"4h20 net gaming time - 64 (35/40 + 29/30) coins and only 6 out of 12 secret gems found but that was sufficient to get enough weaponry to deal with the sometimes numerous enemies : harpies , big beetles , big scorpions , skeletons , dogs and demidogs and a few others. That was a long game where we can recognize the builders's multiple signatures, not only with the secrets system where you can choose which weapon/ammos you want when a blue gem is found, also with the gameplay based mostly on thorough non linear exploration of the maps. Not a lot of traps , a couple of torches puzzles , a couple of timed doors (i largely prefered the one in the first level) , a few puzzles with levers, and some good jumps especially in the last area where you jump with the torch on floating blue crystals. Some good ideas but also time consuming tasks for little reward (a rope swing to get uzi clips or flares). Some rooms are very beautiful. To the classic Cleopatra palace textures and objects the author has added some other stuff, like beautiful plants. The texturing is made with a lot of care and lighting is pleasant. The atmosphere is correct although more could have been done with music and there is a few missing sounds for objects and for the footsteps we only have the stone sfx. A good level for players who like to explore and are challenged to find everything." - eRIC (05-Jul-2020)
