Runs on:
Notes: The game comes on one 5 1/4" disk for Atari 400/800 and includes a fold-out instruction sheet (2 pages) are all that's included (unless you count another brochure to get your own software published).

Package blurb:

The Sands of Egypt is an action adventure starring you in the role of Lord Charles Buckingham III, the world-famous British explorer. Attacked by nomads while on an archeology (sic) expedition to Egypt, Lord Charles was knocked unconscious and is now hopelessly lost in the fabled land of the Pharaohs. As the drama unfolds, we find him wandering in the wilderness alone. He carries nothing but a compass, his courage, and his wits.

As the star, you'll encounter the blistering heat of the barren sands and experience the ecstasy of a desert oasis. Take a rest under the shade of a date palm and enjoy the elixir of life: Water. Continuing the search, you'll risk all to find the secret treasure concealed within the lost pyramid.
