Tutankham (1984 Version)


Although this version of Tutankham copyrighted 1984, it is actually an earlier WIP version.  There are numerous glitches in the game, the player has infinite lives, and it is missing some features such as the level select.  Oddly, the misaligned stage counter is correct in this version which means it must have been accidentally broken later on in development.  It's also interesting to note that the title screen actually says Tutunkhamun instead of Tutankham.
