Mummy Puzzle is a fast-paced puzzle game where players have to match three items to succeed. The main objective of the game is to restore the City of the Dead’s temples. While doing this, the player will discover hidden gold that must be collected within a specified time limit. When the target goal for gold is reached, the player becomes the Great Pharaoh.
The game is set in the land of pharaohs and mummies. The player is challenged to solve puzzles in order to collect treasures. Players go through easy levels first; the puzzles become more challenging as the game progresses. Each puzzle shows a grid with hieroglyphic symbols in different colors and shapes. Players must match three similar tiles vertically or horizontally by swapping two tiles. The matched tiles will be removed from the grid and replaced with new ones. All the spaces in the grid must be cleared of the hieroglyphs in order to advance to the next level.
The playing grid’s shape changes in every level, making the task of matching tiles more challenging. To help players along, the game provides power-ups that are able to zap tiles and help the player earn more points. Games can be saved, so players can continue playing right where they left off.
