Very good solitaire
I have been looking for another solitaire game to break up my addiction with adventure games. This is it.
I love the graphics and colors, almost 3D like. It gets harder as you go on. You collect building materials since you have to rebuild the city, and get power ups and such as you proceed.
It has quite a challenge, but no worries, you can replay everything to get that gold star.
I like all the different layouts and any cards that are open faced can be picked up. Even if they overlap. Wow, maybe it's just me but I have not seen that before.
This is right up there with the Chronicles of Emerland, which is still my favorite.
Keep those kind of games coming. Definitely not your everyday boring game. Truly enjoyable

SHUFFLE THE DECK!
If you like solitaire then your gonna love Solitaire Egypt! This game is similar to Seven Seas Solitaire (which I also love) where you are given a spread of several cards with the last card face up, and the remainder of cards in another pile that you draw from. The object is to play your cards onto the board either higher or lower for instance if a two is displayed on the board you can either play a three or an ace. If you don't have the correct card then you choose a card from your deck one at a time until you get a playable card. You can play either the campaign mode (story) or just free play, the story mode requires you meet the bronze, silver or gold level. In story mode, there is a penalty for using the hint or undo button. There are also wild cards to uncover which can be used as any card in the correct suite only. This is a good game to whittle away some down time. Enjoy!

Just want to add..
Just want to add my voice to this. I've already played it through twice and it is still a wonderful game! The music is fun and the gorgeous graphics contribute to the difficulty of the game. Instead of mindlessly clicking cards, I need to look at each individual one (so beautiful!) and that, along with the strategy necessary while choosing which one to use, makes for a great experience. Thanks so much for a lovely, fun game!

I was looking for a solitaire game last year but didn't find one I liked that was different. The hour trial went by so fast I was so disappointed. I know I'll buy this one and enjoy hours of fun. I like the different layouts and I love the colorful cards. This is a super solitaire game.

Different type of Solitaire
I love solitaire and anything with Egypt so I tried this out. I love it. It is truly something Egyptian. The graphics has a lot of Egyptian detailed along with the music. It is very challenging but relaxing. I think mainly because of the music. It's very simple and strait forward.

Different solitaire game. Cards change and game changes for a while to break it up a bit. Am glad I tried it and bought it. It is one of the few card games I wanted to play again and started over as a different player as soon as I completed the first one. Storyline is minor minor part of this, the good solitaire game is the thing I was looking for and got.

Almost - but not quite
I really wanted to love this game because I had so enjoyed Emerland and the screenshots and video indicated that this was similar. But sad to say this one fell short in a couple of areas. That's a real pity because it had the potential to be better and a couple of goldern opportunities missed. Firstly (and to me most importantly) was the missed opportunity of building the village. When the player completes a section of ten games the Egyptian official turns up to tell you how good you've been and now something can be built, like houses, farms etc. "Oh goodie!" thought me, looking forward to choosing something or doing something. Nope, instead it just appears and is far from exciting. And so it goes on, hand after hand. I put it to one side after 3 buildings and moved onto other games. It's still on my computer and I will finish it, but not in a joyful hurry of pleasure with which I played Emerland. The game is *almost* there, just a little more attention to detail to keep the player engaged and it would have been a winner. I've given it 4 stars because 3 just seemed so mean because the cards were beautiful and there were some interesting twists, like being able to play a card from further down in the layout (if it is highlighted), but that was not enough to earn 5 stars. Give it a go, but if you are coming to this having played Emerland be prepared to possibly be slightly disappointed. If you have not played Emerland, then I recommend that game rather than this one.

Seems like a good game, EXCEPT a horrible strain on the eyes in the "Campaign Mode" due to the colorful Egyptian styling.
I only played 3 hands, in the Campaign Mode, and my eyes started to hurt.
Because of the strain on my eyes, I will not be purchasing this game. Others have complained about this situation also.
To those of you that can deal with the "Campaign Mode" styling, you will have a nice game to play.
