'''Sutek's Tomb''' is the name for the repository of riches built in the honour of [[Sutek]], a hero and ruler of an ancient [[Geb]] culture, and of the [[Wikipedia:Bejeweled|''Bejewled'']]-[[Wikipedia:Clone (video games)|clone]] and [[Wikipedia:Adobe Flash|Flash]] puzzle game where the players attempt to open the tomb's impassable lock by removing tiles via aligning them up by symbol in rows or columns. Whenever tiles are removed, those above fall down, thus the screen never remains clear.  
'''Sutek's Tomb''' is a [[wikipedia:Adobe Flash|Flash]] puzzle [[game]] released on 13 November 2003. In it, players attempt to open the impenetrable lock to Sutek's Tomb, the first pyramid or ''gebmid'' built in the [[Lost Desert]], which contains the treasure of [[Sutek]], the leader of the ancient, lost [[Geb]] culture.
+
 
+
The lock contains lots of tiles that the player can slide around in order to remove them. Whenever tiles are removed, however, more fall down from above, so the screen never clears. The format is like the video game [[Wikipedia:Bejeweled|''Bejewled'']].
+
 
+
Zen mode was added on 9 January 2004, and has a much longer time limit but earns the player far fewer points. Sutek's Tomb has been featured in the [[Games Master Challenge]] in [[Games Master Challenge 2007|2007]], [[Games Master Challenge 2010|2010]], [[Games Master Challenge 2011|2011]], and [[Games Master Challenge 2012|2012]]. It was also featured in [[Daily Dare]] in [[Daily Dare 2009|2009]], [[Daily Dare 2010|2010]], [[Daily Dare 2011|2011]], and [[Daily Dare 2012|2012]].

The object of the game is to earn as many points as possible by realigning on-screen tiles in order to eliminate them, within a time limit. Tiles are removed if they are aligned into a row or column of three or more adjacent tiles of like symbols, which earns the user points.

A tile may be swapped around with a tile above, below, or to the side of it - although not diagonally. However, the swap ''must'' result in lining up three or more symbols for it to be a valid play. The user clicks on one tile, and then an adjacent tile, in order to swap them around.

Similarly, if the swapping of two tiles results in multiple different sequences of symbols being removed, the player receives bonus points. Due to the nature of the game, the maximum number of tiles that can be aligned in one sequence when making a swap is five. Aligning five tiles will score more points than aligning four, which will score more points than aligning three. There are several [[Sutek's Tomb#Special tiles|special tiles]] that have additional effects to game play.

In the event that no moves are possible, the board will be reshuffled - all the tiles are replaced.

There are three game play modes. Normal and hard modes play in a similar fashion to each other, except hard has a large game board and earns more points. Zen mode has a very high time limit, but the very low payout make it more suitable for fun than for earning [[Neopoints]].

While the majority of tiles will only vanish with in a combination of three or more identical tiles, there are a few other, special tiles that have different effects. All of them, however, can also be eliminated by making a line of three or more of them.

While the majority of tiles will only vanish with in a combination of three or more identical tiles (the maximum number of tiles that can vanish at once through this being five), there are a few other, special tiles that have different effects. All of them, however, can be used in standard three to five elimination sequences.  
  
 
*'''Bomb Tile''': A red bomb, this tile, if dropped more than two rows at a time, will destroy itself and all the tiles above it - known as a ''Bomb Combo''. The number of points gained depends on how deep the bomb was when it exploded. If it reaches the bottom of the screen, it disappears and you gain 5 points on Hard mode or 4 on Easy mode.
