Escape the Lost Kingdom
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.

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!

Rule No. 1 - Keep Your Family Together.
Your family is taking a trek across Egypt but your daughter brought along the cat, who got loose in a museum and ended up in a Pyramid. Of course, you all go in the pyramid after it....then...well havoc ensues. It's not bad enough you are lost in this pyramid but when a secret door opens off goes your daughter on her own - then BAM - there's a cave in and you tell her to stay there - but does she? You find a side door and proceed that way but before your son can get through - BAM AGAIN - the door closes. You holler for him to stay there - but does her?
This is a story about a family lost in a pyramid because they couldn't follow Rule No.1 - stay together. You get the opportunity to place each of the son, daughter and parents. Going through rooms, finding items, getting lost, etc
The graphics are poor. Probably because it was meant for 3D vision glasses - it says that at the beginning of the game.
It was ok but I won't purchase it. However, I always try to recommend others to give it a whirl.

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.
