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.

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!

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

Great family fun
A nice game with no demonic elements, nor fireworks. Just follow different characters (the same chapter is played in three different versions. The settings are a bit monochrome, but it is supposed to look that way, inside a pyramid, The HOS are few and not too hard. The minipuzzles are interesting, and in keeping with the theme.
Ancient Egypt is always worth revisiting, and this is a nice excursion with no macabre themes.

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.

I wanted to like this game, but had so much trouble getting it to play nicely with my security software that it was very frustrating. I finally resorted to disconnecting a laptop from my home network and shutting down the security software to get the game to play properly. This has never happened with any of the 90+ games I've purchased on Big Fish. Having said all that, the game was okay. A family is visiting Egypt and gets separated in a tomb that contains a curse.
Once the family members are separated, you end up playing as each family member (and you choose the order of play). Each family member has a "hook" during game play - the son has glyph goggles, the daughter has a time amulet and the parents have a tool kit. There are HOS and mini games. There is a map showing the location of each family member and which areas have been cleared. The map is helpful as you work your way through the game.
The graphics are okay, the family members are cartoonish and didn't fit with the background graphics. The voice overs are well done.
The game has a satisfying ending. If I had not experienced so many difficulties trying to get the game to run, I would have rated it higher. I was so frustrated, it affected my perception of the game. I was disappointed that, after all the effort to get the game to run, it was a very short game.
