A solid puzzle game with a nice theme and good presentation. Multiple solutions to nearly every puzzle, map editor and community puzzles give this game a ton of replayability. Definitely worth the price of admission. GG.

Very fun game - even though it made me nearly flip my laptop quite a few times. You need some quite developed spatial thinking and planning abilities to get those little bug(gers) to go where you want them, though sometimes just klicking randomly will lead to a victory too.

The one thing that did not quite sit well with me was that you never know how many more clicks you get before your horus statues - the equivalent of stars here - start vanishing. So basically, if you suddenly figure out how the hell the level you're playing is to be beat, you pretty much have to start it new, so you won't lose your little birdies.

++ Cool puzzle concept. Simple rules, yet it is possible to make challenging levels.
++ Having an editor (plus online level exchange) is great.
+ Nice simple clear graphics.
+ Nice Egyptian theme.
+ No performance issues here.
+ Linux!

- There were some challenging levels, but IMHO it could have done with a few more hard ones.
- Some levels (even on later areas) were so simple that all you had to do was touch each scarab right at the start, and wait. Some of these even awarded "innovative victories".
-- The achievements are a huge grind, and there's way too many. This has resulted in many people submitting trivial level packs that are just there to help you get the achievements.
-- A few bugs (including significant ones about scarab misbehavior) (reported here).

IMHO, 6/10.
