If we take a look at the world history, we can see clearly how important is the Middle East. Most of the archaeological discoveries took place there. Moreover, the main religions are born right in the middle of it.
Ancient Egypt in Video Industry
Additionally, the main living testimonies that still stands today are the Egyptian Pyramids. Those squared pyramids influenced many Hollywood movies, as well as video games. For instance, the Indiana Jones movie called Riders of the Lost Ark was mainly influenced by these huge Egyptian tombs. This is just an example, but the list goes on.
If we take a look at video-games, the list of games related to ancient Egypt is even longer. Some of the popular games from this category are Tomb Raider Anniversary and Age of Mythology.
In Tomb Raider Anniversary, Lara has a vision which reveals that the third and final part of the Scion is in an Egyptian tomb. If Tomb Raider was just about the Egyptian places, in Age of Mythology you’ll lead large Egyptian armies, fighting the Greeks or Norse.
A Piece of Egypt in Las Vegas
With a fast trip to Las Vegas, we can see the great Luxor Las Vegas Hotel. The hotel has two main constructions, a replica of the Great Sphinx of Giza and a huge pyramid with a sky beam on top.
If we go deeper in the Las Vegas world, we can find casino games based on Egyptian world. Some of the online slots that are based on Egyptian theme are: Temple of Ausar, Pharaoh’s Gold II, Egyptian Goddess, Riches of Ra, Ra’s Legend, Egyptian Dreams, Gods of Giza, Cleopatra’s Secrets, Double Buffalo Spirit and this is just the beginning of the list.
From this list, the most famous online gamble machine is, of course, Book of Ra. This virtual reel is like a fruit machine with Indiana Jones who searches for a legendary book in ancient Egypt. By spinning the 5 reels with Egyptian symbols try to get the special symbols, which are the explorer and the book. This adventurous game has two main versions, Classic and Deluxe edition. The first version has 5 reels and 9 pay-lines, while the Deluxe version has 5 reels, 10 pay-lines, and better graphics.
As has been noted, the Egyptian pyramids are still a successful influence to the whole industry of entertainment.
