Pyramids (3DS eShop)

Game Profile

Pyramids is a puzzle/platform game where an explorer tries to get out the pyramids with his loot.

The task will not be easy. There are many dangerous traps and monsters that will put your dexterity and ingenuity to the test. The player will have the use of TNT and a gun but his best friend will be his shovel which allows him to create and destruct bricks. These bricks will be used as stairs, bridges, protections…

The explorer will venture through 54 challenging 3D levels, divided in 6 worlds. At the end of each level, the player will obtain a star rating which will be used to unlock levels:

  • 1 star for finishing the level
  • 2 stars for finishing the level and stealing all the loots
  • 3 stars for finishing the level and stealing all the loots in a given time

The game will let the player use QR Code to unlock free new levels which are on the Pyramids web page.

  • Escape from 54 trapped levels!
  • Only your skills and logic will save you from the dangerous Pyramid rooms.

Hardly an "original 3DSware" when it oozes so much plagiarism.

It's a cheap Solomon's Key ripoff, only this time with damn ugly visuals, no charm to it whatsoever and a 3D effect that fails when you look at the background and there's two blocks of the same kind one next to the other (if you have access to the 3DS store, try watching the video and looking at the background).

Can't wait for more games from this company, including "Buzzle Pobble", "Metal Smug" and fan-favorite "Shawneek The Hog"!

Hopefully this is even better than Solomon's Key :-) (the latter was designed to suck money into a machine)

Pretty good title.
I have some complaints though;
Controls are not that responsive (annoying at times)
Menu and restart level should be faster, it gets tiresome

I bought this, and deeply regret it. The controls are terrible and unresponsive when you need them to be. Gameplay looks like it could be cooked up by anyone using gamemaker in about 10 minutes. Graphics are average at best and the 3D effect adds nothing to the game experience; the blocks arent even 3D - its just a background. I'd score it a 4/10. A flawed title that may be enjoyed by some but is ultimately not that good as history will show once 3DSWare picks up.

tovare.. and this game was designed to suck money off our debit cards ;/ I'll probably still get it tho just to support 3ds e-shop titles.
