**One of the Flash player updates has cause a few depth graphical bugs. This makes the Cellar Entrance level seem impossible but there are switches for the ice cuebs, they are just 'invisible/underneath the floor tikes' (try listen closely to the sound)

For you medal hunters: prepare to get frustrated at the crazy doors!

Indeed, it's an awesome game. It just needs a walkthrough video.

Wow, those controls are surprisingly hard to master, considering that they are based 45 degrees to the true planes that you're working along. I was really struggling to get going and then the spike traps really got me on the first run, so maybe I'll come back to them later... much later.

Not that I'm put off, this game is pretty neat, with good puzzles, decent music and pretty funny graphics, which keep everything together, giving a very nice presentation to the final product, which I'm surprised to say has not achieved anything spectacular, with a score of just over 3.5, no medals and all of this despite having medals attached to it! Surprising, to say the least.

If I were to suggest anything major, I'd rotate the screen, so that the controls are easier, because I've played a few games in my time and I think it would make the game easier to play and therefore more accessible to the masses, should they be after a good Indiana Jones / Ancient Egyptian themed game.

Just a quick aside, when you get resurrected, it's almost like you were cuboy, which I found a nice way of flattering Messrs Arbuckle and Dennis, for their aforementioned work.

Keep up the good work, give us more games and medals to play with, I'll be back to see if I can achieve the medals for this momentarily!

Yeah, the 45 degreesness was a terrible idea. It looks cool, and I'm well versed in old isometric games which had these sort of controls Mario RPG etc so its the norm to me, not realising how different it is to control for anyone else...

Rotating the entire thing 45 degrees is easy in code, remove lines and tada, the problem is all of the art assets require being drawn at a different angle so it wont be an update to the game. If there is a sequel however, it will be straight on!

Cheers

Great puzzler, but the isometric setting is a big minus. Difficulty level is a bit harder than usual, but the learning curve is excellent - this provides for a great and challenging experience from level 1.

Not extremely frustrating (except the "Crazy doors" level - It's the hardest level overall, much worse than the last one). As said before, only the iso pov is a minus, but not much.
