Are you kidding me? (2010-04-25 12:43) Cube 8
The arrow keys work just fine. I finished it many times! Tested on XP 32- and 64-bit.
Try turning the Num Lock off before starting the game.
Arrow keys do not work (2009-12-09 14:19) yoavtz
Cube 8's comment seems wrong:
while the arrow keys do work in-game,
they do not work in menus and logic puzzles (which makes only the first chambers playable).
Unlike what cube 8 said, the num-lock key actually has no effect in my case.
Tested with v0.72 and v0.71 on Vista.
Duplicate game entry (2009-05-30 07:23) Cube 8
A note to Admin: I have found the same game exists in the database as "Ancient Empires". I would suggest a cleanup. It's pointless and confusing to have duplicate games.
Arrow keys are working! (2009-05-30 07:19) Cube 8
I discovered this by accident on version 0.72 and it works on v0.73, too. The controls (arrow keys) work flawlessly in every aspect of the game! Menus, profiles, puzzles, everything! All we need to do is just turn OFF the Num Lock! Either before we start the game, or after starting it; it doesn't matter. It probably works on older versions, too. I haven't tested it.

Problem:
The arrow keys do not work.

About the game:
Excellent puzzle game. I hope DOSbox would support it soon.
