O - Oh Mummy! Treasure maze and monsters...

Maze games were hugely abundant after the success of PacMan, so its no surprise one of the release titles from Amstrad's own software house was going to hang on the coat-tails of Mr Man. A grid layout shown in various colour swaps, Oh Mummy has you running around a room (pyramid) a a digger to find the treasure and escape the mummies by circling the tombs. Endlessly playing to the tune of 'The Streets of Cairo', this is a simple game both graphically and in gameplay, but it is weirdly addictive. One of the best Amsoft titles in all honestly, CPC gamers far and wide have most likely played this into the wee hours until the parents said ' bed time now!' to which the response would have been...'Oh Mummy....'

Honourable Mentions - Operation Wolf, Operation Thunderbolt, Outrun.
