Riddle of the Sphinx Review
12:21 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
CGOnline has posted a brief review of Riddle of the Sphinx, an adventure title by Omni Group published by Dreamcatcher Interactive. This point-and-click adventure might seem exiled to an antiquated genre, but the reviewer feels this title has much to offer not only to adventure game fans, but to those who are interested in Ancient Egypt's mythology, culture and architecture. Here is an excerpt:
Riddle is the product of over five years of effort by Jeff and Karen Tobler—a husband and wife team whose shared passion for Egypt is evident in every moment of this adventure. Their depiction of ancient chambers and temples (real and imagined) is remarkable—hieroglyphics cover the walls and richly detailed treasures lie strewn about in various stages of disrepair. A visit to any Egyptian web site with pictures will confirm the accuracy with which they have recreated the inside of the Great Pyramid and the site around the Sphinx. The Toblers' commitment to this game is most obvious when you read the credits—the pair is responsible for the game's design, direction, animation, and programming.Sphinx has the added attraction of very low system requirements, as is common with most adventure games. Visit CGonline for the rest of the review; the game itself can be purchased on the Dreamcatcher web site.
