Mummy’s Treasure is really rather hard. It’s a physics based puzzler. You have to collect all the treasure while destroying the Mummy and Skeleton heads. This is done by carefully removing various blocks in order to knock the bad things down into the abyss. This really isn’t as simple as it sounds. While the first few levels ease you in gently offering you some quite obvious puzzles, it’s not long before you’ll be scratching your head with confusion. Indeed some will absolutely baffle you.
Rather than relying solely on careful moves, some of the puzzles within Mummy’s Treasure requires fast movements too – quickly removing some of the optional blocks for instance in order to clear the skeletons. Other levels require you to take into account gravity which can greatly affect the course of the level.
Further difficulties lie when you wish to get the level done in the lowest number of moves. Each level offers a par requirement – a number of moves in which you can get the puzzle done in. Plus there are gems to collect too. Gain a gold medal by completing all of this and you can feel a wave of satisfaction. After all, Mummy’s Treasure is frequently perplexing.
Of course no game like this would be complete without a string of achievements and online leaderboards. Each is good to see and gives you further impetus to do well. Mummy’s Treasure is indeed excellent fun if you’ve got the patience. It’s ideal in fact for those who have yet to be truly tested by so many other physics based puzzle games. Finally there’s a game that’s really going to test your lateral thinking.
