Curse of the Pharaoh: The Quest for Nefertiti
Curse of the Pharaoh Trilogy - Part II - Solid, Good Quality Game
Deserving 5 Stars.A crazed brother deeply affected by an Egyptian curse. Egyptian artifacts, settings, great music, well lit hidden objects all contribute to the depth of this well-researched game. The story line continued from Napoleon's Secrets which I call Part I and then Part III--Tears of Sekhmet. Other fun stuff going on such as finding coins to make store purchases, using tools in scenes and clicking on "Wipi" who pops in at the screen edge, for extra hints. It's a shame these really fun games fell through the cracks of being really great games. BFG could sell these as a combo pack as I purchased separately during their awesome Sale but would not have otherwise.

This is a lot of 'spot the difference', which is probably my least favourite type of game. There may have been a storyline, but it was completely irrelevant to the game. If you paused, the game would show you where the differences are - fine for me, as I just wanted it to be over, but if you want some challenge in your difference-spotting, it takes away all the fun.
Having said that, I really loved the Egyptian setting, and the graphics were quite nice. The music was OK.

Spot the difference game.
I wouldn't really class this as a HoG. It was basically a drawn out game of spot the differences. Which I don't really enjoy. The only Hidden Object scenes were easy and repetitious as you had to find the same pieces of the same item for each one. And only 3 or 4 other items. The 'puzzles' were childishly simple. I hated that an area would shine if you took more than a few seconds looking for an item. If I want hints I will choose to use them. Not worth the credit I wasted on it.

Curse of the Pharaoh : The Quest for Nefertiti
This was about the 3rd game I ever bought in 2008 and still play it.
It's kind of difficult to describe but it's sort of an Interactive Spot the Difference Puzzle Adventure with a few HO's.
In each chapter, you play between a number of scenes spotting the differences (and collecting coins). In each scene you get an inventory item and you have to find where to put it. It could be in the scene you found it in or one of the others.
When you've completed those scenes, you unlock a secret room where you have to find a handful of hidden objects by shadow. You also need to find the fragments of a pharoahs mask.
At the end of each chapter, you then unlock a final secret room with the mask and use the objects you've just found to complete a puzzle.
Don't be put off by the too much handholding first chapter as it's just learning you the ropes.
Absolutely brilliant game and I can't recommend it enough.

I really like the Pharaoh's Trilogy. Good Atmosphere, great music, nice graphics, and a lot of things to do: collect coins, earn extra hints, several and funny puzzles, besides the HOS, that are very clear.
A very good way to relaxing and having fun.

I did have to start over once but
that's sort of what it's all about, sometimes you win, sometimes you don't. but i was having so much fun, i didn't mind starting over. AND there is a walk thru so if you are kind of new, you have a life line! like i have said before, after playing one of the games, i had to play the other 2! i will play this one again.

A relatively short game with lots of spot-the-difference scenes, as well as puzzles that close out each chapter that are easy to moderate in difficulty . . . The story line is interesting, & is continued in the next two games of the current trilogy . . .
I wasn't too impressed with the graphics, which I think contributes to making some of the differences to find in some scenes an extra challenge . . . This is mitigated by the game giving you a hint with a little sparkle near the difference, though, in the easy mode of play . . .
Wipi, the little companion, is always on hand to give some help . . . !
With the option of either easy or difficult modes, this is a very fun game . . .

buy it on sale
I purchased this game as well as the next two in the story. It's a good game, relaxing, easy-to-see object hunts, but it has it's faults. First, this game froze on me twice while playing. I had to shut down the game and go back in. I did not lose my place in the story, but it was annoying to suddenly have it lock up. This problem was corrected in the next consecutive games, so you can continue the story without interruption. I purchased all three during one of Felix's specials, so I feel I got what I paid for.

Curse of the Pharaoh The Quest for Nefertiti
The challenge and fun are taken away from the game due to the hint tells you where everything is. It does not give you any time to have a good look. Very disappointed as the other two Curse of the Pharoahs I have are good. It is more differences than hidden object.
