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...
WAS IT COMPLETED?:
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.
- 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
Little surprise then the ending is so uninspired.
SAY: It's what you would expect from this kind of
to view more endings.
