Great game. Hilarious about the spelling error on the front. This was just pointed out in an ebay listing.

Hands down, one of the best games on the 8-bit Atari. I remember going back to this game so many times - the random layouts made it always fresh, and you gotta love the gun shooting mummy and pharaoh!

Another Synapse classic, giving you a light shoot 'em up and treasure hunt. Sort of like the Bruce Lee game, which came out a year later and by a different company, taking place in the catacombs. And there's the luck of the draw when the bird drops you off at a screen you've already completed or one you haven't. This usually adds to the time it takes to complete the level.
