Tutankhamen - 20081999120000 by Shadow Lord
Game:TutankhamenCompany:Konami
Type:PlatformPlayers:1/2

Tutankhamen, nicknamed King Tut by historians, is famous for four things. The first, is that he was the "boy-king;" he was crowned when he was 9 and died when he was 18. The second thing is that he revived the worship of Amon in Egypt, moving the capital back to Thebes. (Ok, so maybe nobody cares about the second one any more.) Third, he was found with his vast burial treasure almost completely intact in 1922: a time when most people were sure that the riches of the pharohs were long since stolen. Fourth, he has a classic arcade game named after him!
Before is death, Tutankhamen (pronounced TOOT-en-KA-men) placed a curse upon all who would steal his gold from his tomb. This game appropriately makes the boy-king's tomb a very dangerous place to be... with killer moths, crows, scarabs and asps appearing from thin air and pursuing you relentlessly. Each time you complete a level, you get another one of Tutankhamen's famous 14 treasures. Along the way, pick up keys, rings and coins for bonuses. You are equipped with a laser gun (I'm pretty sure that Howard Carter didn't have one of those!) to fend off the boy-king's guardians.
This game is fast-paced, addicting and exciting, but it carries a few curses of its own in terms of gameplay: First, you cannot shoot up or down. Only left and right... since you have to navigate several hallways that run up and down, you are incredibly vunerable quite often. Second, the monsters regenerate too fast, and they move too fast. Worst of all, you have a strict timer that compels you to make foolish risks.
Got it all? Good! There will be a test on Egyptian History next time you log on this website. Bring a blue book and a #2 pencil.
