Pharaoh Rebirth+, from Japanese developer Krobon, was originally released last year as an episodic series. The game has since been bundled into a single game and translated to English, along with the addition of difficulty selection, a boss rush mode, and an unlockable bonus area. The game stars Jonathan, an adventurer who has been cursed and turned into a bunny, along with his adversary-turned-ally who was similarly cursed and turned a turtle. The unlucky duo find themselves cursed a second time and have only seven days to trek across Egypt to find a set of holy grails before they are killed
Serious though this may sound, the story is told as a lighthearted romp with plenty of humor and silliness... as you might expect from a game starring a humanoid turtle and rabbit. Along the way, players may uncover several movement abilities that allow them to reach new areas and discover stat-boosting powrups, secondary weapons, and loads of generally useless doodads. The overall difficulty level is low, but there is plenty of action to be had, and numerous interesting locales and unique gameplay elements to keep things fresh to the end.
Pharaoh Rebirth+ is now available for PC via Steam. Check our coverage here.
