Synopsis

Plot

For many years, you have heard the rumours about an old temple that belonged to Ramisis. Travellers have told of the curse that lies on the temple and of the mysterious deaths of all who tried to enter it to recover the 'Golden Ikon of Ramisis'. These rumours did not deter you, so you set out to find the ikon for yourself.

You have arrived at the entrance to the temple and sent all your assistants in to search for the ikon, but none have returned. You will now have to venture in by yourself.

Notes

Appears to be a version of the earlier BBC title Pharoah's Curse.

This was published by Argus Specialist Publications as a BASIC type-in listing in Personal Computing Today, vol. 3, no. 6, January 1985, pp. 53–55. The article was titled 'Golden Ikon of Ramesis', but the game itself is titled 'Golden Ikon of Ramisis'. It may also have been published in Games Computing February 1985, but this has not been confirmed.

There is a plagiarised version on some web sites supposedly written by Gary Mottabhoy, but he is not the author.

It has unofficially been ported to the VIC-20 by an unknown author.

The game does NOT appear in "Games Computing" July 1984. That magazine is online at flaxcottage.com

I've deleted that particular reference. Perhaps one day the mythical February 1985 issue will turn up.
