TRAPS N' GEMSTONES is an adventurous platform game, among gamers typically known as the "Metroidvania" genre, from Donut Games, the developer behind chart-toppers Traffic Rush, Sunday Lawn, the "Rat On A" series and many others.


Precious relics have suddenly started to disappear from a well-hid pyramid that has been guarded by Bedouins for generations, who claim to have spotted an unknown perpetrator.
As a freelance archaeologist and expert on ancient explorations, you've been secretly called in to Egypt to help them solve the mystery.

Arriving at the pyramid's entrance empty handed, your journey starts off by searching some well-known chambers for items and weapons to help you on your quest.
But as you get deeper into the pyramid, you begin to realize that this mystery will require more than just a whip, a sharp mind and a good amount of explosives to unravel.


- Non-linear gameplay: Walk around and explore freely

- Non-destructive gameplay: When failing, you don't restart from the beginning, but at the entrance of the current chamber

- Easy to use D-PAD touch controls

- Supports external KEYBOARDS and GAMEPADS

- Versatile character: You can run, roll, swim, slide, ride mine carts, etc.

- MAP & INVENTORY OVERVIEW: Keep track of visited areas and found items, weapons and relics

- NO IN-APP PURCHASES: Buy the game, get everything

I couldn't play the game when it launched a few years back. I recently saw the game was updated for the latest Android 13 version and all bugs were fixed. I instantly bought this and the company's other game Vulture Island together. I must say this really is deserving of the pocketgamer gold award. The simple gameplay along with the colorful graphics and the metroidvania style of platforming is all done so well that you'll lose hours into this without knowing. A big thanks to the developers! ❤️❤

The game works perfectly after the recent update. Although I didn't consider it a true metroidvania, (more like a puzzle platformer), the exploration is very good and I ended up playing half an hour without noticing. It's neat, fun and worth the price.

Hi Gley. Just wanted to let you know that we finally managed to track down that nasty crash bug. The new, fixed version is out, along with better support for USB and Bluetooth keyboards and joypads. Check it out if you're still interesed, and sorry for any inconvenience the old crash bug may have caused. Best, Daniel at Donut Games
