The Wait is Over!

8 01 2011

Er, actually it was over in 1983, when Parker Brothers finally released Tutankham (no jokes about the name please) to the Atari and Sears home video community after a 3000 year wait.  No kidding.  Gamers could finally give Pac-Man a rest and explore the thrills of this new territory, which according to the ad text, offered the following challenges:
“Tutankham, the video game where you race through a pyramid to find Tut’s treasure.  The game where you’re attacked by the fiendish guardians of the tomb.  And you fight back with your laser guns.  You capture the keys to the treasure room and then the treasure is yours.”
