“Curse of the Lost Tomb” was developed by VPI.Net’s in-house games group VPI Games. Here is the storyline:

A great civilization that once thrived deep in the heart of Egypt has recently been discovered. However, upon entering the sacred tomb a 3,000 year old curse was awakened. The desert sands melted into quicksand, souls of the dead were released, and a vortex opened shifting the tomb into an impenetrable maze of clever traps, and fire-triggered doorways. Now you have the opportunity to transport your marble into the Lost Tomb and collect the Pharaoh's great treasure that has been spread throughout the ruins in small clay jars. But be careful. Cursed mummy's, swinging hammers and a topsy-turvy world of narrow pathways, skill-based challenges and deep quicksand will stand in your way. Can you break the curse? To play simply tilt your iPhone or iPod Touch to navigate through each of the levels, collecting coins and dodging obstacles as you race for the fastest time.
