    Unearthed:Trail of Ibn Battuta's review

    Published: 2014-05-29, by Peter Warrior.

    An Adventure, in caps, for mobile devices.

    • AAA game for mobile from Arab developer
    • Recommended: set voices in Arabic and subs in English: what an experience
    • Outstanding, console-like experience
    • Extra survival mode and unlockable extras
    • Glitches here and there, controls need improvement
    • Too obvious cliches and winks to referral media

    "Is Faris Jawad the Arabic cousin of Nathan Drake?"

    Although not as much well-known as Marco (Polo!), Ibn Battuta was a Berber explorer in the XIVth century who reached the Far East and came back after a 25 year trip, in which he visited Mecca, met the Mongol court ruling China and faced the desolation caused by the Black Death, just to name a few of his feats.

    Semaphore studios, set in Saudi Arabia considered this character as interesting as any other, and long story short, we can say we have here the heir to Uncharted, but for mobile devices, too. Aside from its outstanding technical performance, this peculiar origin is the best feature, to the point that playing it in Arabic, subbed to English, watching the sister of the main character wear a headscarf is an adventure by itself.

    For Android users, lucky owners of Tegra devices can enjoy enhanced textures, though the game isn't Tegra-exclusive and can be played in any device able to bear it. This game includes brawls, car chases, traps and lots of cutscenes, so have for sure it'll make the most of your device. Combat scenes can be a comedown, though, so don't put all your expectations in them. Likewise, don't expect either Tomb raider deaths, this game's violent but not gore.

    Recommendable for several and varied reasons.

    Waste of money. Despite reinstalls, it freezes at loading screen on Nvidia Shield tablet every time.
