Only a few more days in September. If you’re an Xbox Live Gold member you’re thrilled because it means it’s almost time for a new bundle of giveaways. As usual, the new October games will be distributed throughout the month.
One of the first offers – which will be available until the 15th – is Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. It’s an old game, but it’s definitely a great choice if you’re into third-person action-adventure games. Even still in 2020, it’s a great game with a lot of heart.
Players can travel the world using magical portals in hopes of putting an end to Set’s evil plans. As the Sphinx, you won’t have to fight the bad guys on your own thanks to your loyal companion, The Mummy. You can switch between the two depending on the situation.
For example, if you encounter an enemy and a fight is necessary, Sphinx is your man. It has an increasing number of skills that you will soon discover throughout the game’s story, which is inspired by ancient Egypt.
If, however, you are looking to solve puzzles or sneak past enemies in a unique way, then The Mummy is the character to use in those particular circumstances. The main objective of Sphinx and the mummy is to find the magic crowns of ancient Egypt.
If you don’t and Set addresses them first, it could disrupt reality as you know it. This is something you cannot afford and you will go to extraordinary lengths to be the savior the world needs.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy debuted in 2003 and was developed by Eurocom. Despite its age, the graphics and gameplay hold up quite well.
The worlds you will be able to explore are well detailed and vibrant, even for today’s standards. The fact that it has aged so well makes it an amazing addition to your collection, especially if you like to go back and play all time classics.
And if you haven’t had the chance to take in this hidden gem, get ready. You will have fun discovering the lore, world and interesting characters of this game. There are so many NPCs you will interact with as well as menacing villains that you will need to defeat before facing off against the Evil Set.
Additionally, this game is a suitable giveaway for Xbox Live Gold members as Halloween is just around the corner.
