So you've heard of Lady Gaga, right? Well long
before the days for Bad Romance and Poker Face, there
was another Lady in the form of a Commodore 64 computer
game by the name of Lady Tut.
I'd never played or heard
of this game before, and it wasn't until the ending was
kindly sent in by Neil and Chris Rubio, that I bothered loading it
up from Gamebase64. And what a cool little game it is!
It's a maze/puzzler that I found incredibly addictive
and just couldn't stop myself from having 'one final
go'. Okay - so the graphics aren't spectacular, and the sonix are seriously dire, but remember, this game was
released in 1983 and so it was never going to dazzle us.
It's still a bloody good game... so what of the ending?
Neil: Lady Tut by
Progame is a decent clone of the Arcade game Tutankhamun.
The graphics are neat and colourful, and the gameplay is
quite simple and enjoyable. You have to work your way
through the 10 tombs, collecting treasure and keys on
the way whilst avoiding the various nasties. You can
fire at the enemies once you have collected enough
treasure which builds up you shots. It's not one of the
best games on the C64, but it's a decent version of a
classic that's great fun to play...
The tomb is finally
...and our hero's
quest is drawing to an end.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I'm not too sure how Chris completed it, but I have
a trainer version that allows me to select infinite
live. You know you've got to when it offered! ;-) Neil
completed it using an infinite lives cheat too.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The final level is quite tricky. There are a few doors
to unlock and some of the enemies start to become
invisible - which is a pain. If you manage to unlock all
the doors, you gain access to the tomb of lady
Tutankhamen. A large sprite of a pharaoh's head is
displayed as the final door opens before an end screen
is shown. The final screen shows the sarcophagus of Lady
Tut with hieroglyphics displayed on the tomb walls.
