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.

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.

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

Fun-Filled Hidden object
It's really a good game to play and kind of learn about different egyption items that they used back then and now.If you like history you'll love this type of game.

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!

I did not care for this game
The graphics were a mix of cartoon and picture, which seemed unbalanced to me, and the storyline just did not draw me in. I found clicking on the goggles and the amulet distracting from the overall play of the game.
