Description: Explore the Ancient Egyptian ruins to see what they might have to say about the life and culture of early civilizations. 1323 BC: a time when Egypt is a recognized world power. It’s young leader, King Tutankhamun has passed away and buried in what would become one of the greatest icons of Ancient Egypt. The tomb is littered with treasures and artifacts symbolic of Ancient Egyptian culture.

Review: I’ve always thought the pyramids and most of the history of ancient Egypt is fascinating, so getting the chance to wander around King Tut’s tomb was like a dream come true. With 2 modes a “discovery” mode and a “Treasure hunting” mode, you get a couple of ways to explore this VR tomb. I’m not really sure how big I thought it was going to be (maybe I have watched too many Indiana Jones movies) but it is quite a small place. But there is lots of treasures and artefacts to see and read up about. Then, when you know all about the tomb you can play the Treasure hunting mode and challenge your friends to find all the items in a quicker time than you.

There isn’t much to do in this app, but the Concepts category is there for a good reason, it allows app developers to test ideas on us the public. I loved the treasure hunting mode and found the discovery mode very educational, I really did learn a lot about King Tut’s life! If you have ever wondered about who King Tut was or about his tomb download this and learn all about it. But if you have no interest in that, download it and play the timed find ‘n’ seek game, its small but loads of fun.
