Ankh: Battle of the Gods

Adventure Classic Gaming
23 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Ankh: Battle of the Gods is the third game in the Ankh series starring Assil set in ancient Egypt (or at least somewhere slightly influenced by ancient Egypt). This time, you must navigate Assil safely through a number of comic scenes in order to defeat the villain Set (or Seth as the game has it) of the Egyptian pantheon. The sequel is developed by Deck13 Interactive, the same German developer of previous games of the series.

  • Conclusion: Of course, we’re rather fortunate to have the opportunity to play the game at all. For a long time, Ankh 3 was one of a growing number of games that seemed uncertain ever to get a localized English release. Even now, it’s available only through digital download at The Adventure Shop, so while the Battle of the Gods may be decided in this game, the war against publisher indifference hasn’t yet been won.

  • Excerpt: From the ancient Egypt comes the tale of Assil, the son of an architect of the Pharaoh. Assil has brought upon himself a death curse when he accidentally disturbs the tomb of a mummy while throwing a party inside a pyramid. His dad does not believe him and thinks that his rebellious son is just making up the story as an excuse to stay up all night. So, the young Assil must now go on a quest to save himself by reversing the curse.

Ankh: Heart of Osiris

Adventure Classic Gaming
3 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Ankh: Heart of Osiris, developed by Deck13 Interactive and published by XIDER Games, is the sequel to Ankh, a game more or less in the zany cartoon tradition of LucasArts' classic adventure games such as The Secret of Monkey Island or Sam and Max Hit the Road. Ankh: Heart of Osiris continues the story from the first game, taking the player back to Ancient Egypt to match wits with the evil Osiris, God of the Underworld.

  • Conclusion: If you've yet to play either, both Ankh and Heart of Osiris can best be described as satisfying but rarely inspired. Identical almost to a fault, the new game once again offers up a solid experience for the 8-10 hours or so you'll spend playing, likely meeting reasonable expectations but never really exceeding them.

Ankh: Heart of Osiris review (PC)

HonestGamers
16 May 2007
  • Excerpt: finishes. After a misunderstanding with Thana over a love letter sent by the spurned pharaoh’s daughter, he hits the tiles, gets wrecked and wakes up in a side ally with a killer headache and a conspicuous lack of Ankh. After being convinced by a clairvoyant bet-taker that his fate was inter-tined with the odd artefact, Assil is grudgingly forced to start a new quest all over again.

Ankh if You Like to Laugh

GIN
26 February 2007
  • Excerpt: You may have noticed, but I'm a bit of a nostalgia freak. I like a lot of older things (cough, cough, Civ II), and harken back to the glory days of yesteryear. Sometimes I long for the days of irreverent comical adventure games, games where setting up the horrible pun is almost as important as furthering the story. Thank God they still make games like Ankh. Ankh tells the tale of Assil, son of the Pharaoh's chief architect.

  • Excerpt: Behold Assil... Adventures about Egypt usually deal with ancient treasures and the mysteries of the past. German developer Deck 13 decided to create a totally different Egyptian adventure. The story of Ankh starts with the young Egyptian boy Assil stealing his father's keys. His father is the pharaoh's architect, and Assil thinks having a party in an ancient tomb would be awesome. Unfortunately, Assil manages to get cursed by the owner of the tomb, a mummy.
  • Pros: Gripping story, interesting characters
  • Cons: A number of illogical puzzles, lasts less than fifteen hours
