> POWER PYRAMIDS by Quicksilva


• Completed by Neil Collins & Vinny Mainolfi
• Reviewed by Neil Collins

Power Pyramids is a puzzle game by Quicksilva. The storyline is a bizarre tale about the delivery of and construction of pyramids throughout the galaxy by the intellectually advanced Egyptians. It all boils down to a simple concept: guide a robotic sphere around each of the pyramids and activate its power by touching the various points scattered within it's maze of corridors. You have to control various switches and ramps in order to navigate the rooms and avoid items that cause you harm.

Graphically it is quite poor, with clumsy controls and mind numbingly boring game play. There's very little action or excitement throughout the whole game, so I was expecting the end to be just as boring - if there was one at all...


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:

  • Neil: I worked my way through all the pyramids while saving my progress as I completed each one.

  • Vinny: I have since created a crazy hack for this game that has 31 extra in-game features; one of them being the game ending. You can download the crazy hack from the link area above.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have activated the final pyramid by hitting the last switch, the game is beaten. The end screen is very similar to the title screen but the text below the logo is different. The text reads 'CONGRATULATIONS. YOU HAVE COMMISSIONED ALL PYRAMIDS. THE DOCKTET IS NOW SIGNED AND ALL PYRAMIDS ARE OPERATIONAL'. A little tune plays in the background and pressing the fire button restarts the game.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: I'm glad there was an end message, but that's all there is. Just another boring ending to a boring puzzle game. 1.5/10.

  • Vinny: I enjoyed hacking this game, but I wasn't impressed by the ending. 1.5/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: When I saw a preview shot of this game I thought it sounded interesting. But the poor reviews definitely put me off, and a brief play years later confirmed how poor it was.

    Little surprise then the ending is so uninspired.

FINAL SAY: It's what you would expect from this kind of game.

G.E. RATING: 1.5 / 10
