You play an explorer who has become trapped while investigating a large
pyramid complex. All around lie the treasures of an ancient pharaoh, but pyramids are hazardous places and danger lurks around every corner.Deadly scorpions and beetles will block your progress and mummies will hunt you down.Only by keeping your wits about you can you hope to unravel the secrets of the great pyramid and escape as a rich man.
You control the explorer using the arrow keys.Many obstacles will block your path, keeping you from taking the treasures and eventually escaping to freedom. Beetles will only move vertically while scorpions only move horizontally.Mummies move in all directions. These enemies are clever and will react when they see you by trying to catch you and end your explorations. Some wall segments can be pushed, allowing you to reach other areas or hide from enemies. The pyramid also contains scarabs that you can use to make the mummies temporarily vulnerable—allowing you to hunt them for extra points.
Deep within the center of the pyramid lies its greatest treasure, the fabled sword of the sun god Ra. It is this great treasure that casts the unnatural light which reaches throughout the pyramid and allows you to see your way so clearly. It is precious beyond measure, but in taking it you will upset that delicate system and the pyramid will be plunged into eerie darkness. Only the small glow remaining in the sword will light your way now, and formerly simple puzzles will seem new and challenging. All is not lost, however, for the sword has a second function.When wielding the sword you will be able to press and hold the spacebar to temporarily reactivate its glow. The sword transmutes gold into pure light, lighting your way but reducing your score.When the sword is active, the mummies will flee as they do when a scarab is active,
making your journey easier, but draining your wealth.
