We're back. Last week's Fuzzy Memory mysery was such an astounding success that we've received another request from someone seeking resolution of their distant childhood gaming memories. I'm not a fount of infinite knowledge, so like always, I need the adept VC&G readership to help solve the mystery.
Spirits of Ancient Egypt
Julia, from Australia, wrote me a few days ago regarding an electronic handheld game from her past:
I'm hoping you can help me locate a game I played when I was a child. I live in South Australia. The game was a handheld game made around 1981 with a lcd screen. The name Tutankhamen comes to mind but it may have been called something else, but I'm pretty sure it had an Egyptian theme. I don't remember how the game was played, I only remember what it looks like. It may have been red in colour, small between 10-20cm wide an I recall it had a little black stand attached to the bottom of it. I think it was modelled after the 2 player tabletop arcade games except a mini version.
Your help would be much appreciated!
