This week’s Explorable Theme: Treasure!

Posted by Account Deletion {Family Gamer} | 8-Aug-16 | 21 comments

Explore and discover great games

Every couple of weeks we’ll be featuring games for exploration that share a common trait – a mechanic, theme, publisher, designer, etc. (and we’ll still be selecting from users’ favorites shelves on occasion!) There is no set number of games that will be featured, but we’ll try to incorporate a mix of old favorites and new titles where possible.

This week we invite you to explore games with a common theme: TREASURE!

I do not like these games very much.

@Tom, Tikal, and the sequel are very different games. The theme is just a sequel. Instead of finding a bunch of different temple as in the first, the second has you doing deep exploration of a single temple. I really enjoy the sequel, whereas I was only so-so in the original (Java was my favorite of the original mask trilogy.)

I didn’t know there was a Tikal II, but I love the jade colored mask on the cover of the original. Has anyone played both, and if so, how do they differ?

Fixed the Game Tips link for Tikal II (thanks, Andy) — apparently a very old mis-link.

There is a game tips page for Tikal II, but as noted, the main button for it links somewhere else. No tips yet, but if anyone wants to add some, you can do it here:

This is great! Much like the old Halloween explorables, I really like learning about games that tackle a theme in different ways.

Also, is it my imagination, or have the ghosts gone away?
