This is a Match 3 game, but it's far more than a normal Match 3 game!

Have you ever dreaming yourself in an ancient tomb which is thousands of years ago in the most ancient Country in the world? If so, now you have a chance!

In this game, you'll play as an asistant who is following his renowned archeologist Dr. Edward into the unearthed palace of Emperor Qin Shi Huang under the Great Wall of the Qin Dynasty. You're on a mission to uncover the treasures hidden beneath lots of dangerous obstacles & traps in the underground palace before those treasure hunters steal them. To complete this mission you have to get the trust of the Guardians to summon the power of six Guardians and use them wisely to clear your way to the center of the palace. There lies the treasure of Emperor Qin!

The visual design is based on ancient Chinese shrine, splendid and gorgeous. The Guardians are designed according to the ancient myths and the well-designed Chinese characters will show up when you trigger a trap or fill up the Combo Bar. If you have any interest in Chinese Culture, just start from these characters! While sliding your fingers to remove the Tiles, The ink effect will show up to give you the feeling that you're drawing a stroke like an ancient Chinese calligrapher! Besides, all the palaces are also drawn by hands to achieve the best quality.

Instruction:

To play the game, just move the tiles with your fingers. You can remove the Tiles with same color by aligning them three or more in a row. Spirits were attached to some of the Tiles. So through removing such Tiles you will gain the Spirits. The stage is cleared if you collect all the required Spirits before time runs out. The Guardian will obtain energy when Tiles of its color are removed. You can summon the Guardian power whenever the energy is full.

Ancient Guardians have various abilities to use, such as reducing the number of Spirits required, removing all the obstacles, rearranging the whole dock, or even stopping the timer! However, with the Zodiac which acts like a skill tree, you can even use the Copper Coins collected during the adventure to develop more Skills besides the Guardians. Other than other match 3 games in which the skills are triggered automatically, in Tombe Treasure, you can use them when you feel suitable! Using different Skills and summoning Guardians at the right time will enable you to form a marvelous Combo! 50 or 100, let's see how many Combos you could make! The game runs fluently at a rather high pace, you won't find it hard to keep the Combos running on and have all those splendid effects on your screen.

-Delicate and splendid Chinese style visual and touching experience..
- 5 palaces, over 30 levels to challenge you!
- 6 Guardians with respective special functions and extraordinary splendid effects.
-10 different kinds of titles enhance the challenges and joys of the game.
- Zodiac system which can strengthen 12 different skills.
- When Combo Bar is full, the full screen Bomb PO effect will be triggered.

Looks good enough - TOFFTing this title!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Reminds me of Treasures of Montezuma. Will be interested to see if this changes up the usual Match 3 gameplay.

Me too. The only match 3 that has held my interest is Azkend.

I am wondering (hoping) this one might be on that level.

Only a few, sorry - haven't played only a few minutes yet.
The asian style of this game is very cool.
Seems to have depth, too. You can even learn kind of abilities.
