1. Atari Bytes: Tutankham


Seriously. Do it. Do it now.

Okay, sit down, you look ridiculous.

This week on the podcast, we have a 1983 Parker Bros. game about looting ancient Egyptian ruler King Tut’s tomb. The game is called TUTANKHAM, and is apparently so good, you won’t have time to put the last “en” on the name before you must rush off to play it.

Do we agree? More importantly, what stories has the mysterious ancient tomb left to tell?

Thanks to Kevin McLeod at Incompetech.com for creative commons use of his songs “Take a Chance”, “Reformat” and “Pinball Spring”.
