Reviews:

Adventure Gamer by Ray Ivey, October 9, 1999

"First of all, even though it’s just a collection of twenty-four puzzles in fancy dressing, the fancy dressing is all-important. Thin as the story is, it creates a wonderful mood. The graphics of the underground tomb are not exactly beautiful, but they are certainly atmospheric. The music is absolutely beautiful, haunting and evocative.

"And the puzzles themselves! What a beautiful collection. Graphically stunning, at times mind-bendingly challenging and brilliantly conceived, they truly are jewels. Some are three-dimensional, such as a tricky maze that spans all six sides of a cube. Some are conceptual, like finding unlikely pairs of a collection of objects. Even the puzzles that are based on true standards, such as sliders and jigsaws, are presented in such a beautiful way that you don’t care that they’re not revolutionary."

"There is a built-in hint system that allows you to receive oblique, but sometimes helpful, comments from a triangular-faced sage that lives at the top of your screen. Another big plus is that you have a choice of two levels of difficulty. Even better – you can make this choice puzzle-by-puzzle, rather than having to stick with one choice for the entire game."
