Ratings:

from Four Fat Chicks

Featuring a Live Concert and Music by Earth, Wind & Fire

The ship has slept for a thousand years. Waiting, Listen! It is awakening! ISIS stirs! Can it complete the mission it began a thousand years ago, or will history repeat itself? Will the path, accessible only once in each millennium, close before you learn all of the secrets to re-launch the magnificent ship which shares the name of the Goddess, your guide, ISIS?

You are the summoned one, personally chosen by ISIS to make the elaborate preparations necessary to launch the ship. Your most important task: find the three gems which harness the elemental forces of Earth, Wind & Fire - essential to power the ship. No easy task. You'll need all the help the goddess ISIS is willing to give.

Find the gems hidden in and around the giant pyramid which imprisons the ship. Each precious gem individually activates a section of the control panel as you prepare for launch.

But even after launch - be careful. You face the same challenge that stranded the original crew a millennium ago... how to pass through the dimensional gate before it closes.

Can you discover what the previous captain missed in time to save the ship... and perhaps the world.

Reviews:

Four Fat Chicks by Orb

"Isis is an interesting blend of flavors. It's a vanity piece to showcase the musical talents of Earth, Wind and Fire, who slid down the slippery slope of the downfall of disco in the early 1980s, bound with a good old-fashioned adventure game, set in ... where else? ancient Egypt. I actually found the whole concept rather quaint. I mean, every adventure gamer I know is also a big Earth, Wind and Fire fan—what about you?

"The plot is thus: you have been sent through a portal from your world to the world of Isis to assist her in sending her ship back to your world to save it utilizing the music of a early eighties disco band. Cha cha cha. Your job is to find three gems hidden somewhere in a pyramid and sailing ship and return them to where they belong, thus releasing the ship and an eight-minute Earth, Wind and Fire concert from their respective slumbers. The finale is definitely a retro salute to the early eighties—made me feel like I should be in a fern bar sipping a tequila sunrise and listening to Morris Day and the Time."

"The weird setup notwithstanding, this is a very cool little game. Cut scenes and transitions are smooth, and the design is a pretty mix of sci-fi and an Egyptian motif, with a great use of colors..."
