Has it really been 14 years since I played this game? Never thought I'd see Sphinx and the mummy again, so it was a wonderful surprise when I discovered the game here at Steam. All I can say is that despite its age, it still looks good and is as much fun as it was then. If you enjoy puzzles, like to think around a few corners and also want to have platforming and action elements, you can't do much wrong with this game. In addition, there's a great soundtrack, two lovely protagonists and (especially on the mummy's side) some of the weirdest gameplay ideas I've ever come across. However, I would recommend a controller, as the control is definitely designed for this. Since the devs are very active and take problems and suggestions of the players really seriously, this can change in the near future. They're working on it, as far as I know. The Devs' enthusiasm and devotion really makes me hope for a continuation. Or other games we've all seen in the Graveyard of Incompatibility. Thanks to THQ Nordic for this reunion with an old friend. :)
