Description

Mercer Mayer's Little Monster is back exploring the lands of Egypt. An archaeologist named professor Pickle explores a tomb holding the mummy of the Pharaoh named Thanxfurnuthen, but gets trapped in the tomb while exploring. Little Monster and Detective Kerploppus are called to Egypt, to save the professor. To open the door of the tomb, you must journey across Egypt and find five magic rings. To find the rings you must ask people about what they know about Egypt, collect scarabs for money and decipher clues about where the rings are hidden.

Trivia

This game contains gameplay intended rather for older children and is not really educational, unlike The Smelly Mystery, the first game with Little Monster as a Private Eye.
