Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramids - Game Introduction

Welcome to the Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramid walkthrough on Gamezebo. Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramid is an Adventure/Hidden Object game played on PC, created by Gameshastra and available at Big Fish Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Romancing the Seven Wonders: Great Pyramid.

General Information

  • From the Main Menu, click on Options to change the Sound and Music volume, Mute all sound and turn Windowed Mode (doesn’t work for resolutions less than 600 pixels) on and off.
  • Click New Game to start a new game
  • Click on Change to change your profile or add a new one. Note: if you delete a profile, you can’t go back and use that same profile name, later.
  • Help doesn’t do anything at this point except to tell you about the other Main Menu buttons
  • Click the Continue button to start a previously saved game. Note: the game saves automatically, and you will overwrite your previous save if you click on Play instead of Continue. The game does not offer separate save slots.
  • Click 3 times to skip the opening movie.
  • Find 36 scarabs to unlock a Bonus Puzzle at the end. Note: there are more than 36 Scarabs, (I found 45) so you will be able to find all you need. You can also return to previous areas to get scarabs you may have missed.
  • During gameplay, click the Pause button at the lower left, or press the Esc key, to Quit the game, change the Options or repeat the Help instructions for the current scene. You may also click on the Help button, also located at the lower left, for instructions on the current scene or puzzle.
  • Move your cursor around the scene to see other locations to you can move to. The cursor will change to an arrow. Move your cursor to the bottom of the screen to return to the previous location. Note: in certain areas, like the Tomb, you won’t be able to exit completely out, by clicking back. You will need to complete this section in order to proceed.
  • Clicking on the wrong spot, 3 times, before finding the next item, deducts 10 points from your score. This is cumulative and you will be penalized, regardless how long it’s been between misclicks. If you find an item, this cancels the misclick count. Click too fast and you’ll get an additional 10 points deducted for each additional, incorrect click. Note: the hot spot for smaller items is very precise and may result in a misclick if you don’t click on the exact spot the game requires. Remember this if you’re sure it’s the correct item. You may need to click again, on a different spot, for that item.
  • Click on the green symbol, in the lower right, just below your score, for a hint. The Hint button is empty each time you start a new Item List and takes 60 seconds to charge. You may use it as often as you like, but you must wait 60 seconds for it to recharge.
  • The game is somewhat non-linear, and you can travel to many areas in any order you choose. However, you may need to complete Item Lists or Puzzles/Minigames in order to continue to additional areas.
  • The Item lists will be different for each player, and each time you play, however the Scarabs and Inventory Items will be the same, and in the same location, each time you play. After you complete the Item List, the Inventory Item will highlight; click on it to add it to your Inventory.
  • During Puzzles/Minigames, the Skip button will charge in 60 seconds. There won’t be any points deducted from your score for skipping a minigame. If you return to an area with a minigame that you’ve already completed, just click the Skip button to continue. You don’t need to wait for it to charge.

Hieroglyphics Tile Game 1

The object of this minigame is to remove the tiles, from the board, that are shown at the top. You'll play 10 rounds, of 5 tiles, and have 10 seconds to clear each round. The tiles must be adjacent to each other (any grouping of 5; they may touch on any side or any corner) and clicked on in the exact order shown. If you haven’t cleared all 5 within the allotted time, the board will clear and you’ll be given a new set of tiles. Rounds are saved as you complete them, and you only continue from where you left off. See the screenshot for an example. Note: The solutions are different each time you play.

Canopic Jar Puzzle 1

Match the lids to the correct Canopic Jar. You play 3 rounds and have 30 seconds to complete each round. If you run out of time, the current round’s puzzle will reset; you will not need to start completely over. The key to solving these is to choose either the far left or the far right jar and begin moving the lids so that you match the end jar first, then continue matching toward the opposite side. You can only switch lids with the jar directly next to it on the left or right. In the example shown below, switch the lids in the following order: 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 4, 4 and 5 and finally 1 and 2 again. Note: The solutions are different each time you play.

If you wait too long, or the slot fills up, tiles will no longer be available, and the board will reset. You need to clear 30 tiles to complete the puzzle.
