Ankh is a remake of the 1998 RISC OS point-and-click adventure Ankh: The Tales of Mystery. Assil, a young Egyptian architect's son, steals the key of the great pyramid in Cairo to throw a party, but once inside he accidentally knocks over some ancient urns. Struck by a death curse of a disturbed mummy, he has very little time left. At the same time, however, he receives the magical ankh, and he may be about to meet the woman of his dreams. The pharaoh is the only one who can help you, but you are just a pleb, so you need to travel through the Egyptian locale and find a way to attract his attention. (MobyGames)

A note about the downloads available from above:

  1. The game plays in English and German.
  2. download is an updater to version 1.1
  3. The third download is an updater to version 1.2, but supposedly for a special edition, so I do not know if it is useful. The patch applies without complaint.

A fix for Mac OS X 10.7 can be downloaded here.

I own the "Special Edition" where this manual came from. The box says: "Including extra stuff like concept artwork, trailer and wallpapers."

Any idea if we're going to have the other Ankh games, even if the third doesn't make the 10 year rule until next month?

Updater 1.2 is "Combo" so it's Not necessary to apply the Updater 1.1 first or ever.

I loved Ankh when it came out for the Mac. Hilarious humor and classic adventure gaming. Be aware though that the version they put up for sale (version 1.0) was quite buggy. As far as I remember it was impossible to finish the game without the patch due to crashes to desktop along with missing sound samples, textures etc.. So make sure to apply the updates.
