Description: Unknown Pharaoh will immerse you in an incredible adventure. You will take on the role of an archaeologist exploring an ancient Egyptian pyramid. Explore the pyramid chambers for symbols to grant you access to the next level. Decipher genuine ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs for clues and discover ancient Egyptian artefacts. Walk over massive gaps and watch out for traps. Face your fears of spiders, cobras, scorpions and mummies. This game use arm swing locomotion. This game takes approximately 50 to 60 minutes to complete.

Review: Unknown Pharaoh might look as cheap as a budget Indiana Jones movie, but I have to say it was scarier than I thought it would be. Maybe it is the inclosed corridors of the pyramid that makes it extra scary, or maybe I have just watched too many Mummy films. OK, so the game is raw and there is little more than a single hours worth of gameplay, but for that hour you will be immersed in the creepiness of the game. Each sound, each new open chamber filling you with dreed. Even though I did enjoy playing it I still feel as if £4.79 is a little too much and I would wait until it is for sale for half that price or hopefully less. If you love the Mummy films, this should be right up your street.
