Although this game might look like and ever-runner sidescroller in the screenshots, it's a puzzle game where you have to overcome several obstacles to reach the end goal. These obstacles include but are not limited to walls that can be jumped over or destroyed by some explosive balls.
Technical performance is slightly around average. Graphics are poor and animations aren't better, and control (especially to jump) is awfully unresponsive. However, the puzzle part is smart and interesting, and a better technical performance wouldn't have made this game more fun.
However, in the Android free version, ads interrupt in-game and occasionally make the game to crash, which is a fatal flaw. Proceed at you own risk.

The Lost Mummy Android App is not played at the same pace as other running games. That is because it was never meant to be designed as a chase sequence app game. In some running games the character is chased out of the pyramid by the stalking crows presumably for trying to loot tombs found deep within the pyramids underground catacombs. These creatures were the sentry’s and the dude running off was the intruder. In the Lost Mummy Android app the chambers are filled with traps and snares to thwart would be grave robbers. In fact the only dude running around, more like walking around, is the Lost Mummy.
The point is our Lost Mummy Android labyrinth puzzle game is designed for you to rescue the mummy not raid his tomb. Your job as purveyor of heroic acts is to help this one particular mummy, who has a knack for escaping his sarcophagus, find the way back to his tomb so he can get some much needed eternal rest. If you could see the bags under his eyes you’d know what we mean as this mummy is in desperate need of some quality beauty sleep.
Will you encounter colorful chamber walls painted with beautiful hieroglyphics or be bejeweled with ancient riches, NO! Will you be rewarded with vessels full of rich tasty wines to immerse your temptation in, NO! Will you get any recognition whatsoever for saving the little guy from a fate more terrible, more horrendous, more everlasting than death itself, NO! None of the above… it’s a little too late for that as the ravages of time have all but caved in this place. All that is left is a bunch of booby trapped stoned caskets and crates covered in dust that you must navigate the mummy through to get him back to his cracked up old stone coffin.
You’ll just get the satisfaction of knowing that you were able to guide the Lost Mummy through 75 chambers of death defying (remember he’s a mummy, maybe even a she mummy, so it’s not like he/she hasn’t knocked on deaths door before) labyrinths to save the mummy from getting his/her nice white linens soiled. That my friend’s is worth fighting for! Have you any idea how expensive it is these days to dry clean linens? Especially 2000 year old mummy linens. The preservation costs are astronomical not to mention all the red tape you have go through just to get the darn things out to the cleaners. It’s not like there is a valet service in the middle of Egypt. If you know of one we could use the referral
So long story short we would like to invite you to play this way cool, slow paced action thriller we affectionately named The Lost Mummy… BTW: The Mummy is not really lost it just doesn’t know where it’s going but we’re confident you’ll help it get there. So ditch all running games for a bit and give our Lost Mummy some love… Stick with it through the early stages as the upper level inner chambers get quite addictive. If you do we’re sure you’ll love the app as much as you love running games.
Lost Mummy now includes 75 incredibly mysterious levels to challenge your instincts and problem solving skills. With a full set of new high quality eye catching graphics and lots of perilous booby traps to trip you up along the way we know you’ll be all wrapped up in these labyrinths.
