The Stone of Destiny is an exciting game with the detective plot.

There are 27 levels of adventures, during which you wander the depths of forest, sneak into the tomb, explore the bottom of the sea and ancient pyramids, and many, many more. Puzzling minigames involve drawing runes and moving sarcophagus's. Step by step you become closer to the moment when you reveal the truth about your uncle and solve the riddle of the stone of destiny. Sometimes it gets really hard to move any farther, then you may use the hint. The number of hints is not limited, but some time should pass before the next one is available.

What makes this game special is its interactive graphics. The mix of comic book style (in the narrative part) and mysterious sceneries makes the atmosphere of adventure film even more vivid. The Stone of Destiny for iPhone and iPod Touch has the feature of zooming the picture, so you can see any object in detail. The interface allows most effective usage of the portable device screen ever.
