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.

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.
