If you thought Isis was challenging wait until you try cracking its enigmatic sequel. NKryptor is a fist-bitingly hard, Egyptian-themed head-scratcher that's set to flummox puzzle fans across the globe.
Just like Isis, great prizes await the special few who reveal NKryptor's strange secrets. And we're not talking about tacky old treasure; we're talking about modern day swag such as iPods, LCD TVs and more. Ra!
NKryptor looks like a gorgeously engineered aluminium case. And it is. But this fiendish little hand-crafted container is also part one of the NKryptor challenge. With no instructions or guidance your job is to open this seemingly impenetrable box and gain access to the PC game that lies within. The only clue is an engraved pharaoh whose eyes flash when you're close to solving the puzzle.
CD ROM game
The plot thickens once you've opened the case as you'll find a CD Rom containing a PC game. This ridiculously addictive brain mangler is like a cross between Tetris and one of those sliding tile puzzles. The idea is to rearrange the tiles to get matching symbols in rows or columns. Sounds pretty straightforward but the levels get increasingly difficult as more symbols appear and more lines are required.
