This turn-based game consists of 30 missions. You play Steven McCoy - dauntless adventurer, exploring the Egyptian pyramids in search of treasure. In any mission your objective is to find a key and unlock a hidden door. Or you can simply destroy all the enemies. Your opponents are guardians - reincarnations of ancient Egyptian gods.
Each level is divided into cells. At least once during your turn you can move from your current cell to an adjacent one, shoot or kick. Once a turn you can change your line-of-sight (for example, to investigate your flanks). Tap your character first in order to turn or shoot. To end your turn and permit the guardians to move, tap the "end turn" arrow in the upper-right corner of the screen. After the guardians have made their moves one-by-one, you can then move again.
An interesting feature of the game is the possibility of determining the location of the guardians, since the amulet gives you the ability to view the maze through a guardian's eyes. Tap the face of an interesting guardian positioned on the left or at the bottom of the screen in order to see his map.
Within each level you can find and acquire ammunition as well as a First Aid kit (to restore your health). Also you can find treasure-chests, which can come in very useful if you manage to complete the level.
After the mission you return to the camp of the French Foreign Legion. Here you automatically restore your health, and you can improve skills by spending some of your gold.
The game comes to an end when you complete the last level and defeat Anubis, but you can play again by increasing the level of difficulty. You may also change the level of difficulty before resuming a game (see "Options" in the Start Menu), but not during a mission.
Higher levels of difficulty require more complex strategies in order to win.
