Details and specifications on: Riddle of the Sphinx, £29.99. An epic interactive CD-Rom adventure game into Ancient Egypt's most enigmatic monuments: the Sphinx and Great Pyramid. But the adventure doesn't stop there...
Violent sand storms have once again covered most of the Sphinx and Great Pyramids. After years of digging, noted archaeologist Sir Gil Blythe Geoffreys uncovers a secret chamber overlooked for centuries. Geoffreys' first and only trip reveals an ancient, brittle papyrus scroll. After rough translation, he realizes he's found the 'Rosetta Stone' of the Sphinx.
Finally, Gil thought, the riddle of the Sphinx... solved!
Sealed with a thick resin, the scroll bears an indiscernible hieroglyph. Unfortunately, after breaking the scroll's seal and deciphering it's mysterious contents, Geoffreys realizes he's unleashed an ancient curse; shrouding those who fail to heed its warning in certain death. Realizing he is doomed, Geoffreys sends for you, his closest friend and colleague.
Upon your arrival to the Giza plateau, you come to realize the curse of which Gil wrote is indeed real and has taken his life.
Now, with the help of Gil's carefully hidden notes and translation of the scroll, it's up to you to solve the Riddle. However... the scroll has dubiously disappeared.
Sir Geoffreys ever-greedy colleagues surmised that he discovered a profitable find, and, not trusting one another, they individually rifled through Gil's tent, searching in vain for the scroll. What has happened to the tattered scroll?
With no scroll, no translation and no clue, each agrees to "help" the other locate Gil's newly discovered secret chamber. Slowly, they disappear into the Great Pyramid.
Your first responsibility will be to locate the missing scroll. Then, using the tattered scroll with Gil's translation, you'll be on the way to solving the Riddle of the Sphinx™!
Match wits with disingenuous archaeologists, survive ingenious deathtraps, and decode ancient puzzles while confronted with tremendous feats of logic designed to thwart 2,500 year old tomb robbers.
Vigilant exploration through secret chambers, hidden tombs, and eerie labyrinths will help to solve this ancient riddle, entombed for centuries by the ancient Egyptians!

Ever wanted to walk through the Great Pyramid and explore its chambers unencumbered?
The Great Pyramid of Cheops was modeled to scale and rendered using the same stone material... stone by stone.
The features, imperfections, and architecture have been replicated for total immersion. (The only recognizable elements we intentionally omitted are the graffiti currently defacing the Great Pyramid and most other monuments.)
Intrigued by the Great Sphinx of the Giza plateau? If not, you will be.
The Sphinx, as with Cheops, is a replica of the large, enigmatic statue (as close as we could modestly come to recreating such an awesome work of art) .
In the game, unlike reality, you're able to walk in, around, under, and over the Sphinx at your leisure. In fact, the enclosure in which the Sphinx sits has also been recreated using real restoration photos.
And as a bonus, you can walk into the body of the Sphinx... a cavity that Gil (in the game) discovered. In truth., there is at least one "tunnel" or "cavity" in the Sphinx. Others are rumored to exist but none have been proven. Riddle of the Sphinx™ is your key to finding the speculated cham... oops, almost gave it away.
Excited by the possibility of discovering secret chambers? Examining hidden tombs? Unearthing sacred artifacts? Exploring lost temples?
So are a lot of others. Notably archaeologists, egyptologists, scientists, geophysicists and famous psychics... some of whom have found convincing evidence or proposed exotic theories of hitherto undiscovered chambers, tunnels, passageways, doors, tombs, labyrinths, and the Hall of Records.
Some of the mysterious environments you explore are based on new discoveries and ancient myths & legends... the best of both worlds!
Other environments are pure fantasy, but retain the look and feel of ancient Egypt. And all environments contain artifacts (see knife above) found by Howard Carter during his colossal discovery of King Tut's tomb.
