Game Reviews

If You've entered the pyramids of Egypt, and now you must work your way through 24,000 rooms in search of the Pharaoh's hidden tomb.

In Matchbox's Pyramids of Ra, every room is a maze of tiles, which explode when you, as a bouncing ball, jump on them. Don't linger on any one tile too long, or your energy will mn out. Destroy all the tiles and bounce back to the start box, which is the tile you began from. Then it's onto the next room. You get a password after completing any room. You would never get to the mysteries of the ancient tombs any other way.

As if finding your way through these mazes wasn't tricky enough, some rooms have special tiles. The two-bounce tiles have to be jumped on twice before they explode and the three-bounce tiles require three springs. There are tiles that constantly move back and forth horizontally and others that move up and down vertically. Jump tiles catapult you tram one tile to another. You'll also encounter vertical flip tiles, horizontal tiles, reverse moving tiles, unknown tiles, and more.

As a Game Boy puzzler, Pyramids of Ra competes with the best of them. Because the action is not complex, the graphics are adequate. They don't need to be elaborate. The Egyptian high-pitched tunes, however, begin to grate on you after awhile. If you're dying to know what's in Tut's tomb and you have LOTS of time and patience, Pyramids of Ra will keep you hoppinfor quite some time.

ProTips:

  • When you encounter a moving tile, don't stop to time it just right! Just keep jumping.
  • It's best to skip along the outside tiles first and then work into the middle.
