Description: Desolate Sands is an Adventure Puzzle Game.You will be taken back centuries in 1940’s where your plane crashes next to a tomb. The tomb holds untold secrets, and you will soon find yourself journeying into its depths. Gamers will have the opportunity to face rooms full of challenging puzzles and only those who can solve them will be able to progress deeper.
Review: Desolate Sands is your classic pyramid adventure game. There are wonderful treasures to see and some puzzle to solve both inside and outside the temple. Overall the game does look good, while still needing a little polish here and there. The gameplay is also OK with full-motion and easy to use controls that help you get straight into the game. With just over 2 hours worth of content, I found myself enjoying it, but never really getting into it that much as it just felt too generic, too clean to be a gritty adventure game. Yes, its worth a look, but it could do with a lot more spit and shine.
