Description

The Rise of Atlantis, the sequel to Atlantis Quest, is a match-3 game, where you're playing an explorer during the Antiquity, chosen by the Gods for restoring the glory of Atlantis. You have to reunite 7 artifacts from 7 different civilizations and put them into the Altar of Poseïdon. You'll visit Rome, Troy, Carthage, the Egypt, the Greece, Babylon or the Phoenicians.

Your goal in each quest is to reunite the fragments of the artifact concerned. You have to bring them at the bottom of the board by swapping tiles before the time's running out. For each chain of 4 or more tiles, you're charging the Sun-Power bonus that destroys them randomly once activated. You can also collect other bonuses: the Swapping (swap two tiles of your choice), the Lightning (destroy all the tiles of the same pattern of your choice), the Hourglass (add time) or the Bomb (destroy a limited area of tiles).

When you've finished your journey, or circuit around ancient Mediterranean civilizations, a screensaver is available as a reward, however the game does not stop there - the player can continue the game making further journeys if they wish. On journeys two and upwards the player faces the same timed challenges, redeeming the same artifact fragments etc. There are some differences though, for example on the second journey a new tile, debris, is introduced. This cannot be matched to any tile and cannot be swapped with an artifact fragment
