Now, every hero needs a comic relief sidekick, so this where the Mummy comes in. Before he was cursed the Mummy was, Tutankhamen, a prince of the kingdom of Luxor who was about to celebrate his birthday, instead he stumbled upon an evil plan by his older brother who was looking to take the young prince out of the picture. Just as Tut was trying to get away, he was found and turned into a lifeless mummy, but right before the ceremony was completed, fate steps in and Sphinx puts an end to the ceremony. And that my friends, is how Sphinx meets the Mummy and now its up to this newly formed duo to rid their world of the evil that is threaten to destroy it.
As Sphinx you start out like in most games pretty weak, but as you explore and get further into the game you earn more skills and weapons. For instance, one of the skills you learn is the ability to catch monsters and if you catch the right monster they will help you out on some puzzle you might run across, by burning down fences or blowing up huge boulders. You will also pick a blow gun, but this is not your ordinary blow gun, its a blow gun thats James Bond himself would be proud to have. This blow dart can shoot all kinds of different darts. First theres your regular darts that help you shoot targets that might be out of Sphinxs reach. Next are acid darts that melt chains that might be locking a door that you need to get through. Then there are ice darts, to freeze some enemies in a block of ice to then be picked up to help you reach higher ground. So even with all that in Sphinxs bag of tricks he still cant complete his task at hand, he still has to rely on his partner, the Mummy
As the Mummy, the gameplay is quite different. The mummy has no fighting abilities; instead he relies on stealth and puzzle solving. Since all mummies are usually dead, you really cant hurt them. So that gives you the upper hand in solving some of the puzzles that this game throws out you. To get through some of the puzzles you might have to set the mummys wrappings on fire to burn wooden cages or barriers that are blocking your way. While other obstacles will have you getting squished flat as a pancake to fit through some tight places, getting electrocuted to carry a charge to machines that be needed to turned on or getting cut up in pieces to hit multiple switches at one time. By doing all these things to the poor mummy, you are in for some well laid out puzzles, which will keep even the best puzzle gamers feeling challenged.
