The world is in danger from an unknown phenomenon and only the archeologist Allie and the explorer-for-hire Redd can save us. To keep Redd alive you’ll need to outmaneuver danger, discover new abilities, and of course… blow things up! Navigate through huge dungeons avoiding sinister traps, time based puzzles, and massive stone creatures to try and unlock the mystery of the Royal Amulet of Konira.

You play as Redd, an explorer for hire, who is searching the dungeons of the lost temple for the Royal Amulet of Konira. This is very much an exploration type game like Shadow Complex, in which you will be back-tracking to areas you could not reach when you first discovered them.

The game played quite well, and the sound and voice-overs for the characters were really well done. My only complaint is the darkness of the graphics, but I am positive that was a deliberate design decision to enhance the ambience of exploring an underground temple. There was even a nod in the opening sequence to a very popular archaeologist movie franchise.

This is a very well done game and, for only 240 MSP, it will net you tons of exploration-filled hours.

This concludes our coverage of the Summer Uprising titles. If you have an Indie Games title you feel is worthy of a spotlight of its own, as always, you can submit them directly via PM to mancide.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
