My entire family was enchanted by this game, especially my father. It was an amusing illustration of ancient history, combined with a maze/shooter game, which made for enjoyable gameplay.
The controls took some getting used to, making sure to press the joystick in the direction you wanted to fire, etc. Graphics were a bit limited. And the "beep-beep" of the explorer walking through the tomb got annoying after a while (especially when I was trying to sleep with my dad playing in the next room).
A further snag....After completing level four, you started over....the only appreciable difference from starting at the very beginning was that any lives/laser flashes used were not returned, You got one extra flash for completing all the levels, but it took me one to get the keys from both dungeon 3 and dungeon 4. Thus, I was using flashes faster than I replenished them, making it impossible for me to complete the fourth dungeon more than twice (when I got to that door a third time, I did not have the key).
The Bottom Line
Interesting way to learn history and have fun at the same time
