Xider Games' Ankh is a point & click adventure game where you play as Assil, a young Egyptian man in trouble, making his way through treacherous Cairo, avoiding evil Pharaohs, crocodiles and assassins, to lift his own death curse. Originally slated for September, Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King is now scheduled for Nov. 14, 2008.

Travel through ancient Egypt as young Assil, a bold young adventurer trying to save himself from a Mummy’s deadly curse.

Ever the party animal, Assil’s wild ways lead him to break into a pyramid to enjoy an all night party with his friends. However, on disturbing a peaceful, sleeping Mummy he was immediately punished with a lethal curse. Enjoy classic gameplay using the stylus to help Assil discover the remedy and break the curse within 24 hours to avoid his fate.

Feel the sand beneath your feet and the hot sun blazing down from above as your adventures begin in the mysterious land of ancient Egypt. Become immersed in the beautiful and vibrant Egyptian locations, travelling through bustling dusty cities, exotic bazaars and tropical dense undergrowth.

Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King features many colourful and humorous characters, including the lovable delinquent Assil; the Pharaoh, who would rather party than govern; his beautiful daughter Thara; the gossip loving Mummy, George; and Thor, the practical joker. Not all the characters are good natured though; beware of Seth, who enjoys a good ruckus, and Osiris, God of the Underworld.

Providing fun and excitement for players of all ages, Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King features many engaging puzzles that must be solved in order to progress. Enjoy and experience the vivid and enchanting surroundings on your adventure, but don’t forget the task in hand, Assil’s life must be saved before his time is up!

If you are brave enough to accompany Assil as he continues his quest for the Ankh, then look out for Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King, set to hit stores on Nov. 14, 2008.
