Tutankham
Atari 2600 - A2600

Tutankham is a 1982 arcade game developed by Konami and published by Stern in the USA. The game was originally called Tutankhamen, but it was found that the full name could not fit on slot machines, so the name was shortened.

Tutankham is a combination maze and shoot 'em up. Assuming the role of a grave guide to rob Tutankhamun's tomb, the player pursues creatures such as asps, vultures, parrots, bats, dragons, and even curses, all of which kill the player upon contact. The Conduit can fight back by firing lasers at the creatures, but it can only illuminate the left and right sides. The player is also endowed with a single screen-cleaning bomb ("flash bomber") in each level or life. Finally, each level has special zones that send the player to a level that enemies cannot use.

To progress, the player must capture keys to open locked doors in levels, look for large doors; optional treasures can be captured for bonus points. Each level has a Timer, when it reaches zero, the explorer can no longer shoot lasers, and once the level is cleared, the remaining time turns into bonus points.
