Awful game. I have been playing this for hours, every day since I dwnlded it. Don't get my housework done! Get shoulder pain.....
Don't know why ppl are complaining that it does not work. I have it on my PC (Windows XP) and my sister on her PC (Windows 7). No probs whatsoever. And yes, patience is a virtue when waiting for the lines to stop dropping. And also, that 'bomb' thing (I've played it 3 x now from start) is not to be avoided (is it?). Anyone get past level 6/10 (Carthage)??


............Moderator Comment...............

got to agree with you on the complaints. Most match three games do the same. You just can't please some people. I thankfully have a working version of this that I purchased several years ago when it was first released. Also for those who are having problems you can download the MpPlayCity version which does work. (not that you need too :) )

I( completed the game when I first purchased it, but haven't bothered to do it again; simply too many other good games to play.

..........Moderator Comment............


It didn't for me neither; though you may find the MyPlayCity version will work. there's nothing wrong with the MPC version, just make sure you uncheck any check boxes during the installation wizard. When closing a MPC game down it will open your browser, but it's totally innocuous (nothing to worry about - you just close the browser when it's opened up)

Thank you for the game. Seems to be not as advanced as The Rise of Atlantis, but it is fun to play. It was playing, then abruptly stopped in the third level. Haven't tried it again since then.

Just got around to trying this game; installed and running fine on my ancient laptop. Nice game for a break from the car battle and shooter games I usually play. Being able to store power ups is a plus in my book.

Atlantis resource center is an unpacker and needs to be allowed to complete. If your installed game folder is not 92mb, then the unpacker failed (possibly due to insufficient rights). Install as admin, use a different directory that doesn't belong to the OS, and try again.




For people that had a weird screen flashing/switching problem, this means your wide-screen display had trouble adjusting to the full screen mode use by this 4:3 game. Update your graphics drivers, change desktop to a 4:3 resolution first (e.g. 800x600), then try the game again.

Overall, this is a very good game. I love these type of games, since you can casually play them and not spend too much time. The only thing I didn't like in this one was the inability to make moves while chain reactions are happening. You have to wait until all the chains are finished before moving a new piece, which can really make a big difference in the amount of time you have to beat the board, particularly if you get large chains often (not to mention, I tend to be a rather impatient gamer... XD). Also, this does seem to be a more difficult match 3 game. I love it. Albeit it, that evil piece (I think it was called that or at least something similar) really makes things difficult. It was in the worst spot possible, taking up one of the bottom spaces! And of course, I hit it... It actually sent me back to the start of Egypt. You have to be more cautious with your moves in this one. It makes things more challenging which could very well be a good thing! Overall, it's a rather fun way to pass time! Thanks Playrix and GGOTD!

the 2 or 3 seconds it took to wait for incidental matches to clear the board before moving again seemed like forever and just got too annoying so I uninstalled

Thank you, I like this game. Got it at its previous giveaway. A bit too hard, could not complete the very last two levels. However my friend's father completed it successfully. A very nice match three, as good as the first Fishdom. The second fishdom is too easy for me...

This game reminds me of JewelQuest for some unknown reason and I liked playing JewelQuest. I have been playing for the last couple of hours and it is very addicting.

I have ran this game in both fullscreen and windowed mode with no problems. Also it ran great on both Windows XP with SP3 and Windows 7 (NON-COMPATIBILITY MODE).

At first I thought the file size being small, it meant that it installed to the Games folder. The price of this game seems about right, if not a little bit low for a good quality game.

Install went without a hitch and it activated quickly. After reading a few comments about having issues with it going to Windowed, I gave it a try anyways and it worked with no issues.

Never really got to far into it to see if it gives you help or not just like what FISHDOM gives when you are stuck. This seems like a lot easier than it looks like in the photos.

Keep up the good work. A big thanks to the Developer and GGOTD for this awesome game...

Love this game! I've had it on another computer from a previous giveaway so was pleased to see it here today so I could load it on the laptop. It seems to be running fine on Win 7 but I didn't play for a really long time.

Thanks GOTD for all your great games. I have never commented before but decided it's time I give you thanks :-) I don't load every game offered but more often than not.

Got it running in Vista 32-bit without any issue.

Today's game is similar to Rise of Atlantis (also from Playrix), which I've played quite a bit of. The game's stand out feature seems to be how the player clears levels and gains power-ups. Having to drop certain pieces to the bottom of the screen to clear the level (or dropping power-ups to the bottom to use them) actually works very well and seems to be a pretty unique idea. Gameplay is a lot of fun. It seems the developers thought about the boards' layouts, as I've never run into a board where I ran out of possible moves.

