  • Summary: Hand of Greed is an intense and remarkably unique adventure game that puts your reflexes, timing, and speed to the test in a magical, blade strewn gauntlet. Avoiding everything from swinging guillotines to spiraling sawblades, you rack up wealth by grabbing ancient gold coins, valuable gems, healing rubies, and more!

    If you get cut, blood spills across the screen, so watch out! Load up on loot before your health or the sands of time run out.

    Hand of Greed features progressively complicated blade combinations and settings that make up 50 distinct levels that span deserts, dungeons and jungle environments. You can rack up achievements, high scores, and vast coffers of wealth that can be compared via OpenFeint.

    Feed the greed!

    By the last level of the first world the game had become absolutely brutal. Don't get me wrong -- I think it's an excellent game that's perfect for the platform, but I wound up more stressed than anything else while playing those more difficult levels.

    Hand of Greed is the classic tale of a great idea that doesn't really pan out as well as I would've hoped.

    It's a winning formula that is as simple as it is effective.
