DescriptionBig Karnak is a side-scrolling action game set in ancient Egypt. The pharaoh's wife was taken by flying creature and of course now he embarks on a quest to get her back. On his way, he has to fight a lot of mystical beings and animals, e.g. skeletons or snakes.
The game is divided into three stages with a different gameplay focus. The first level is a standard hack & slash: the pharaoh walks from left to right and fights enemies (which mostly go down in one hit) and one boss in melee combat. The second level, a temple, has a maze-like structure with multiple junctions. The pharaoh needs to explore this temple, find a few women to rescue and a magical weapon to proceed - a map which appears directly after entering the temple shows the way as well as hints for the two switch puzzles. At the end of level one, the pharaoh acquired a staff which is able to do ranged attacks which is helpful to deal with the increased amount of bosses and mini bosses. The third stage is mostly a linear sequence of boss battles.
Each level has to be beaten within a time limit while avoiding to die. The pharaoh has a energy bar which is depleted with enemy hits and one of the lives is lost as soon as the bar hits zero. Power-ups along the way increase power and time.
