What's New in Version 1.0.2
- fixes for Macs with GMA 950/X3100
Well, leaving my original review below, I still think Egyptian Pyramids is a pretty good app. But I wish it would let me fly around like the app, itself, does in autonomous mode. I also wish it would teach me something about the sphinx and temples, but it does not. It is just eye candy. (But very good eye candy) I finally decided that my navigational abilities are not at fault. This thing is really difficult to 'drive' in walkabout mode. I keep falling off the path and it is always hard to get back on track. It would be less frustrating if there was some way to stay on the walkways.
I like this app.
You can read about the sphinx and pyramids, but prose doesn't give you a sense of what the Giza plateau is really like. This app does. If you let it run itself, it pans all around the sphinx and the associated cult temple and Khafre's valley temple. Well, the ruins, anyway. One complaint: when you navigate in manual using your mouse and arrow keys, it is easy to get into places you don't want to be -- like stuck in a corner. And it isn't easy to steer to interesting places you want to get to. I guess I need more practice "driving" the thing. Or maybe the navigation controls need to be tweaked.
But, I really like it.
In the future, maybe we will see a version that shows the sphinx and other buildings as they were in 4th dynasty Egypt.
