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.
One of the myriad of indirect Myst descendants and sequel of sorts to Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster, Mummy is your standard first person adventure game from the mid-to-late nineties. You play the role of Michael Cameron, an investigator for the National Mining Company. One of your company's sites in Egypt has reached a bit of an impasse. It appears the workers there fear that they have come across sacred burial grounds and believe they have awakened a mummy. Your job is to investigate these claims (with the hope of proving them unsubstantiated so work can continue), all the while dealing with the Machiavellian-like site manager and the resident Egyptologist, who happens to be an old flame. Game play involves navigating static, rendered scenes, picking up and manipulating items and occasionally coming across someone, which leads to a short video conversation with them. You never get a choice in such conversations outside of potentially offering the other person an item to have or examine.
