In the centuries since the sealing of the Pharaoh’s Tomb, even the dim
memories of the fabulous treasure contained in the pyramid, have become
infrequent whispers on the lips of mad adventurers.
For three thousand years, the tomb has been a mystery and deathtrap. It is
rumored that the chambers contain dark and terrible dangers for those that
would make the pharaoh’s treasure their own. And even more ghastly, the
pharaoh and the guardian mummy are said to walk the chambers for all eternity,
destroying all trespassers in the tomb.
You’ve heard it all before and lived to tell about it and this is a chance of
a lifetime. You’ve spent months finding these ruins and finally you’re here at
the fabled tomb. Still… what if the legends are true? As you descend into
the first chamber, you hear footsteps…
Somewhere in the swirling sands of the Sahara stands an enigma. A secret tomb
that has for 43 centuries stood undisturbed… untouched… unknown and
unentered. The ancient pharaoh who lies buried within the vast twisting
underground chambers was the 16th and last of a vast dynasty. His treasure,
the gold, the art, the jewel encrusted sacred scarabs, all lie with him in the
untouched chambers of the crypt. Unimaginable wealth for any but an emperor
has lured you here and now you must descend…
Before his death, the pharaoh vowed that he himself and his hideous minions of
the underworld must protect his treasure from all who dare defile his timeless
And so you must slip past his sentries and deathtraps that riddle the passages
and shafts of his monument, and steal the treasures before you perish.
As an adventurer, you must explore the pyramid in search of these treasures,
while on the lookout for both the mummy and the pharaoh, who will shoot at you
if you are caught. You will be awarded an extra life for each treasure you
get. There is also the winged avenger. This creature does not harm you, but if
you are caught in his grasp, he will take you elsewhere in the pyramid.
There are keys that can be collected, and can open locked doors so that you
can visit new chambers in the pyramid. You lose keys when you get carried away
by the winged avatar or lose one of your lives. There are three levels. The
higher the level, the more treasures you have to get and there are also new
chambers. Higher levels require a password, which is revealed after playing
the previous level.
