It's the chance of a lifetime! You've been working for the National Mining Corporation (NMC) as a facilitator for years, usually dealing with smooth operating diplomats from all over the world. But now, the guy in charge of NMC's Egyptian mining operations is having trouble — details are sketchy. Is he having a problem with the local workers? Is the equipment breaking down because of the harsh conditions?
All you know is that Stuart Davenport, the experienced, on-location manager for overseas mining operations, needs help. Luckily, the company has decided to send you to help hurry the solutions along. Finally, you'll get a chance to do some sightseeing — visit the pyramids, the Sphinx, the tombs. As your plane makes its way to the hot environs of Egypt, your fervent mind recalls all those B-grade Egyptian mummy movies you watched as a kid, spurred on by the guidebook you've been reading about ancient mummies and curses. You chuckle and think: "How ridiculous!"
So goes the background story for Amazing Media Production's Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh. In the first-person perspective tradition of another of their games, Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster, this adventure takes you to an exotic location dealing with things macabre. The local workers at the Alexandria mining site are fearful of a curse they feel has been unleashed due to an unfortunate digging site that has disturbed the rest of ancient kings — your objective is to investigate and run to ground any problems and alleviate their fears.
In Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh, you'll encounter the supervising man-on-site, Stuart Davenport (played by Malcolm McDowell), who has begun to act strangely and deviously. The adventure will take you to more than 50 mystical locations with a matching number of puzzles to solve. An eerie mine, a Pharaoh's tomb, secret tunnels, hidden rooms and an old abandoned (?) WWII military base are just a few of the locales you'll stumble on during your journey.
EFX Systems, the audio design team for the movie Mortal Kombat, handles the effects in Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh. The interface is simple point-and-click, very similar to the action in the Frankenstein title. As a bonus, the package contains the full version of Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster, starring Tim Curry. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
