[edit] Story

Helping an eccentric archaeologist unearth an ancient tomb in the Desert of Skulls seems like an easy task for a heroic adventurer like YOU. But when that tomb turns out to belong to Akharis ??? a legendary ruler from a previous age ??? and when you discover some of his followers are trying to return the evil pharaoh to life, YOU must act quickly.

Soon you will have to learn the true meaning of the Curse of the Mummy! It will take a real hero to defeat Akharis and win the treasure. Dare YOU take on the challenge?

The player must defeat Akharis, an evil ruler from a former age, before he is resurrected. If the player fails, he will enslave all of Allansia. The player must search for Akharis' tomb in the Desert of Skulls in a race against time.
[edit] Wizard version

The Wizard editions of Curse of the Mummy and Spellbreaker have been revised in order to make them more playable. Several enemies have lower SKILL scores in the Wizard version of this book, however this has resulted in several errors in the text as other numbers that should have been changed as a result of the edits have remained the same. The description of a certain item has also been changed. The Wizard edition of Curse of the Mummy is the second to keep the cover from the original Puffin version.
[edit] Trivia
Curse of the Mummy map

It's impossible to map the flooded maze in Akharis's underground tomb due to the book reference numbers being connected together in an inconsistant manner in order to confuse the player and make navigating this section harder.
[edit] Notes

* The player's encounter with the playwright Cranno in the ruined theater resembles Perseus' first encounter with Ammon in Clash of the Titans.
