The Curse of RA is a puzzle game where the player (Scarab) has to escape a pyramid by solving the riddles. The player needs to remove all stones on a board by finding a counterpart. Only two stones with the same symbol can be removed at a time and they have to be on a straight line, horizontally or vertically. The game starts with Scarab on an ankh and that item has to be returned upon completion. Moving a stone is done by sitting on one and moving it towards the counterpart. Not all stones can be moved however and there are teleporters, obstructions and diversions to make it more difficult. There are also traps and for instance ice that forces Scarab to move in a single direction. When the stones are aligned, pressing fire matches them and they disappear.
The game can be played in a Logic or in an Arcade mode. Logic mode offers 100 levels with no time limit. Special stones can make the player's life easier or harder. In Arcade mode the player has to complete a level within a certain amount on time. Special coins can be used to buy extras after each level, such as ability to fly for 30 seconds, more time, extra lives and others. Levels are generated at random. The Arcade mode has a high score table. Demo mode shows the usage of all the different stones found in the game. This is a sort of non-playable tutorial. The game also provides a level editor.
Yet another exquisite puzzle-game from 1990. Nice background story: in ancient eqypt you forgot to do your religious duty towards Sun-God Ra - as a punishment you are turned into a bug (not a spider like stated in the attached doc). Your only chance to become human again is to find your way out of the 100 levels of a pyramid. To advance into the next level you got to solve one puzzle per level - you have to make all the pieces vanish. They only do this if they are either horizontal or vertically on one line. This starts easy, but in the higher levels you won't be able to move all of the pieces around. And some other mean things will await you there too. A good idea and every puzzle-fan will love it. You can also play this in Arcade-mode which means time-limits and some other things. Really worth a try this game.
The mighty Egyptian god Ra has transformed you into a Scarabeus and then put you into the depths of a pyramid for 1000 years. The only chance Ra left you to get back to human form and out of your prison is by solving the riddle of the pyramid. But that's a very dangerous task...
Ra is a nice puzzle/logic game by Rainbow Arts with an ancient Egyptian theme. The game plays like Chinese game of Mahjongg, crossed with Sokoban and a dash of Rainbow Arts' own Logical for good measure. At the most basic level, it's another clear-the-field-by-matching-same-tiles kind of game, although each level is cleverly designed (with missing gaps to make moving pieces harder), and pieces are cleverly placed. Fun if you like brain-teasing games in this mold. As an added bonus, the the game includes a level editor and a so-called "arcade" game mode in addition to the logic one to appeal to fans of quick-decision games.
