Pharaoh’s Pyramid


Status: No Download, Findability: 2/5

Pharaoh’s Pyramid was a fairly popular game for the Atari in the early 80’s by Master Control Software, and was a rather enjoyable Q-Bert clone. In the advert, it was stated that a Commodore 64 conversion was coming soon … but what happened to it?

Well, the game never surfaced and is now at large. The publisher never seemed to release any other software on the Commodore 64, so maybe they abandoned the platform early on in favour of the Atari?

We don’t know how far it got, but thanks to Bertrand / Atari Frog, we learn that the game was being converted by Randy Platt’s childhood friend at the time, but never quite made it.

It is believed that the conversion was never finished, and it seems unlikely that anything will be found of it – but who knows. Strange things can happen!
