It’s not going to be long until iOS gamers can embark on a new puzzler — one that lets them explore the ancient tombs of Cairo. Because Tama Games has announced that it’s bringing a brand new title called Escape from the Pyramid to the App Store in the near future, and from where we stand the game is worth looking out for.
Over at TouchArcade’s forums, Tama Games explains: “We wanted to create a visually unique game, giving it the feeling you are controlling the characters in an ancient moving papyrus.” The developer continues, however:
But art is not a all, not by a long shot. We have spared no effort in creating intricate, complex levels, polished and with extreme attention to detail, with challenging and clever puzzles to test your reflexes (and your patience!) as your try to find your way through the maze-like pyramid.
Further features include a total of 45 levels, three worlds to explore, and collectable gems and beetles; there are also bosses, Game Center-powered leaderboards and achievements, and “deadly traps and hidden doors,” according to Tama Games.
Escape from the Pyramid.
Here’s a complete list of features:
We have a plethora of nasty little critters inside the dark tunnels
Gems and golden beetles to collect
Deadly traps and hidden doors
Hidden canopic jars giving you a time-limited boon from the goods
Over 45 highly polished levels
3 different worlds
Leaderboards and achievements
Below, we’ve included a selection of screenshots along with a demo video showing Escape from the Pyramid’s puzzler-runner mode of gameplay.
According to Tama Games, Escape from the Pyramid should be available to download on the App Store “within the next two months,” and it’ll be optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. We’ll let you know once it’s available to download and install.
