Almost a million people had glimpsed his treasures defying the ancient warnings. The curse of the pharaoh is cast upon any person who disturbs the mummy of any pharaoh of ancient Egypt. Over forty years later, the curse of the pharaoh has descended upon City Park’s Scout Island to seek revenge. The ancient Egyptian Temple of Anubis, the God of Death, has risen from the swampy depths of City Park’s lagoons to extract justice for disturbing Tut’s tomb. Explore the lost temple while avoiding traps and snares… Come Face-to-face with snakes, crocodiles, and the-living-dead…Defy the curse of the pharaoh if you dare.
– Stitch’s Body Emporium: This doctor is not a servant of the people. He is a Picasso of blood. Known as Stitch, this dog-faced mad-man fancies himself an artist with a never-ending thirst for blood. His greed of perfection drives him to remake flesh.
