Escape the Lost Kingdom
Very entertaining and interesting game.
A family goes to Egypt and break apart because of a curse. You will help bring them together.
For this you can choose which character you will play - and each has something that helps: the mother and father, Laura and Henry have tools and diary; Francis, the son has googles with glyph vision and Emily, the daughter has a time amulet .
Great story that takes place in Historical Egypt, in the pyramids, sphinxes, etc.. Really interesting.
Excellent VO, good sound, very crisp and well done graphics, really good atmosphere.
Good amount of HOS and mini games, average challenge.
You can disable help (tips that appear at the top of the screen).
Really pleasant game, provides great fun.

Fun history adventure
I don't usually like adventure games without a great hint system but it was worth occasionaly having to consult a walkthrough for this one.
I loved the family interactions, the historical setting and interesting historical objects

A Triumph And HO Clinic as GOJII GAMES Shows Us HOW!
This game was riveting from beginning to end, and, even if you're NOT a lover of Antiquities and Egyptology, you'll love this game, nevertheless.
Gojii Games used its HOS sparingly, and they didn't take long to figure out. I really liked that. Other developers could learn a lot from Gojii Games by examining their hidden object areas.
As for the game, itself, it finds a husband and wife, kids and cat, taking a tour of Egyptian Antiquities only to get trapped inside the pyramid and burial place of a lost King of Egypt.
They get split up and must find each other by going through secret passageways, breaking down and blowing up walls, and solving many, many fascinating puzzles.
I could go on and on, but I must say that this game is a "must buy!"
Great graphics and music. Good voice-overs, and an excellent storyline all decorate this exciting game.
I loved it!

LOTS OF FUN
Lots of fun to play. Average length game divided into 5 chapters. Logical game play. If you have spare 3D glasses lying around, you can get the 3D experience. Play 3 characters as you explore the museum, looking for the lost family cat: Emily, Francis, and the parents, in whatever order you wish. Mom maintains the journal, dad has the tools, Francis has glyph vision which lets you see the active parts of a scene and Emily has a time amulet, which lets you see the past and help solve puzzles.
There is a map and ?location cleared? appears once you?ve done everything in a scene. Voice acting is natural and believable. Puzzles are fairly easy, although you will need to use the amulet or glyph vision or consult the journal for the solution. At first it was confusing only being able to play one character, chosen at the beginning of each chapter, but after a while, it became a lot of fun. I chose a different order for playing the characters the second time I played. It can make the difficulty seem different. Ending was satisfactory except we don?t know whether the cat was left in the museum.

Good adventure game - plenty to do.
I thought this was a very good adventure / hidden object game with plenty to do. There is a lot of back tracking between scenes to find items that are needed to complete a previous scene and so progress through the game. After a cursed Pharaoh traps a whole family in a newly opened museum, you have to play as each member of the family to navigate the spooky tomb and eventually free them all.The voice overs are great at narrating the written dialogue which saves a lot of reading.The graphics are clear and colourful and there is a handy notification when each scene is cleared and each level is completed. The puzzles are quite simple and mainly straightforward but a few require a bit more thinking. The maze is rather challenging. The hidden objects are reasonably clear and most of them are easy to locate. Only a couple required a hint. I only used the walkthrough blog a couple of times. All in all a very satisfying and interesting game. Worth the money to buy.

Not Great... Not completely awful
With the addition of a better hint button to show you an exact location to highlight the items you missed (items that I must add tend to blend entirely too well into the scenes making it VERY difficult to find), this might have been more enjoyable and relaxing compared to just being frustrating... The "help" buttons don't help at all, just tell you to keep looking around... no good when you are trying to find a tiny object in a big scene that blends in!
Also a better map and way to get around to the different rooms, might have been better...
The voice acting I found very annoying, and the storyline just not that enthralling or interesting at all... Also it was quite short.
While is wasn't great, it wasn't completely awful, but there are most definitely much better games to download!

A GREAT GAME FOR KIDS, FUN, EASY, SHORT, HISTORICAL EGYPT
BASED ON COMPLETED GAME IN EXPERT MODE
This is a cute, fun, easy, short game. I enjoyed playing it, but the whole time I thought maybe I had purchased a kids' game by accident. As the other reviewers have said, it takes place in Historical Egypt which is awesome. The atmosphere is amazing and makes you feel as if you really are travelling with the family. Of course the family becomes separated and trapped while looking for the cat and have to figure their way out. To do this, they must restore and reverse history. It's a lot of fun. My only caution is I think this is more a game for kids, not adults. I found it to be way too juvenile for me, but I'm judging it "as if" I were still in that age bracket. By today's standards it seemed too old-fashioned. You just get pictures of the characters and their lips don't move (for example.) If you want a game you can play with your kids this is it. Enjoy!
Egypt, lots of amazing scenes
Time amulet and goggles the kids use
Game unfolded in chapters
As I finished a scene it said "area cleared"
Map that showed active areas, but it was not a jump map
Journal which gave me clues
Being different characters within the same game
Easy HOS and mini games
Poor graphics, items seemed blurry to me
Way too short and ended abruptly
Lack of challenge
BOTTOM LINE: Great kids'/family game that's easy and quick, but not a game experts will enjoy.
