The Awakening of Mummies (Nintendo Switch)

Publisher: Silesia Games

What I Paid: $1.50

Verdict: Not Shovelware. 100%ed it.

What I Say:

At first this appears to be a trivial puzzle game involving guiding a mummy from one point to another, avoiding simplistic traps. This quickly becomes much more difficult by the time you get to the second level of the pyramid, where you guide TWO mummies who move in sync. Getting the mummies into the right positions whilst avoiding traps is quite challenging, and it gets even more challenging by the third level.

There is a great deal of satisfaction gained when you finally solve the harder puzzles, so stick with it and you should enjoy it. I 100%ed this one, and once I worked out the finer details of mummy moving mechanics, the more difficult puzzles became less challenging.

Movement is a little odd, utilizing the D-pad to turn and move forwards, but this slightly counter-intuitive arrangement makes more sense as the levels get harder.

What They Say:

The Mummies are trapped inside the Pyramid where the evil Pharaoh Cleo has imprisoned them. Use your puzzle-solving skills to guide all the Mummies through the various chambers, but watch out for traps!

Control the group of Mummies together as you navigate holes, crumbling floors, spears that come out of the ground, and more! Collect the specific Runes of each Mummy and arrive with all of them, at the same time, to their respective Totems and then open the door and move to the next chamber of the pyramid.
