Take good-old Arcanoid, add some elements of magic, spice it up with a flair of Egypt and you'll end up with something like Egyptoid, a spectacular treasure hunting arcade.
An ancient papyrus tells you about lost temples and tombs that hide overwhelming riches and about a magic weapon; the Egyptoid. Using Egyptoid, you can trail the way and gather the treasures.
In the temples you can find some of the forgotten magic elements that together with the Egyptoid can activate antique spells. Note, however, that you'l be able to see all the secrets only when you collect all the keys of Anubis that will open the doors to the pharaoh treasures.
Egyptoid has a classic Arcanoid's mechanics. You use the paddle to bounce the ball and destroy the patterns of blocks. However the originally of the game is in the graphics and system of bonuses.
You'll travel through 8 spectacular worlds, rendered in 3D. This, along with the Egyptian visuals, will please your eye and add to the game's replayability.
Bonuses will also keep the game fresh all the way through 72 levels! You will discover 17 different types of bonuses, including those that speed up or speed down the paddle, give the player an extra life, extend the paddle or make it magnetic.
A choice of magic symbols like Anger of Atum or Flame of Ra will help you activate the magic spells and destroy a portion of block patterns. Additional treat in Egyptoid is the secret levels that open up when you collect 5 keys.
The game will surprise you with nice physics and accurate anti-aliasing that deliver smooth animations even when the ball is moving at low speeds.
