I was mummified and stuffed in a dark tomb for millenia and all I got was this crappy video game.

I always thought this game was called Tutankhamen, not Tutankham. I stand corrected. According to the game’s Wikipedia page, the name was changed from the former to the latter because the full moniker wouldn’t fit on an arcade case. That’s what you call painting yourself into a corner.

I’ll leave it to keener minds to debate the relative merits of this game and Lock ‘n’ Chase.

    I had a lot of the Atari games, but I don’t remember this one at all. Regarding the name, I remember a silly advertisement in the London subways in the 1970s, which read “Yes, it is a little odd living in the tomb of Tutankhamen. What we wanted was a room in Tooting Common.” I assume it was an apartment locating company trying to imply that if you gave an ad over the phone to a newspaper, they’d screw it up.
