About

The omens of the Battle of the Gods have been many, signaling the impending fight for supremacy over all other gods of Egypt. And of course, Assil will be caught in the middle of it all again. Together with his girlfriend Thara, he will have to prevent the sinister Seth from winning the battle and subjecting Egypt to his regime of terror. With the typical Ankh humour, numerous bizarre characters and gags by the wagonload, Ankh - Battle Of The Gods is again a candidate for the adventure gaming throne.

Battle Of The Gods feature several new locations, including Luxor, the gambling capital of ancient Egypt. And an unexpected trip takes Assil to a far-away, exotic location, where he will have to deal with the entirely unfamiliar conventions of its native people. The new Ankh features even more detailed character models and smoother animations.

Ankh 3: Battle of the Gods reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
The Game is medium sumptuous. The Game is the third Part of the Series about the Hero Assil in ancient Egypt. Sequels do not always manage to maintain the Height of the previous Titles and so we also fare with Ankh 3. Assil and Thara are now a harmonious Couple, snappy Sideshow are passé. Only the Ankh, the secret Hero of this Game, maintains the Flag of evil humour. There are Moments when I could really smile or laugh, but it was rare. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917891130 The Game starts tiresomely boring. It wasn't until the 3rd Level (out of a total of 8) that we really started. The Gods turn out to be a bored Group of Snobs residing in a Kind Of luxury Hotel. Far too little is made of this Idea, though. The Story is correspondingly flat, despite the bombastic Title. After All, however, an ancient Egyptian Myth is interpreted anew and spauntingly. The Battle of the Gods, however, basically proves to be a Contest between the Ankh and Seth, which can then be ended surprisingly quickly after initial Challenges. We meet almost all Acquaintances from Ankh 2 again, which was perhaps witty meant but not very funny. I still liked the Figure of the Mummy the Most. Typical of a Point & Click, you have to collect Objects, combine them and put them in the right Place. Some Combinations and Uses were somewhat or rather illogical And deviant. There were almost no other Types of Puzzles. Sometimes you had to elicit certain Things from the Interlocutors by asking the right questions (they were good) or giving the right Answers (1 Time and that was bad). But other than that, I didn't notice any Puzzles, no Mini-games or anything like that. On some Occasion, I felt like something had been planned (because you collect two Recipes) that you then omitted. Even the Puzzle (already known from Ankh 2), which is already known from Ankh 2), persuade x people to believe in Assil/Ankh, has been so simplified that it is sad. I found (by the Idea) the Puzzle with the Escher-like maze, even if it was then relatively easy to solve. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917892053 The Ability to switch between Assil and Thara at the Beginning of the Game was actually only used in Levels 1 and 2 And only really needed once! I find That more disappointing than if they hadn't offered the Opportunity at all. So overall, the Game offers completely average Puzzle Foods. Some Objects are hard to find, but there is a Button that can be used to view interactive Objects. At most, Some outlandish Solutions can sometimes make you resort to a Solution. The Playing Time will then be barely more than 8 Hours. The Graphics are similar to those of the Show's Predecessors, with the typical comic style. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917891461 I knew Ankh 1 and 2 with German Synchornisation, which seemed very good to me. In this Respect, I found the English Setting of Ankh 3 somewhat disappointing. The Operation of the Game is genetic, but each Object must be retrieved from the inventory shown at the top left after each Attempt, which makes trial and error passages a bit cumbersome. Conversations and Cutscenes can be skipped. I had no Trouble playing the Game on Windows 10. Pro & Contra: + Some witty characters, conversations, Situations + Some reasonable puzzle/Solutions o Uninspired story-Some outlandish and illogical Solutions to Puzzles-Too little depth in terms of Puzzle and Story rating: 06/10 The Game didn't Matter Thrilled, but it doesn't stand badly either. It's like an Echo Of good Predecessors Ankh 1 and 2. For Friends of the Series maybe Mandatory, for others a Can.
