This mod is one of the Rare mods where I can see such potential and such detail. I can clearly see that the people who worked on this actually used their time and put in a lot of effort. The Idea is excellent, all it needs now is continuity and story. I recommend the Devs to come back and take their time to finish the mod this year. I assure them that they will make the top 5 MOTY if they take their time to work hard and to release more. Why this mod can be dead is beyond me because it's really something new, not a shooter but focus on Egyptian magic? Brilliant Concept. Wish you luck, devs.

CURSE. Saying not really much about the mod so I checked it out.
First i was really sceptic. Egypt.. mummies and duh.. the fighting system really needs some fine touch, but if you overlook those little mistakes its a great mod with potential. The puzzles are good and the mod design is something like the best what I've seen so far. Great textures. Great models. Great effects. etc.. etc... One of the best TC's I've seen so far.
Keep working on this please. :D

CURSE is good in concept, but in practice it fails in practice.

Don’t get me wrong, this mod did a great job on custom textures and stuff. Switching stances also was a cool idea for me, but the control was very awkward. You are also locked on to one enemy at a time and there is no way to change target, I think.

I don’t even get the story, like all I do is just wondering around until I find another portal. Hell, there’s no backtracking either.

The majority of the enemy you face are zombies and, on occasions, archers. That makes the game quite a breeze, really.

Short, but amazing.

Fun, but is this dead now?

This game started to remind me Doom, this mod has some classic first person shooter elements like Finding keys, exploring and no story, just going somewhere and killing enemies.
Only a bad thing for this mod that this is too short for gameplay.

Really nice graphics, amazing job on the environments, and also the control system is very unique. however I just didn't enjoy it that much. I was wandering through without really thinking, and I wasn't sucked in as there is no story element. I realise there is not meant to be a story but as someone mentioned, it is all 'stand on a red slab to open red door' etc etc. I don't want to be too critical, it is a free mod after all - I hope this is taken as it's meant to be - constructive criticism.

original design ! puzzles based on doom concept : yellow, blue and red keys.
Gameplay not very intuitive, especially in fights.
No story, just exploring, finding keys, opeing doors, and teleport next level... not very exciting gameplay !
You can give it a try, but it's not one of the best mods;
nice work on creatures, though.
