After Lara Croft made it look like so much fun, other games decided to pursue the idea of raiding ancient tombs like in Tiny Tomb. You wake up as an explorer in a blocky tomb separated into numerous cubed rooms. While you may not have all the best equipment, you're at least able to move around and that means that you're already off to a good start. The more of the tomb that you explore, the more treasures that you'll find. If you're lucky, you may even find a way out and be able to take others trapped in the tomb with you.
About Tiny Tomb
When it comes to exploration, many of us like the sense of freedom and speed that comes with racing through a huge world. In this one, the exploration is slowed down which makes sense since you're trapped in a mysterious tomb. Each room presents its own layout which you need to navigate wisely in order to progress. Every little thing that you find feels significant and you want to keep up the pace so that you can find more things. It's about getting into a lucky streak and keeping it going without getting too careless. By doing that, you can unlock all the secrets of the tomb.

The adventurer finds himself in a seemingly endless tomb filled with all sorts of environments, treasures, and dangers. Each area is broken up into several levels and the goal is to reach the end of each one while completing quests. The hero's stats, keys, and coins are shown around the tops of the screen while any equipped gear appears on pedestals around the bottom. Health is represented by hearts and if the hero runs out, they'll be taken back to the start.
The hero is forced to do quests for a mysterious entity that typically revolves around collecting, destroying, and hunting. While exploring the different rooms, the hero will need to navigate around traps and other obstacles. On his own, the hero is unable to jump over gaps, water, or raised terrain. There are enemies that need to follow the same rules, such as not being able to attack the hero if they're not in their line of sight. However, the hero can defend himself by kicking things which is done by moving him into the target. This is done to break things like pots and defeat enemies.
Throughout the tomb, the hero can find helpful items on pedestals or in shops that will give them access to special abilities like being able to reach across gaps. Other items may be passive and activate on their own such as granting the ability to jump over gaps. Other collectibles include keys which are used to unlock doors and coins which are used to buy things at shops. By completing quests, you'll unlock more items that the hero can use.
Tips and Tricks
The doorways of each chamber tend to be the safest which means that you can hang out in them while you observe the current chamber. Your movements need to be planned and deliberate since you won't usually have ways to protect yourself. Shops are optional so hoard your coins in case of emergency.
