Egypt and its mysteries are coming to iPhone and iPod Touch

Montreuil, August 26, 2010. After the successful adaptations of“Dracula: The Path of the Dragon”, Anuman?Interactive adapts a new game title from the Micro?ds catalog for iPhone and iPod Touch.?True to its guiding line, Anuman Interactive continues to adapt titles from the?Micro?ds brand for new media devices available to wide audiences, such as the?iPhone and iPod Touch.

For this purpose, Anuman Interactive and Tetraedge present the first part of?“Egypt: The Prophecy”, an adaptation reworked entirely for the iPhone and its?features. This Point&Click incorporates all the ingredients required for a great?adventure game (mysteries, magical landscapes, riddles…) and whisks the?reader away into the land of the pharaohs, against magnificent backdrops and?cinematics.

In“Egypt: The Prophecy– Part 1”, the player takes on the role of Maia, a young?magician ordered by Ramses II to look into strange accidents that occurred at?the site of the Great Obelisk, a construction for the glory of the god Amon Ra. In?order to successfully complete her mission, she must fight against evil spells and?magic charms and resolve numerous riddles.

At the gameplay level, the player possesses 360-degree vision that can be?navigated in the first person. And so, the player moves around in 3D?environments thanks to several ways to“touch” and can look around by simply?sliding a finger across the screen.

St?phane Longeard, Anuman Interactive’s CEO, explains:“With‘Egypt’ we are continuing along the path that?we have set out on; that is, to adapt Micro?ds titles for new electronic devices– and all this on an international?level. Looking at the quality of the script for’Egypt‘ and the adaptation created, we are hoping that this title will?find its audience on the iPhone and iPod Touch, just as‘Dracula’ did before it.”

It should be noted that the story of“Egypt: The Prophecy” has been split into 3chapters to take into account

the lavishness of the game and its incorporated platforms.

The first release is available in French, English and German (text and voice). An update will be made available?very shortly and will include Spanish and Italian.

“Egypt: The Prophecy– Part 1” and“Egypt: The Prophecy– Part 2” are currently available from the App Store?under the“Games” category, since August 10, 2010.
