Ancient Puzzle Challenges

Immerse yourself in the mysteries of the magical Caves of Dun-Huang

Long ago, a cruel demon tried to destroy a sacred spring in the caves. He was subdued for a while, but reemerged stronger than ever before. For centuries, travelers who came from far and wide in search of the heling waters of the spring had to contend with this dark force.

Your task is to enter the 12 caves and attempt to solve the countless ancient puzzles that stand before you.

The stories and images in Quest for Karma are based on the artwork and legends of the 500 Caves of Dun-Huang - some which date back 1700 years. The thousands of murals and sculputres in the caves have enchanted visitors for centuries. Now you too can visit the world that mesmerized Marco Polo.

Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, May 1996

"If your were fascinated by picture frame puzzles or hooked on the Rubik Cube as a kid, then you're going to love Karma: Curse of the 12 Caves. From the opening challenges to the caves below, you'll find yourself scratching your head and leaning closer to your monitor as you advance through the game. There is a guide of sorts: a goddess who appears from time to time in the form of a wise man (go figure). If you listen closely, this goddess/wise man will give you clues."

Computer Games Strategy Plus, May 1996

"Discis Entertainment brings you Karma: Curse of the 12 Caves, a top-notch puzzle-solving game, based on the legends of ancient Chinese caves. Some puzzles rely on manual dexterity, others on ingenuity, and still others on raw luck (if you get the solution, you are lucky; they are tough puzzles). Overall, the game is of excellent quality if you like puzzle games. There really isn't any exploration, but there is excellent animation and excellent graphics as you travel from one puzzle to another.

"Excellent visuals, variety, tough challenges and replayabilty make Karma a sure bet for serious puzzle fans. Spelunk soon!"

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey

"The game is of a piece with DreamCatcher's other two irresistible puzzle adventures, Jewels of the Oracle and Jewels II: The Ultimate Challenge. This time around, we're not in a newly discovered ancient Sumerian site, but rather in a series of caves hiding an ancient Chinese well. The well is supposed to have magical qualities, but a demon has sealed it up with a devilish series of 14 puzzles."

"As I said, these puzzles are similar in format and construction to the ones in the two other games. However, there are only 14 of them, making this more of a hip-pocket version of the same idea."

"As with Jewels and Jewels II, the puzzles are graced with lovely graphics, atmospheric music, and a thin story to tie them all together. And as with those two games, these elements add to the gaming experience and make it more compelling than simply flat series of puzzles. It's a fun, intriguing, relaxing, and compelling environment to hang out in while you tackle these challenges."
