alabama smith: escape from pompeii

This game was WAY too SHORT for $6.99

Great game, with one major catch
December 10, 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed Escape from Pompeii. It was moderately challenging, with a great deal of variety, from hidden objects that you actually use within the scene, to finding the difference between two similar scenes, to logic puzzles. The soundtrack didn't get on my nerves - a fairly rare occurrence with most casual games for me. This game warrants a solid 4, if not 5 stars. So why only 3? Two reasons, actually. One, from what I can tell, this game leaves on a cliffhanger that never really gets explained in the sequel, though this detail I could have lived with. The real issue for me was my saved game. It was non-existent. There wasn't any way to save manually, and upon further "research" through the forum, I discovered my problem: I'm running Windows 7. It would seem that anything more recent than Windows XP will not hold the saved game. There doesn't seem to be a fix for this, at least not one I could find; hence, the 3 star rating. I got around this by simply minimizing the game whenever I needed a break, and just re-maximizing the window when I was ready to play again, but it would've been nice to be able to actually close out the game. That being said, I'd highly recommend taking this one for a spin, particularly if you don't mind sitting all the way through a game (this one's a perfect length - you probably won't beat it in an hour or even two, particularly if you are solving puzzles on your own and watching the cutscenes, but it won't take weeks of playing for hours and hours straight either), or if you are running XP or earlier.

I played this on the iPhone and didn't like it at all. The story line was weak (with an obvious rip-off of Indiana Jones), it was way too short, and was not at all challenging. I finished the whole thing in less than 2 hours, and I kept waiting for it to improve. It never did.

Based on complete game. This is a fairly easy game and would be very short for an experienced hogger. I would recommend it for a beginner, which I was when I bought and played it the first time. It would be a bit more challenging for an inexperienced hogger (but they won't be tearing their hair out). Storyline: Not the greatest. Gameplay is straightforward. Specific tasks are shown In the lower right corner and it is easiest to do the tasks in order. Puzzles and mini-games are varied and relatively easy; graphics are good. Hint system recharges very quickly. Text labels items you scroll over. The biggest ?challenge? in gameplay is the last chapter when you must alternate present day with olden days. The scene is the same, but adjusted for time. You will do actions in either time period which will directly have an effect on the other. Ending: satisfactory.

O.K. Hidden Object Game

This game was very annoying due to the fact that if you stopped for awhile and restarted the game later, you had to start at the very beginning every time.

This is a great game

I enjoyed this game a lot and one of the things that I really liked was that after each cituation that you got him threw there was a mini game to play that was fun and interesting. I like to beleave that I really do learn something from each of the games I play, I am not a traveler so this site and the variety of games like this one allows us to travel threw the games adventures. I absoutely recommend this game its got a lof of interesting and adventurous cituations that let you go into a fantacy and have a blast.The grafics are good some times not so good but its not terrable, there is some really interesting things to see from egyptian times and other times.

Time Travel
February 20, 2014

I actually thought this game was way more interesting than the last Alabama. You are the best student of archaeology at the University of Yale and the Dean sends you to the University of Naples for the summer. Your quest is to find an amulet that was believed to be used for time travel but was last seen before the volcanic eruption in Pompeii. It is also rumored that a secret society was in charge of protecting the amulet, this society just happens to be in a hidden room at the University of Naples! There are inventory items to find and use to progress throughout the game and several mini games such as spot the difference. I did like this game better because of the subject, but I'm still not crazy about either game.
