Arriving at the pyramid's entrance empty handed, your journey starts off by searching some well-known chambers for items and weapons to help you on your quest.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic Metroidvania style game

While the graphics are on par with 16-bit the animations are a little stiff. That aside this game was incredibly fun reminding me of Metroid meets Spelunker with a little Pharaoh’s Curse. Played with an external controller and it’s even better. Because you respawn on the same screen you die the game is pretty easy, but that’s not really what this is about. It’s about exploration of the Pyramid and finding the missing idols within the maze.

Not worth it for the price

Definitely one of my favorites, because I never have many games on my iPhone at once, and this one stayed on for quite a while. I enjoyed it a lot, and i definitely would buy a second one if they made it, but there is one problem: the price. If it was a lot cheaper (even free) then I would definitely got it. It was much like the old school metroid games, which were really good.

Indie Spectacular!

It's no secret, I'm a huge Donut Games fan. That said, it wouldn't matter who made Traps n' Gemstones...the game stands on it's own as a true metroidvania style platformer worthy of being on any handheld gaming system.

This game is easily worth the money and is underpriced at the special launch price. This is loads of fun with lots of content, memorable gameplay, characters and storyline, and the game as a whole is epic in scope and design.
