This is another of the 'Panic' variation games which involves you in trying to return to your disturbed rest in a pyramid. Ghouls and nasties try to stop you doing so. Control is okay and includes ZX and cursor joystick options. The graphics are not bad, large but a bit on the jerky aide. The oxygen supply is also included in the game. A problem that you can't jump down your own holes and live. Mummy Mummy is an average sort of game - all right, but inferior to some of the more classic ones and not particularly addictive.

I get the feeling that the search for originality in the 'Panic' framework has gone far in Mummy Mummy and obscured with complicated 'gizmos' what might have been a very good version. The large graphics are fair in their movement, but the overall implementation is confusing and the monsters often do some very odd things - like jamming up! It is also quite slow. Playability is lowered by the fact that at certain times you can dig a hole and then all the monsters will line up to drop sedately into it, giving you time, after bonking one through, to dig the next ready for another monster. I didn't like this one at all.
