Escape From Tut's Tomb is a machine language game that was published in the July and August 1988 issues of Rainbow Magazine, and is loosely based on the arcade hit Tutankham, where one wanders through stone line chambers gathering treasure and shooting monsters that are after you (and are spawned from monster generators). You can move in all 4 directions, but can only shoot left and right, which makes it a challenge. The game is divided into 3 programs, each with 5 screens, but you have to go through them in order (you can't load the 2nd program and start on screen #6, for example). It's one of the better magazine type in games to have come out for the Coco.