However, I think I still prefer Rise of Atlantis for aesthetic reasons. Atlantis Quest seems to be going for an ancient look, but the colors seem a little too washed out. Animations throughout the game are pretty bland. Lastly, text was a little uncomfortable to read.

The game's story was fine, but its presentation was a little boring. The opening part felt more like an advertisement for the game than the beginning of a story. Every story piece was nearly completely static and wasn't a particularly interesting way to tell the story. Also, between every level, it brought up the same fact about the artifact I was rebuilding. Perhaps it could have different facts each time or only pop up once (either when the first piece is recovered or once the entire artifact is rebuilt).

And of course, it would be nice to see some widescreen options.

Just the same, this game is worth owning for match 3 fans. Gameplay is great and fairly unique. I just feel the game just needs a little bit of face lift. :)

Thanks GGAOTD and Playrix for yet another great game!

For the first time, I have been extremely disappointed with something from GOTD / GGOTD.

Whether or not a program / game is for me, I have always felt complete trust in items given away.

As I really like the games from Playrix, I downloaded this one - despite all the problems that people were having with Win 7. Like many others, it didn't work, and moreover, it locked up a couple of things, and uninstaller wouldn't remove it all. Spent some time removing everything and getting all back to normal (including a re-start), and playing around to ensure that the computer was behaving normally.

I then decided to try the alternative link in post #1. I made sure that I unticked the 'install Ask Toolbar' etc.

Game played fine from this, but the toolbar (including games links) was installed despite my saying 'no'. Furthermore, although I could close the physical window for firefox, the process continued running in the background - meaning that I could not re-open firefox after I closed it.

I have now uninstalled both the game and the toolbar and I think I'm back to normal.

Not good.

I downloaded this game a few year ago but lost it so I am really pleased to get it again, I didn't finish it. I love this game; it's interesting enough for me to keep coming back to it but not a game that needs a whole lot of attention. It's what I call a relaxing game when you want to escape and shut down and for me an essential. I remember a couple of levels were very hard to pass but I didn't stop playing as the game just seems to hold your attention. Thanks for giving this away today!

Alright. The game took forever to unpack resources. After that, it still wasn't any better. It took anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute to switch to a new screen, making it sort of unplayable IMO. So, it's not a keeper for me.

The music is under \Sound\Snd, each file beginning with Music_. They're ogg files, so you'll have to convert them if you want to use it with the game. Actually, the descr.txt file says you don't have to, but I'm not sure what formats it supports.

ReceiveMessage.exe is called by the game when there's some error that occured. You probably shouldn't see it, and it's probably disabled anyway.

No problem installing and playing this on Win7. There was no special action needed to register this game.

It is an older game, which shows on my big computer screen. A bit old school, with an addicting gameplay for the ones who like three-in-a-row. Play fine, ends after too may clicks to tell I'm very sure I end the game. A typical Bill Gates Question...are you sure you want to quit? Are you very, very sure?

The rise of Atlantis is very similair and I like the Rise more. So after a few rounds this one is not to keep. Not because it is a bad game, more because I like Rise better. Let's say, today's offer 8/10 for funfactor, 7/10 for graphs and music.

The best game in this genre is Age of Japan. I hope some weekend, GOTD offers Age of Japan. For now thanks!

@whiterabbit-uk (response to @59): Still remember about that offer I gave you? Still open.

This game: Still waiting for the resources to unpack (apparently converting JPEG to TGA, which probably increases the game's size to over 10 times what it would be ).

I hope I can figure out what ReceiveMessage.exe does. Maybe it'll do something once the game's done loading.

BTW, this game is written in Delphi/Pascal.

Don't download this game unless you enjoy being frustrated by over-zealous programmers. This has been released on GGOTD before, and this one is almost impossible to complete. There's a built-in feature - some kind of "Bad Something or other" that completely undoes what you've accomplished just when you think you're succeeding, and sets you back to the beginning. And at the upper levels, the tile placement is designed for failure. Simple as that. With tiles being blocked, locked, in places you cannot get to.. trust me on this. To beat this game you have to be lucky - it has absolutely nothing to do with skill or gameplay.

I said once before - people play games to succeed, and enjoy themselves. To build a structure into the game that outright prevents you from winning tends to defeat the purpose of the game.

Get it at your own risk. Be prepared to get as frustrated as you have ever been.Just remember: You can't beat this game.

I had no problem installing and playing this on XP SP3. I agree this is very similar to Rise of Alantis but just slightly different. But over all a good match 3 game. I enjoy these as well as the TM games. Still would like a nice RPG game (hint, hint) but definately a keeper. Thanks GOTD and Whiterabbit

I love all of playrix games, never have a problem playing them on my hp mini. About the only thing i could think of to change on this game would be to have power ups incorporated, ie lighting, bombs etc for so many matches or chains. Installed and registered fine, running win7 home premium. Have to give this an 8/10, if it incorporated the poer ups stated above would be a 10/10. Well worth the 13.95 asking price imo.

