Cool. Good game.
Tutankham Returns (C64)
A downloadable game
This game for Commodore 64 is a tribute to Tutankham, an arcade game developed by Konami in 1982.
This version is made up of 7 completely new stages.
The game works perfectly on both PAL and NTSC models. However, for game speeds similar to the original arcade game, it is suggested using an NTSC model.
In this game, the player controls an explorer who is robbing Tutankhamun's tomb. The player will search for precious treasures (maps, lamps, chests of gold & jewels, and, above all, the golden mask of King Tut) and fight off the various creatures that guard the tomb to ultimately find the way through the catacombs.
The player must guide the explorer through a series of progressively more difficult mazes across different stages. The explorer may move in four directions, but can only fire in two directions, left and right, making the player helpless in vertical shafts. There are also "warp zones" located in random parts of each maze that allow the explorer to be teleported from one area of the maze to another. There are several different creatures that constantly materialize from "spawning zones" within the maze and attack, including crows, snakes, bats, dragons, and other magical beings. Those creatures can be destroyed to score between 20 and 60 points with either bullets or a "flash bomb". The explorer has a single "flash bomb" per life that destroys all enemies on the screen. On each stage, the explorer must pick up keys in order to unlock the door to the room where each of the treasures are kept, allowing the passage to the next stage. Along the way, the explorer may grab optional treasures (rings and coffers) for bonus points. If the timer reaches zero, the player's ability to fire is removed. Bonus points are awarded based on the amount of extra time left over when a stage is completed. After the player has recovered the King Tut's treasures in all the stages, the game starts over again with increased difficulty and more keys to pick up.
At 30000 points and then every 80000 points the player earns an extra life, for a maximum of 6 lives.
There are 4 difficulty levels to choose from: Easy, Normal, Hard, Expert.
There are also 2 fire modes:
A) When you press fire, the left and right bullets are fired simultaneously.
B) To fire the bullet on the left, press fire and move the joystick lever to the left (the explorer does not change direction). To shoot right, press fire and move the lever to the right.
Joystick lever: move the explorer
Fire button: shoot
Spacebar: detonate the flash bomb
While playing, press F7 to pause or F1 to stop the game and go back to the title.
