Let’s send all the existing cartridges of this game back to Hong Kong. I’m sure the former developers at AVE could use something to eat.


XD

This game begs the question. How can you blatantly rip off such a good game and conept like Tetris and wind up with something this bad?

Oh wait, Hydlide did the same thing by ripping of Legend of Zelda. Nevermind.

But Hydlide has that cool quasi-Indiana Jones music. Pyramid doesn't even have a pyramid!

To play devil's advocate, the screenshots show two pyramids and a sphinx in the background. I'm still not gonna try this game, though.

Technically though that does mean it doesn't have "a pyramid" - it has two.


''Yes, yes...but apart from all that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?''

+1 to randxian for the Hydlide reference...

...and yeah, the game's really not worth it. I think the best strategy is to sit around, make your "well" and wait for a big-triangle. I mean, the little triangles are

The big triangle is

(It looks better in courier.)

Oh that and if you tilt one piece wrong there's no way to get to the bottom. Lots of ways to demolish this game and Felix found a good one. I like his approach better than Deathspork's here and I think Deathspork's had some fun stuff.

Haha, I didn't even notice the pyramids in the background. Of course, they may just be rocks with a giant sphix carved out the middle. Someone should conduct an investigation.

Thanks for the compliment, ASchultz.
