    His mummy don't dance
    and his daddy don't rock and roll.



    Horus isn't a happy guy. * You see, his father, Osiris, was murdered. His mother, Isis, just lays around the pyramid, grieving. And evil Uncle Set - who's caused all the problems - has challenged him to a fight to the death. * It's the original family feud - Egyptian style. * And it's all in The Eye of Horus. A brand new game from Fanfare - based on Gods and legends as described in ancient Egyptian mythology. * Set has ripped Osiris's corpse into seven pieces and hid them in a dark forbidden tomb deep below the scorching Sahara sands. Your task is to help Horus find the remains, and avenge his father's death. * But first Horus must search the dark catacombs for weapons and sacred amulets to aid him in battle. And he'll need all the help he can get. Because in the final confrontation, Set will turn into a dragon to destroy him. * Self mapping arcade adventure. * State-of-the-art animation. * High resolution graphics. * The Eye of Horus. An exciting new game for the MS-DOS, Amiga, and Atari ST systems. Look for it at your local software store. * It's no cruise down the Nile. In fact, it's downright ungodly.
