man named Dr. Osiris. A character a bit like a cross between L. Ron Hubbard and Attila the Hun, Osiris is a scientist who’s invented a new and popular religion based on old Egyptian beliefs. Is he on your side or not? You don’t know, but you eagerly open up his letter anyway.

In it is a passcode and keycard to get past the military guards and back into the pyramid. And so your adventure begins!

If all I reviewed was the first third of this game, I would put it on my top ten list of adventure games. This is the game you’ve been waiting for if you want to play Indiana Jones and really have the experience of creeping around a dangerous, unpredictable, and mysterious old Egyptian tomb. If you can imagine Myst in ancient Egypt with tons of hilarious ways to die, you’re getting close to the idea.

During the first level of the game you have to solve a series of interconnected puzzles, gradually opening up a dozen spectacularly beautiful rooms far beneath the pyramid. This part of the game was simply pure joy.

The puzzles are quite challenging, and are mainly mechanical and translational in nature. For an experienced gamer, the challenge level may be just about right. And I’ve never played a game with as many amusing ways to die, complete with appropriately gross sound effects! In fact, there is even a way to die (which I will not spoil) before leaving your hotel room!

After fully opening up the tomb area, you move on into the Crypto-Egypt area, and the game marks an abrupt change in tone. In the twinkling of an eye, you realize you’ve gone from playing a game about ancient Egypt to a science fiction game!

This second level is also beautiful, it must be said, and also consists of a series of tricky puzzles that gradually open new rooms up. However, by this point you’re feeling a bit like you’ve missed some important information from the backstory. What’s going on? You wonder. Ah, aliens in ancient Egypt. Interesting concept, I guess. But if you play through Part II of this game expecting to eventually be rewarded with answers, you’re in for a big disapointment.

If level two was odd, level three is a real trial. You are catapulted 300 years into the future and you find yourself in the middle of a huge round fortress. I won't spoil the ending other than to say that, unless you played the game way back when, you will be surprised with what happens next.
