Ancient Quest of Saqqarah
Not your typical match 3
This is a nice long game. There are 5 different types of match 3 plays and multiple levels for each of the 5 types; each progressively more difficult. The graphics and transitions are interesting and the challenge level was just right. The gorilla 'guide' cheers you on, adding character and fun. This is a game you'll enjoy playing multiple times

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah - My All Time Favourite!!!!
This was the first match 3 game I bought at least twelve months ago.
This is my go to game when you want a challening match 3 experience.
Must be on my twentieth time through (trying to beat my points record).
7 different types of match 3 from token in hand, rotate to the dreaded logic puzzles (level 3 the most difficult of all the temples).
Three different levels for each temple going from easy (level1 to hard level 3). You can complete all three levels for each temple in one go if you like.
72 games per temple by 7 temples gives you a plenty long game but you can do just a few games at a time.
Tip: for temple of thot (the logic puzzles) save up your hints for the last 6-12 games of level 3 (you will need them).
Also the tiles are not jumbled very much so look for where the most of one colour are located. If you get confused (or use alot of moves) just restart the game.
To speed up the scarab collecting discarded tiles just keep clicking on him to make him move faster.

Really Different Match Three!
I love Match Threes but they are all typically the same. This is definitely not the case. Each set of puzzles is more challenging than the last. I wish they would come out with a "sequel" but I don't know how that would apply.
I enjoy playing Saqqarah every chance I get and absolutely recommend it!

Beautiful, Challenging and Rewarding!
I had purchased this game years ago, long before I had joined Big Fish Games. Decided to give it a whirl again. What a marvelous game! The graphics, the sounds and the variety and advancing difficulty of the temple puzzles is extraordinary.
When I first saw the monkey, I thought this might be a bit childish. Was I ever wrong! This is so much more than a Match 3 game. It is an exercise in logic and adventure. If you think this type of game is boring, give this one a try. It will delight and surprise you!

Challenging multi-level/multi-puzzle game!
I have played this game to completion more than once. The puzzles (there are 7 kinds, one for each god or goddess of the pantheon) are fun & challenging (thank goodness for youtube!) & addictive. The graphics are crisp, the voice over is informative, & I love the Egyptian theme. Extension Saqpaqs for more levels are available online as well. Great fun for all ages! Hours & hours of game play!

This game is full of variety and innovation for a match 3 game which, is also full of many, many, levels of challenges.
The game quality is superb from colourful graphics through to the sound, with no recognisable flaws.
I enjoyed the fact it sounded a bit like pinball when playing too, which added to the fun element of beating seth on each level. Also, the comedy lazy sweeper scarab makes me chuckle every time I click it to move faster, I'm sure it actually says ow! LOL.
All the voiceovers are clear and easy to understand, tho the voice of Bast was creepy and sounded a bit vampiristic. The rules for each game type are also very well put together with the choice to switch of the reminder boxes if you wish.
The monkey, what to say about the monkey? Well he's fab in many ways because he helps you to battle seth by throwing magic at the boards. However, this is not always to your advantage after you've spent ages lining up links for a big gem blast then he blows it up, aaaarrgghh! LOL He also sounds like brian blessed, loud and domineering.
Overall this game is nothing short of fantastic and is my new fave game. Love it!
