Day of the Pharaoh review

"In addition to boring gameplay on all fronts, Day of the Pharaoh wins my vote for this year's prize as the most unfriendly disk juggler. Sometimes you even have to swap disks to learn you've been killed. It's a pity that what could have been a fine game has been ruined by sloppy design and a lack of thought." - Zero Magazine (1989)
