This puzzle game features pretty good graphics and many different puzzling challenges.
Another uninspired, seen-it-before puzzle game that won’t hold gamers’ attention.

Bricks of Egypt is offered in a free trial version, where players can test their puzzle skills and get a glimpse of Egypt for 30 free minutes. Two minutes of play is enough to give gamers a taste of this one, so even though the trial period sounds short it’s more than enough of Egypt.

With decent enough graphics and pretty cheesy sound effects, even that wouldn’t be too bad if the game play itself wasn’t so boring. An uninspired puzzle game at best, despite all the many, many levels of Bricks of Egypt it’s pretty much the same thing over and over...and over.

You must complete the first level to go on to the next, and so on. You start out in the first level with nothing but your skill, your drive…and a small, bouncing ball. Tennis-like, your goal is to send that ball up into a row full of bricks, which hide jewels and other special treats. Catch the ball before it bounces off the bottom of the screen!

You get a lot of chances to lose your ball, however, and it isn’t hard at all to advance to the next level. What is hard is staying awake and keeping your attention focused on the game – which is based on a concept that’s practically ancient by today’s technology standards.

Bricks of Egypt offers nothing new or even interesting. Unless you’re a puzzle-lover, you may not want to pay the asking price. Definitely give the free demo a try before you buy.


This puzzle game is a real brick, and you can take that literally. A game probably better suited to kids, Bricks only appeals to hardcore puzzle fans.
