> THE GOLDEN PYRAMIDS 2 - The Shadow of Egypt by 64'er

• Completed by Brendan Phoenix
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

As I am sure you all know by now, I LOVE platform games - mainly on the Commodore 64. I can't seem to get enough of them and so when an opportunity comes along where I'm sent a game ending of a platform game I've never played, I'm like a kiddie in a sweetshop!

Unfortunately, on this occasion, the excitement is short-lived. Don't get me wrong - The Golden Pyramids 2 is a nice enough game with it's clean-cut intro, music and graphics... it's just that the gameplay is a little taxing - especially controlling the main character. Plus - with the version I have there doesn't seem to be any instructions and so I'm not quite sure what to do - which may be part of the problem.

Saying all that - it's worth checking out and playing it for yourself. And if you do work out how to go from level to level, then please let me know!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brenda was a little cheat and used a trained version that allowed him to skip straight to the end!

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final level is complete, the ending screen appears, which is a lovely sunset bitmap with the word "CONGRATULATIONS!" On tapping the spacebar, the screen then changes to another bitmap with the epilogue. This is all accompanied by an ending tune.


  • Brendan: The first Golden Pyramids game ending was a Gold Medal winner. Alas, like most sequels, this ending is a bit of a let down - bar the great end music on both screens.

    Where as previously we had a nice scrolling message, credits and some nice parallax effects - here it's just static screen's. The tune's are great though. 6/10.
  • Vinny: It's a nice ending. It could have been bigger and a little more bolder with it's content and implementation, but it's good enough. 6/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: Not familiar with this one, but a fairly impressive ending
  • Gaz Spence: This game exists only in preview form so to have an ending of any sort is a bit of a bonus. The funky tunes, picture and ending dialogue are slick and make an above average conclusion overall.

FINAL SAY: Still worth a look and listen...

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
