GAME TRIVIA

The game was originally titled Tutankhamen, but the publisher discovered the full name could not fit on the arcade cabinet, so the title was shortened.

GAME DESCRIPTION

Tutankham arcade cabinetInside King Tut's tomb are treasures beyond your wildest dreams. They can be yours... if you dare to take them.
Supernatural creatures roam the chambers of the tomb guarding the treasures at all costs. Your only defenses against them are your laser gun and... your wits.Blast away, snatch the loot, escape through secret passage-ways before it's too late! And when you see a key, take that, too. It will unlock a door to the next burial chamber and the next adventure. Enter King Tut's tomb and see what awaits you... if you dare.

TutankhamPort of Konami's arcade game released in June 1982.

OPINION

Even if the animation is choppy and the graphics lost some colours compared to the original game, this version is good. Animation of the enemies is smooth and this game is interesting enough. You guide your adventurer across the tomb through a horizontal scrolling while shooting at snakes, crows, bats, dragons and cats and while collecting treasures. One of the difficulties is that you don’t have any vertical shot.
Note that the arcade cabinet used to have two joysticks: one for moving, the other one to shoot.

Note : 4/5
