Mystery of the Mummy

Time Warp, 1991

Originally released for the Amiga Gaming System, this PC adaptation of Mystery of the Mummy casts you as the investigator of a missing mummy in Hamburg, Germany.  You have just five days to gather evidence, follow up leads and question witnesses in order to solve the crime. You can use items and interact with environments as you seek the perpetrator, but the fun is slightly marred by a few annoying action sequences and a cumbersome interface.  Lovers of detective games are urged to overlook these flaws, as the marvelous mystery elements make this one well worth playing.
