Ancient Tomb Adventure

Has anyone played Ancient Tomb Adventure (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=303967111&mt=8)? Is this a real adventure game, something like Dungeon Master or more like Silent Hill The Escape?

It looks interesting but that one review with one star kind of makes me hesitate. I guess I will wait for more reviews before I decide.

It has nothing to do with games like SilentHill.
It is more like a 'old school' adventure. You have to solve puzzles, find hidden paths, etc. and it is not easy..

Welcome Wolfgang.

This looks like an interesting game. Would be nice to see a video demo of the game play.

Welcome to the forums Wolfgang!

Just a heads up for you - I went to the Australian iTunes store to look at your games description and found that the description was in a foreign language (at least foreign for me). English is the national language here in Australia.

You might want to check and then change the language settings for the games description for the Australian iTunes store listing.

Welcome Wolfgang,

and +1 to Snow_Mani's "heads up", your game description is in German on the Dutch iTunes store as well. In my experience Dutch folk (though as a rule exceptional polyglots) are more familiar and comfortable with English...

I love the idea of this game and just bought it. Unfortunately, I did not check to see if it was compatible with my first generation iPod Touch. It seems that it is ONLY compatible with the iPhone. This doesn't make any sense... I cannot see any reason why this should be so.

Can you please fix this? PLEASE!

Thanks a lot for the hint with the wrong localisation in international AppStores.
I have now uploaded the correct texts (in english) for international AppStores.

Hi tangerine,
the game will be tested on a iPod Touch in the next days.
If the test is ok, (i expect that) the game will also be released for iPod Touch
