Build Ancient Persia in this engaging puzzle game! This land was filled with luxurious gems and metals that were set to impress peasants and visiting nobles alike! But its exotic gardens and majestic architecture have long since vanished in the passing sands. Now you can seek out the riddles of these ruins as you travel through the land of a thousand and one nights. You will need skill and a keen wit to unlock a mystery never before seen by man, here in the Cradle of Persia!


It's a tile-matching game where the tiles have icons of city resources. Matching three or more of these tiles collects them to their respective resources tab. By combining these resources, you can erect buildings.

For finishing a level, you have to break the marbled background before time runs out or you'll lose a life. You can also collect bonuses that will help you during the game, like lightning bolts that destroy a random amount of tiles.
