Nefertiti Overdrive is a game of high-octane action in Ancient Egypt. Defying physics and common sense, you are legendary heroes in the Kingdom of Egypt. Do you want to leap from crocodile head to crocodile head before planting your sandaled foot directly in the face of an Assyrian giant bearing an axe bigger than you? Do you want to rebound off the side of a pyramid and fly into the centre of a mob of badguys, whom you then lay low with your lightning-fast fists?
