Pros: Multiple gameplay variations. Cinematic presentation. Expert blend of balance, challenge and execution. Hundreds of levels. Tons of extras and upgrades. Cons: Curving pathways sometimes make spotting matches tricky. Some animations can't be skipped.
I cannot honestly recommend it as a game that I would buy as a player, but as a reviewer looking at it on an objective level against our set criteria, it is extremely difficult to fault.

How many ways can you do a match-three game? Apparently more than I thought, and Saqqarah packs them all in to one game. This game features the most variety of any matching game I can remember, with seven distinct versions of the classic mechanic to choose from. The 504 puzzles aren't simply repeats of the previous level with a slightly more difficult goal: they are genuinely different. The layouts are also varied, and the objective of matching matches all across the board is more advanced than simply clearing the level of getting a minimum score. The presentation is top-notch, thanks to memorable sound and pleasing graphics. This, my friends, is how you do a match-three puzzle game. If you have any interest in the genre, then Ancient Quest of Saqqarah should be at the top of your list.
If you only like intense action games where limbs fly off then Ancient Quest of Saqqarah is not for you. If, however, you're into puzzle games like Bejeweled, you will most likely enjoy this game. Saqqarah might not be the game you play for hours on end, but it works great for little breaks in between work (or during work). The biggest downside to this game is the price. While this game has a lot of modes and levels, 20 smackers is pretty expensive for what is essentially a souped-up Bejeweled with more modes. But all in all, if you enjoy games of this nature, then Ancient Quest of Saqqarah will offer you a moderately good time.
