About this item

In Mummy, you play a representative of a mining corporation, sent to an Egyptian site to deal with the revolt of workers, who, ever since the discovery of a hieroglyph-covered box, fear a curse lies over the mining site. With very minor changes, the navigation scheme here is the one from Frankenstein, and the integration of the full-motion actors with the computer-generated backgrounds is just as smooth and seamless (although the acting, with the exception of Malcolm McDowell, has turned out quite a bit worse). You'll spend your first game-scale day navigating the desert camp, making acquaintances, and being followed around by the nosy and subtly threatening McDowell, who doesn' like you very much.

The static-frame navigation from the first game (for such is the way I cannot help thinking of Frankenstein and Mummy as the "first game" and the "second game") makes a little more intuitive sense, due largely to the much more rectilinear layout of the hangars and barracks of the campsite. Mummy's puzzle-solving elements - including such tasks as repairing electrical wiring, going behind people's backs to swipe confidential data, and locating secret doors hidden since the WWII heyday of the Nazi base the campsite was constructed on - are definitely not brain-benders in themselves, but a certain amount of common sense is required; you will occasionally find yourself "solving" a puzzle only to find that it won't do you any good until you've discovered a critical clincher.

From the Manufacturer: Deep below a mining site in Alexandria, Egypt, ancient tombs remained buried for centuries. Suddenly, chaos grips the mining site. The miners refuse to work for fear the mine is cursed. As an agent of the National Mining Company, you are sent to investigate the miners' suspicions. Now it's your mission to guard the Pharaoh's tombs, their secret treasures and your life! Solve over 50 hair-raising puzzles and outsmart the relentless Stuart Davenport as you explore over 50 different mystical locations.
