Good

The second part of the adventures in ancient Egypt takes us to the city of the Sun Heliopolis, where as a young Priestess Tifet we need to find a drug for the patient's father and the rest of the inhabitants of the metropolis. An interesting scenario and realistic graphics and evocative sound, faithfully reflect the realities of Egyptian civilization dating back 3000 years. Original soundtrack combines the sounds of ancient with contemporary music composition.

Good but less-popular adventure game

Although Egypt II: The Heliopolis Prophecy is not among the most popular adventure game, it still can be recommended. It has a great atmosphere and good story, illustraded with pretty nice graphics. Even if they don't compare to the hand-painted beauties from Deadalus, they still look good and don't distract from the game. The game really invokes the feeling of ancient Egypt, and even comes with an encyclopaedia full of interesting facts about it. I think every fan of adventure games would enjoy it, even if the story becomes thinner toward the end (without going into any spoilers here). A special mention goes to the soundtrack which doesn't go too far and does great job building the atmosphere of Egypt of old.
