Description: Remember those days long ago when the idea of gaming was only text? Those adventure games that drove you nuts, typing in 2 words “go north”, “Take Torch” etc…Frustrating you to no end trying to think of the right combination to just open the freakin door! Well, here it is. The chance to actually FINISH one of those games, in true graphical style! No more 2 word commands, just point and click your commands! (OK, this was for the PC version, which is now in VR so reach out, grab that item and use it!) This is a graphical remake of the 1978 Tandy game: Pyramid 2000. (A tribute to the original style games that started it all) We tried to stay as true to the text as possible, but due to not having a graphic artist we had to make do with what we could and it is progressing nicely!
Review: Pyramid VR described itself as a ‘Classic text-based adventure’ but it is much more common variety of adventure game than anything text-based. You go around the corridors of a pyramid looking for loot and what I can only presume is a way out and that is just about all I worked out was happening with this game. The game is just far too unfinished and unpolished to make it worth a download. Also, there has not been any updates for years so don’t expect it to get any better in the near future. If you can get it for a quid or less it will be worth a little look, but this is one game I would rather leave out in the desert to rot.
