You are Johnny Pallas, the legendary archeologist of Utrera. After your hardest researching job, you finally have found the mystery of the mysteries of ancient Egypt: the secret entrance to the Pharaom Lholha Flowers' chamber.

To get to the entrance, you have to enter in the big pyramid and found all the gems before the time is over. Only when you unearth all the gems, you can take the Ankh and the next chamber will be open.

40 chambers are waiting for you and your shovel before getting to the secret entrance... Are you ready to accept this challenge?

Very nice puzzle game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:43:12. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Tengo las dos versiones, y los dos ordenadores, que puedo decir...??? Píllate las dos!!!

Dos joyas para dos máquinas emblemáticas.

Un "must have" en toda la regla, bueno, dos xD.

I played both versions, Speccy and Amstrad. I don't know which one I like better =)
BUT I would so love to have a port for the MSX :-P

Not in our plans for now.
