'Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King' (NDS) - 14 New Screens

Xider Games' Ankh is a point and 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.

If you enjoyed the previous Ankh titles then prepare yourself for more laugh-a-minute humour as you join Assil, the courageous young adventurer in a pocket sized journey through the dusty streets of Cairo.

Cairo... the ancient city of thousand shapes, colors and smells. And of Pharaohs, crocodiles and assassins. It won't be easy for Assil to get an audience at the palace to get rid of his death curse. Even worse, the number of his foes is growing faster than his curse takes posession of him. And that's already quite fast. Only a keen mind can save Assil from certain death: You!

During his quest, Assil meets a whole bunch of weird people, from happy slaves to frightened crocodiles and finally Osiris himself, the god of the underworld.

Based on the original Ankh from Artex Software (1998), Ankh will be fateful port of ts PC countpart although restricted in specifications such as limited voiceovers, and graphics, but the point & click adventure aspect will remain identical.

If you are brave enough to accompany Assil as he continues his quest for the Ankh, then look out for Ankh DS, set to hit stores in Q4 2007.