@whiterabbit re your backup up Reflexive copy.
When Amazon bought out Reflexive, and then later shut down the sales site, Relflexive broke their years long promise to arrange for their customers to always be able to activate the games if they were bought, closed up, or both.
The activation servers were taken down :(
Unless it is older (I think some of the very old ones didn't activate online?) then it cannot be activated anymore.

.........................Moderator comment,............................


ah yes I’d forgotten about that. I bought over 900 games from them as well. What a waste. Actually I've been searching for one of those key generators. I've found two so far, but they were for a different time period (Reflexive changed their coding system every few years).

I wouldn't normally consider using a key generator, but in this case I feel justified in doing so because I spent thousands on those games. I was given to believe I would be able to re-register them whenever I wanted for as long as I wanted to play them. They were all purchased before the economic crisis when games cost $19.99 each, so you can imagine the amount of money I spent.

I think it's an appalling state of affairs when that can happen. If you purchase a company in the UK you are liable for all of the promises made by the previous owners. This is why I don't like that sort of activation. I was very stupid purchasing so many from Reflexive, but at the time I found their site really good compared to other gaming sites. I purchase all of my arcade games from Alawar now because the code they provide with games is one you can use forever.

Downloaded, registered and played smoothly and without difficulty on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit netbook. I remember I had downloaded this previously for my Windows XP computer, which ended up crashing, so I was glad to see it again. It's a beautiful game, music is a bit boring, but interesting to play. I'd give it a 7 out of 10. Thanks so much GGOTD and Playrix.

I just arived at home and was going to try this game. I downloaded it 5 minutes after release and before I had to go (though I had this game already). So even if something changed, I still have the first realease for today. I read about problems installing this game on XP, so I tried on one of my computers which has XP (SP3).

The problems don't have anything to do with the OS, because I went in no difficulties, everything works fine.
I did however get a small window only after the first start telling me it was uncompressing files (one time event). Might be a good idea to be sure having enough space and clean out your temp folder before installing. This is only a guess, because I could not reproduce the problem.

I didn't have time to read all the comment, so this might be said before or the problem might be solved otherwise already.

@Stephen, comment #33: I'm with you in this, I think this is very true.

Cities on the map of ancient Griece are misplaced.
Artha is where Parga is (I think), but the coast is curved in a funny way (hard to tell what city is meant).
Athens is almost where Artha is and Sparta is placed too much to the north.
Troy is somewhere between Molos and Almyros, the journey is nowhere near the real Athens (South East main land Greece).
Katerini should be much more to the south.
Mytilene is placed not far from where now Troy is (In Turkey!) and should be more to the south.
Yhe way I located the cities isn't exact either, but it is definitely more realistic.

A screenshot of the corrected journey: http://i.imgur.com/QoaUH.png

Ofcourse, this all is not important for the game, but I would like to see the misplacements corrected.

I've not had time to try and sort the problem out. However you could try installing the MyPlaycity version ans well then mixing and matching the files to see if that fixes the problem. You should find that the MyPlayCity version will work. also try installing the giveaway version over the MyPlayCity version to see if that helps.

Well, I already have this game from myplaycity.com I think (there is also freegamepick.com, gametop.com and allgameshome.com which also offer free games so it has to be one of them!). It is a decent good game but it is much harder and less beautiful than the Call of Atlantis, the Rise of Atlantis or even 80 Days Around the World. (By the way, you can get most of them from the websites quoted before. Just make sure to untick any boxes while installing the game to avoid toolbar and change of your homepage).

I have finished all the other games but Atlantis Quest is tougher and I usually get in trouble after I get the wrong piece in Egypt. And then I must restart Egypt level from the beginning... By then I usually get discouraged! :'-(
I really need to finish that game and end my shame! :-)) Anybody got some cheats for Egypt level?

Already have this one..but it's a real challenge. I have beat Treasures of Montezuma and The Rise of Atlantis about 20 times each. But this one..not once. I like the story, the graphics and the music..just can't beat it.

So thanks GOTD and Playrix for reminding me..I NEED to beat this game! Thanks Wrascally Wabbit too.

