Apple Games Features Ankh
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' latest feature examines the Egyptian themed adventure game, Ankh. The 3D graphic adventure gives players the task of aiding young prince Assil in his efforts to rid himself of a curse. The article includes a review of the game and a collection of tips and tricks.

Borrowing its sense of humor from a variety of media — the Monkey Island series of games, the movies “ The Emperor’s New Groove ” and “ Shrek ,” and such series of novels as “ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ” and Discworld — Ankh brings wacky absurdity to ancient Egypt. Assil’s life is one of wealth and privilege, leading him to engage in the kind of reckless behavior typical of youths from any era. And, true to form, he shrugs off a death curse with the assumption that, hey, he’ll find a way to meet the Pharaoh — the only one who can lift the curse — and all will be well.

If only it was so easy. When Assil sneaks into his home after his misadventure, he arouses his father’s suspicion, which means he’ll need to find a way out other than the front door. True to its roots in the adventure genre, you guide Assil around his environment, picking up objects that will help him and engaging other characters in conversations that reveal clues pointing toward your next series of actions.
