Tutankham is an arcade action game played from a top down point of view. You are an explorer in King Tut's tomb on a mission to retrieve as many of the valuable treasures as you can find. In addition to the treasures, you will also find a key in each of the chambers. This is needed in order to unlock the entrance to the next, more difficult chamber. Be careful, for the tomb is guarded by many dangerous creatures! Cobras, bats, scorpions, and more all appear in the maze and will cause you to lose a life if you're caught! To defend yourself you are armed with a laser gun which you can fire left or right, but not up or down. In each of the mazes you are also give one "flash" which can be used to destroy all creatures currently on the screen.

Parker Brothers ran a "Fight the Pharaoh" contest that if you sent an entry on a 3x5 piece of paper with your name, address and zip code to their contest address, you could win the grand prize of $3000 in video games or equipment or 1 of 100 Super Cobra video games or 1 of 2000 "I Fought the Pharaoh" t-shirts. Here is a poster advertising the contest and game.