It's nothing like Puzzle Quest, which is far better than todays giveaway. Though todays giveaway is still a decent match 3 game. Better than a lot of the crud that was released off of the back of Jewel Quest. Like any successful game, there's bound to be copycats. Still, as time progresses we do see improvements to the genre. Puzzle quest is definitelt one of those games that improved on the match three by combining it with RPG elements

Running Win 7 on a new dell desktop machine. Downloaded fine. Clicked to start game. Seemed ok but icon for the game from the bottom of my screen kept flashing through the game start page. Mouse moved but nothing would click. Tried Ctr/alt/del to get my task manager to open and had all sorts of 'ghosts' flashing through the game screen. I finally moved the mouse around until the game icon was flashing through the game screen again and clicked on it. THEN the game finally worked and the ghosts went away. I played the first match then used the menu button and exited the game. Only then was my task manager screen visible or accessible. Game shortcut now shows on my desktop and works properly. (just played one more puzzle to be sure).

Hi All
I have had this game on this XP3 laptop since Nov.2010. At that time Playrix only had a tiny splash dragon on the Menu screen pop in and out. They obviously couldn't leave well enough alone and thats where things get broken. I don't remember anything about a cowboy and I don't have the dragon in the bottom right hand corner of game screen.
I also don't remember anything about "Atlantis Resource Centre" - another unneeded tweek?
I hope they actually read these comments and fix things.
By the way I like the Rise of Atlantis better.
Thanks

If it helps re: compatibility or deciding if you want to download...

FWIW I compared the Atlantis Quest installed folders from today's GOTD & last years, today's installed as a test in win7 ult 64 SP1, & last years installed to win7 HP 64 where my wife's been playing it -- the files are identical. I did find that installing to the XP Mode VM [XP Pro 32 SP3], the Texture folder holds many, Many more files -- I don't know if that's peculiar to XP or an attempt to [unsuccessfully] get around the lack of hardware graphics support. In both rigs when the game's started there's a flickering icon at the bottom that goes away when clicked. Process Explorer does show Atlantis Quest using D3D, Direct Draw etc. along with graphics card hardware assist.

I have had this game since the last time it was offered. It is a very good game for passing time, though not extremely challenging (especially in the first few levels). It works perfectly on my Win7 Home Premium 64-bit OS without taking any special measures.

This is a great game (so far, just completed the first quest). It installed fine on Windows Vista Home Premium.

Works fine on my Win 7 HP 64-bit. Do NOT let Windows install this with recommended settings - that causes problems.

Just downloaded and installed and instantly started playing on my Win7 64 Professional set up. Absolutely no problems with it. Runs smoothly, interface is fine. No Atlantis Resource window has popped up. I've exited and restarted 4 times and it runs seamlessly.

Apparently whatever the problem was before, they've fixed. I have Windows 7 Pro. The game installed, registered, and works fine now.

Downloaded, extracted, installed smoothly on my Win 7 - 32 with Nvidia GeForce 61250SE nForce 430. This machine is a eMachine that was upgraded from Vista to Win7 not that really makes any difference. I played the first round/filled the object through all the screens with no problems. Worked fine for me. Thanks - Now to set it up on my wife's machine which is quite similar.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (incl all updates) - it's a no go for me as well. Have tried running it in compatibility mode (XP SP2 was recommended by the program compatibility wizard) but that's also a no go. :(

In 'regular mode' I get the 'Atlantis Resource Creator' window with nothing happening. Running in XP SP 3, XP SP2, 2000 & 98 compatibility modes, it goes one step further and adds 'Please wait...' inside the 'Atlantis Resource Creator' window but still nothing happens.

Interestingly enough though, I downloaded the Atlantis Quest free trial from the Playrix link, added Trial to the install and start menu folders to distinguish it from the GGOTD version and it opens and runs without any problem at all!

@Scott, #6: Why be surprised—and even claim it's "unthinkable"—that a game which Stephen quite clearly states was originally given away here in 2007 (maybe earlier?), and long before Win7 existed (!) doesn't claim to support Win7?

Also, for your information, quite a few corporate PCs out there do still run Windows 2000, and very happily. I encounter them from time to time in my day job doing tech. support.

Just because you have chosen to use Windows 7 doesn't mean that everyone else "must" do so. Most people that I know run XP on their home PCs, and don't plan to change that any time soon.

Thanks Cad, :)

It's sad that we have been moved away from XP, which apart from it's networking difficulties has been a brilliant platform for so long. It seems too me that all the corporate buisnessess such as Microsoft are doing is trying to make even more millions by continually bringing out new operating systems that apart from graphic enhancements are little different from their predecessors (okay they may have a few new unecessary toys added). Just another way to get Joe public to part with their hard earned cash.



To everyone who posted comments over the last several hours please excuse the delay in moderating, I lost access to all my computers for most of the day..... when my sons friends invaded the house and wanted to play Terraria online together

Runs fine on XP3. It's very close to Rise of Atlantis except performance is more sluggish. If you have Rise of Atlantis and can't get this one to run you're not missing much. Thanks for this though. As always, appreciate GGOTD.
