The Pyramid is the remake of an old Spectrum game that was written by Bob Hamilton in 1983. You play an adventurer called Ziggy and it's your goal to reach the bottom of the pyramid to gain all the ancient treasures that are buried there. To archive this goal you have to fight against hundreds of bizarre creatures and monsters. If you do well the guardian will reward you with crystals that will unlock doors, so you can leave and go on to the next level.
The game comes along with four difficulty levels, so it should be playable for all kind of gamers. It can be controlled in four different ways (keyboard, joystick, mouse or single switch) and on the technically side it's nearly flawless (graphics, animations and music are fine).
So if you like retro games and want to revive some gaming experience from your childhood for an hour or two, go and download "The Pyramid". I'm sure you won't regret it!
Scythe : What's fun about this game is picking your way through the huge pyramid, with all the many rooms to enter. Doing it a little differently each time is what gives it longevity. Gameplay itself is not terribly exciting, just your ordinary free floating shooter.
Pater Alf : BTW: This game is winner of the 2006-Retro-Remake-Awards!
A nice little game in which you have to explore and loot a randomly generated dungeon and make it back to the surface alive.

There are three difficulty settings, but you have to unlock them first before you can play them.
There are not that many... (read more)
