I never played Tutankham much in the arcade, but it always reminded me in a way of Gauntlet. In any case, I can't judge this well on its merits as an arcade port but in the most vague way. The game sure looks good, and does faithfully keep the main game elements that I remember. Like all the other Parker games, the musical part is pretty basic, and the sound effects average. Still, seems to be a pretty decent game.




ROM No ROM variants have been identified.
Box No variations have been found.
Manual No variations have been found.
Overlays Custom overlays have been designed and distributed by Psycho Stormtrooper.
Label No variations have been found.
Easter Eggs No Easter eggs have been found. It appears, however, that at least the European market release doesn't play right on Intellivision II - it hangs after a short amount of play. Anyone care to verify this?

Scrounging for Treasure Like the other Parker Brothers varians, this seems to be a reasonably well-done game. Since I'm not familiar with the original, this works fine for me.
