Adventure of Cleopatra's Pyramid, The (Adventure_of_Cleopatras_Pyramid.txt)

´╗┐Walkthrough: 
 
You start outside your tent. Go tent, drop radio (you will need that 
later), get flashlight, get canteen, S, W, get candybar, S, get scepter, 
N, E, get pouch, E, fill pouch, sand, N, E, N, E, drop candybar, get 
crowbar, E, E, N, look pyramid, go pyramid, light flashlight, D, E, E, E, 
*quicksave here* 
 
Explanation to the mummy-problem in the maze: 
 
When you go up from here, you enter the realm of the roaming mummy, which 
does 1 of 4 different things, randomly. 
 
Takes your whole inventory except the flashlight, and spreads the items 
across the maze. 
Says: "Go back where you came from!" 
Says: "Leave things alone! 
Or does nothing. 
 
If the mummy isn't in the entrance, look (i.e. wait) for it to arrive. 
Then wave scepter, and make one move at a time, to the next location. 
Then repeat, until you are out of the area. If you go to a location where 
the mummy is, you risk losing your inventory, which makes the game almost 
impossible to win, as you have to conserve battery power, food and water, 
and can't waste too many moves looking for the stuff the mummy 
confiscates. 
 
Moving on from quicksaved position: 
 
U (if the mummy is here, and it takes your inventory, quickload the old 
position, and if it is not, look until mummy arrives, then wave scepter, 
et cetera, move by move). After quickload, look once, before U, and then 
the mummy shouldn't be there. 
 
Look (until mummy arrives/uma), wave scepter, E, look (uma), wave 
scepter, S, look (uma), wave scepter, S, look (uma), wave scepter, E, 
look (uma), wave scepter, E, look (uma), 
 
Sometimes you can just walk to the desired location, and you need to go 
at it trial-and-error, and save position when you make some progress. 
This goes for the rest of the game, in the maze.

you get to the room with the hole in the wall. *quicksave*.

scepter, drop backpack (now the mummy cannot take any items), U, E, S, S,

This old-school game has too much randomization, and unless there is a 
permanent way of stopping the mummy, it's close to unplayable. Too little 
margin for error. The mess in the maze ruins the game. Cleopatra's mummy 
is like the thief in Zork 1, or the parrot in Return to Eden, on 
steroids. I couldn't have beaten this one without the quicksave-function 
on the emulator.
