Apple Games' latest feature examines the Egyptian themed adventure game, Ankh: Battle of the Gods. In the 3D graphic adventure players once again join Prince Assil and his friends who are this time thrust into the middle of a struggle for control of the Egyptian pantheon. The article includes a review of the game, a brief history of adventure games, a look at Egyptian gods Horus and Seth, and a collection of tips and tricks.

Ankh: Battle of the Gods takes Assil from Cairo to Luxor, capital of ancient Egypt, and eventually to the Hotel of the Gods ó from there he travels to the Viking village where Thor lives and returns to the Hotel for the climactic contest. Against her better instincts, Thara accompanies him on his latest madcap adventure. At least Horus offers some advice along the way.

As in the previous two games in the Ankh series, you navigate conversations with NPCs (non-player characters), some of who donít always want to give him what he wants, at least not right away. You may need to try a discussion several times and pursue different options before striking the right one. Donít forget to switch between Thara and Assil when necessary ó the pair can share inventory items with each other, even if theyíre not in the same room, and each has strengths and weaknesses, such as Tharaís swimming ability and Assilís fear of water.
