Curse of the Lost Tomb

A great civilization that once thrived deep in the heart of Egypt has recently been discovered. However, upon entering the sacred tomb a 3,000 year old curse was awakened. The desert sands melted into quicksand, souls of the dead were released, and a vortex opened shifting the tomb into an impenetrable maze of clever traps, and fire-triggered doorways.

Now you have the opportunity to transport your marble into the Lost Tomb and collect the Pharaoh's great treasure that has been spread throughout the ruins in small clay jars. But be careful. Cursed mummy's, swinging hammers and a topsy-turvy world of narrow pathways, skill-based challenges and deep quicksand will stand in your way. Can you break the curse?

Enjoy hours of fun racing your marble through 20 levels, collecting achievements and competing with other players around the world to climb to the top of the leaderboards!

To play simply tilt your iPhone or iPod Touch to navigate through each of the levels, collecting coins and dodging obstacles as you race for the fastest time.

Features include:

3D levels with amazing graphics
Accelerometer based controls
Leaderboards for each level to compare your scores with the rest of the world
Achievement system unlocks special features
20 playable levels
5 different playable marbles
Great soundtrack
Checkpoints save your progress as you play
Controls can be calibrated to fit your exact control-style

I don't know if people are interested in this sort of thing, but I always enjoy seeing behind-the-scenes shots of other games so I thought I would share.

This is an in-editor shot of two of the levels in Curse of the Lost Tomb.

That helps seal the deal, those images make me believe the levels are fairly intricate and sizeable; plenty o 'sploring to be had. Thanks.

The game is actually only $.99 - at least it shows up as that for me

Those level editing screens are tempting too...I might have to pick this up...hmmm...

EDIT: the only thing holding me back, is the fact that there's only 20 levels...any chance more will be added in the future?
