The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987) - NES:

    RAIDERS OF THE LOST PYRAMID

    A fabulous fortune, believed to be that of legendary King Tut's richer brother, Tut-Tut, lies within a pyramid, buried in the deepest part of the deepest cave in the world. The treasure is guarded by the ghosts of dead spelunkers who descended, never to return. It is said that the mere sight of the glittering treasure drove them first to blindness, then madness, and ultimately death.

    GAME PLAY: You are not the first spelunker to attempt to recover the treasure of Tut-Tut, but you intend to be the last--despite the unspeakable dangers that await you through the six levels of intricate and increasingly challenging subterranean caverns. Deadly steam vents, boiling lava pits, and chattering bats block your progress. Taunting spirits of dead spelunkers beg you to join them permanently. Through seemingly endless uncharted passageways, you swing on ropes and ladders, tumble over waterfalls and plunge to the very depths of the earth on an abandoned mine railroad. Do you have the skill to overcome such adversity? If not, you're in deep, deep, trouble.
