Big Fish Games Launches Ancient Quest of Saqqarah
Seattle, WA, June 26, 2008 --( Big Fish Games™, the world’s leading online destination for casual entertainment, announced today the release of Ancient Quest of Saqqarah, a new casual game available exclusively from Big Fish Games.

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah is a Puzzle game with motion picture quality in story, sound, and script adding a new level of superiority to classic Match 3 play.

In the game, players travel back to Saqqarah, an ancient Egyptian dwelling, where an eclipse transpires over a mystic pyramid every thousand years. Below the pyramid’s sands, a magical underground oasis is filled with puzzles, treasures, and legends. Players are tasked with fulfilling an old Egyptian prophecy to stop the evil god Seth from breaking out of his arcane tomb prison. In order to succeed, players must master seven distinct types of puzzles along with mini-games spread over 500 hand-crafted levels.

Players begin in the temple of Isis, swapping neighboring tokens by clicking on three or more items of the same kind. Throughout several stages, the objective is to light the entire board by making combos over the dark areas. Ancient Quest Saqqarah is an innovative Match 3 game in the way it lets players make matches vertically and horizontally in one simultaneous move adding an entirely new experience.

After five strong matches, an explosive fireball is hurled into the board by Khufu, the summoned monkey, for a “Mega Sweep.” Players also experience bonus points with the Pharaoh’s Combo and Desert Combo. When earned, a Shuffle option is available to reconfigure the board for additional matches. Unparalleled high-definition graphics along with motion picture-quality sound create a highly-immersive Puzzle experience.
