Product: The Pyraplex
Genre: Puzzle, Simulation, Strategy
Kairosoft's hit rate is the stuff of legend - the Japanese developer is a powerhouse when it comes to pumping out time-sapping classics, and it hasn't delivered a dud yet.
The good news is that The Pyraplex is yet another title that's worthy of your attention. The bad news is that it revisits a lot of concepts that Kairosoft has already explored in previous outings.
Set in a heavily commercialised version of ancient Egypt, the game tasks you with creating the ultimate pyramid.
You might assume that this involves building a fitting monument to a recently-deceased Pharaoh, but that's not the case here. Instead, you have to fill your stone edifice with shops, eateries, and other attractions.
The Pyraplex is typically assured stuff from Kairosoft, but it shares a little too many similarities with past offerings
