Oh same, but Amiga Action

Although Amiga Format sometimes too, the coverdisks were often treasure troves of little programs. There is one from the early 90's that I have not yet been able to find, there was a little PD run & gunner game on it which was a dude running around in a pyramid zapping things. It had a very obvious egyptian-themed name, but I just can't remember it.

No, but good guess. Levels (or "the level", never got far enough to see if there were multiple levels) were multiscreen. Now I've done it, I'm going to do a new dig for it because I must play it again.

EDIT: Pharao's Curse comes really close, but I don't think it is the game.

Unfortunately no x2; sorry for the late response, it's hard to keep track of these threads

My memory definitely has failed me, I thought it was on an Amiga Power coverdisk but I've gone through the lot and there really is no such thing. I'll go through old Amiga Action coverdisks too, but it must have been on some compilation disk that we got at the time. There are actually more games which I have not been able to source yet that must have come from a similar source.

Alright, I've been wasting time here. Based on this video:

I can almost positively say that Pharao's Curse actually is the game I was looking for. The color scheme (red + yellow) in that video matches exactly what I have in my memory and the title tune also sounds awfully familiar.
