Summary: i searched for a digital copy from this game, for weeks. then i finally found it on gamefly. after that, my Ankh trilogy was complete and i started to play it. now i can say that this searching for the first Ankh game was no waste of time or money! Yes, graphics are may be not very smooth...but i like that old skool look. dialogue and characters are funny. voice acting is good in english. and i just love that ancient-egypt scenery.
Summary: Ever come across games that do NOT want to play with you ? Ankh is one of them. And it is more stubborn than most ! After a cartoony Intro, featuring silly-loking characters, that cannot be skipped, uninteresting dialogs take over, which can be skipped (thank Isis !). Scene #1.The Camel Wash. Don't think you're gonna wash a camel, no ! Instead, armed with a broom, it's cleaning time for you. That means removing 20 animals provided you can FIND them !
Summary: After playing only 20 minutes of the free trial, I was still on the first screen and knew this game was not for me. The objects are extremely small and I found some of them simply by random clicking. I like games that are challenging, but not frustrating. The characters are just silly and the graphics only average. Won't even finish the trial.
Summary: I only played the german version of this game, which is the original, so I can't say anything about the quality of the translations or speakers. But what I can say is that the german version is a very very good game! It really reminds me of the good old Lucas Arts adventures that we all love so much, because it has a similar style, great gags, logical riddles and VERY good speakers that fit to the characters, which create a very convenient atmosphere.

Summary: In diesem Bericht möchte ich euch heute über das PC - Spiel: Ankh: Die verlorenen Schätze aus dem Hause Deck 13 berichten. Es handelt sich hierbei um ein Wimmelbild - Spiel welches seit Dezember 2009 im Handel erhältlich ist. Ich habe mir dieses Spiel gekauft, da Wimmelbild - Spiele wie ich finde eine nette Abwechslung für zwischendurch sind und es sich ganz nett angehört hat.
