Release: June 2010
A temple is looted. A ship disappears without a trace on the Nile. And an incredible treasure is lost. For ever? Not if young Thara and her somewhat awkward companions solve the mystery!
This cryptic treasure hunt in ancient Egypt teems with objects from luscious to ludicrous, and all garnished with dashes of finely tuned humour. Never one to pass up a quick quip, clever Thara must find a legendary ancient artefact to save her mortally ill father’s life.
The player searches the scenarios of the Ankh world, all designed in great detail, looking for countless hidden artefacts and important clues. The Help function is available to players at all times when solving the tricky puzzles.
