Tomb of the Mask is a high-speed vertical arcade/platformer that plunges players into a near-infinite maze, testing their agility, wit, and quick decision-making. As you guide your character through a labyrinth of twists and turns, the objective is not just to reach the exit but to do so swiftly while collecting coins and three elusive stars scattered across each level.
The initial levels serve as a gentle initiation, easing players into the gameplay mechanics. However, as the journey progresses, the challenge escalates exponentially. The maze becomes riddled with deadly traps, demanding agile maneuvers and rapid reflexes to avoid these perilous obstacles.
Speed is of the essence in Tomb of the Mask. As you navigate the labyrinth, quick movements are essential. Yet, this need for speed doesn't compromise the necessity for strategic visualization of the correct path. It's a harmonious blend of quick decision-making and pre-planned routes that ensures success.
The game's allure lies not only in its classic mode with a multitude of levels, each progressively more challenging, but also in its unlimited Arcade mode. This mode introduces a thrilling twist—a race against time as water levels rise. The pressure intensifies as you strive to ascend the maze in various environments while outpacing the encroaching water, heightening the urgency of your movements.
