Ibn Battuta is the real life Moroccan explorer, who explored most of the known Islamic world as well as non-Islamic lands. He is generally considered the greatest explorer ever.He went to places as far as China (which is impressive considering he started in Tangiers). He went as far south as the horn of Africa. He went through the entire Middle East and went westward to China, stopping in India in between. The protagonist of Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta, Faris Jawad isn't even on the same planet when compared to Ibn Battuta.
Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta is about treasure hunter Faris Jawad and his archaeologist sister Dania who are on the cusp of finding the hidden fortune of famed adventurer Ibn Battuta. They go all over the Middle East, from Morocco, to Damascus, Alexandria, and eventually Dubai. The game features horrible combat and the guns look like they are using BB guns. The whole game looks like it was made by the skeleton of the actual Ibn Battuta.
- There is an Ibn Battuta mall in Dubai, which is a honor for someone who is considered the greatest explorer of all time.
