Friday Fun: The Rise of Atlantis

By Akemi Iwaya on November 25th, 2011


The best day of the work week is finally here, so take a few minutes to have some fun while waiting to go home. In this week’s game you set off on a campaign across ancient Mediterranean regions to acquire multiple artifacts in a quest for success.

Special Note: This flash version of the game allows you to play through three areas (Phoenicia, Babylon, and Egypt) of the overall campaign that is available in the full version. Even in its limited form it still provides a good amount of game play.

The Rise of Atlantis

The object of the game is to successfully gather the different pieces of artifacts from each level. Once you have gathered enough pieces you can reassemble each artifact and complete that part of your campaign. Watch for and gather the bonuses shown in the lower right corner whenever possible…they will be very useful later on.


Here is the campaign map. You will start off in Phoenicia where the small red flag is waving. You will also get to learn a new historical fact about each area every time you view the campaign map.


Click on two adjoining tiles to switch them or click on and drag one of the tiles to the desired adjoining square to switch them.

Note: You can monitor your remaining time on each level using the golden bar at the bottom of the window. The shorter the bar is, the less time you have left.


Here is your goal for this level…the first piece of the Bottomless Chest of Gold.


First piece collected!


At the end of each level you will be able to view a nice set of stats detailing the longest chain of tiles matched, amount of time for the level, your score, and more.


This screen is the one drawback to the flash version of the game. It will display each time before going back to the campaign map.


Time to start the second level of the campaign…


The second level allows you access to a very useful little tool…the Sun Power-up which will help you clear portions of the game board when used.


When the Sun Power-up reaches 100% click on it to shoot multiple fireballs across the game squares. The tiles they hit will disappear and open up those squares for tile movement/progress.


The reward for successfully completing the Phoenician part of the campaign!


Next stop Babylon!


When you begin the Babylonian portion of the campaign expect to see new challenges on the game board such as locked tiles and more. Good luck and have fun!
