Can somebody PLEASE help me?? I have a lot of games that for a particular reason, I can't locate to play at the moment. The game I can't recall has nice graphics and begins in the desert of Egypt, with a female archeologist and her Jeep. She's stuck there with a local man at night and she has to get into a certain cave that has been excavated, when some others come to take over the site. I love the night scenes of Omega Stone, but this is definitely NOT that game. The woman seems to go back in time to different ancient Egyptian locations performing some kind of rituals. What is the name of this game? Maybe I'll be able to locate it if I know what I'm looking for. Thank you!

Could it be a casual game?

Definitely the one, MaG !!
I remember it well because the game wouldn't play properly on my "then" computer - crashing right after that intro scene every time I tried it - and I must have tried it at least 30 times !! scared

[Managed to play it OK on my next machine though snicker]

Not a casual game, but that cave was actually a large tent, I think,and there was a machine that she went back in time in there. She is threatened by one of the heavies and escapes by using the machine or whatever. Can't recall if I even played it on my old XP or not. I do have at least one of those 'Atlantis' games, maybe that was it. I hope so because it's been on my mind for a while. Thank you for your help!

Is it the one MaG linked to? That's the one I would think it was... When traveling back in time to Egypt, do you remember her "psychopomp?" He was her guide...

I knew immediately it was Atlantis 3, in my opinion it is the least interesting of the five in the series. However I too remember an interesting atmosphere in some garden, and I think a walk in some palace in the rain.

I need to play it again, maybe it is more interesting than I gave it credit for. It was just different from the first two, almost unrelated. And the first two are in my top ten list of the greatest adventure games.

If you played the Mac OSX or iPad versions of Atlantis 3, that might explain why you thought it was the "least interesting." The Mac and iPad versions removed most of the puzzles and made gameplay areas much smaller (fewer nodes to explore).

IMO Atlantis 4 (Evolution) was by far the worst of them, with "Halt Deviant!!!" and "game over" every few seconds.

Atlantis Evolution was the closest to the first two, so I did enjoy it more.

I played them all on the PC a long time ago, but yes I bought them all again recently on the Mac and iPad and will be playing them again when I get the time.

If a few puzzles are gone the better, I enjoy them for the atmosphere. But thanks for the info Jenny.

And I said "least interesting", which means it is still high up in my esteem, I love the whole series.

Do you think 5 nodes of exploration provide as much atmosphere as 20?
And it's not just the puzzles they removed from the remaining nodes, it's other interactive objects as well -- things that fleshed out the gameworld. So many objects that you were able to step up to and look at in the PC version -- in the OSX and iPad version they're just incorporated into the background 20 feet away.

Jenny, what is a node of exploration? I think I kind of see your point now.

I just need to play on my Mac, because the retina screen makes a world of difference.

Mmh... I did install Windows on my Mac via Boot Camp and Parallels, Windows never looked so good. I think you have convinced me to re-play the PC versions instead.

Any other series of games with that same issue? Any of the Microïds ones for example?

Dear, dear, I just bought them all again all over again...

I just got back and saw you got the game! I remember the creepy cadaver guy at some point explaining stuff. Thank you so much for helping me. Now, if only I could get into the closet where that game is stored...
