Pharaoh’s Curse

After nearly a quarter century, I have beat Pharaoh’s Curse! But, I am getting ahead of myself.

This excerpt was all that was recovered from archive. Pharaoh’s Curse was a game I enjoyed in my youth on a Commodore-64. But, since the game was stored on a cassette tape, it would take forever to load and would often not load on the first attempt. Occassionally, the game would complete its loading in the midst of a family meal blaring the intro sounds throughout the house. My parents would tell me to turn off the game. I never learned to mute the TV while the game was loading. It wasn’t until several years later that I remembered the name of the game, found it on an emulator, and beat it.–Ed.
