I knew this was a word game going in... what I didn't know is that it is
basically an Egyptian-themed Hangman! Your goal is to reveal seven
words, from the bottom of the pyramid to the top. The bottom word is 8
letters, the second one up is 7 letters, then 6, then 5, and so on to 3
letters at the top of the pyramid.
Each time you click on a letter, you lose a little bit of vitality. When
you lose all of your vitality, the game is over and you have to start
again from the beginning. To regain vitality in the gauge, you can try
to solve the word all at once. You also get bonuses to your vitality
from unused letters. There are bonuses you can get for quick solving,
finding letters back to back, etc.
I got to level four before I ran out of vitality, and it took me 28 minutes to get there. In other words (pun intended
), I didn't get very far.
This game would be more fun if there was a "theme" per pyramid, rather
than totally random guessing. Out of the 4 pyramids I did, only the
third one had a theme - animals (and was still hard!) Go figure, I
enjoyed the 3rd level more than the others.
I like the game, but I think that it could use some improvement.
