Default [Megaten] Secrets of the Pyramids

Skip down for the details. I remember playing a demo of this game. I think I got the demo from a Broderbund game, a The Learning Company game (I had a fewof the SuperSolver games),or possibly with Museum Madness? I can't remember. The reason I thought it was with a kids game cause this one was violent, and remember being shocked that it was offered alongside kid games. I checked Moby and Underdogs for TLC's and Broderbunds catalouge but didnt see anything similar.

Published in mid 90's I think. Point and click adventure. You were an Indiana Jones explorer type and were in a cave.... maybe a pyramid? I remember lots of brown in the environment and the character. I remember being faced with a few doors, and the game was VERY trial and error, cause one door had me tumbling to the next screen and breaking my neck, and the other sent me into a room where I was killed by vampire bats, and there was blood (shocking when this was bundled with a kids game :P). So eazy to die. I'd like to try it again now that I'm mature :P

That's all I got. I JUST remembered that it COULD have been a pyramid and not a cave, so I'm gonna search for egyptian themed adventure games. Thanks much.

It sounds like Montezuma's Return



EDIT: damn Juanca but yeah it's most likely that game.

Unfortunately It's none of these. Thank you for trying everyone, genuinely.

It was not 3D or first person. It was reminiscent of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (but not it of course. Or Prisoner Of Ice).

OMG, I've been looking to remember that game's name for AGES! I had some memories of it, but when you mentioned the broken neck and bats bites I remembered that! I posted on other forums to try to find this game, look (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/foru...e=174#16564380)! I will update with your info, maybe then we can recover the game's name!

Sorry, I am so excited someone remembers that! LOL!

Oh my god.
You're my hero. You're my FECKIN' HERO! HAVE ALL THE INTERNETS, sir!

I can't believe, it's been so many years... *sob

Hey, you think you could help me with another one?
Here: Some kind of first person shooter in space/ spaceship (kinda reminds me of Doom). I can't remember a lot, but there were aliens everywhere and almost no human being. I remember something about colors? I don't know why, colors seemed important. I vaguely remember opening doors, very Doom-like, actually. It's so damn blurry I really can't remember anything else about it.
