A frustratingly unfair Egyptian scott adams game, June 5, 2017

This game is a pure treasure hunt, with 13 different treasures to find and gather in a central location; this is in contrast to Secret Mission, The Count, and Mystery Fun House, which appeared before this game.

This game is really unfair; you have to repeat actions, destroy important-seeming things, etc.

However, it matches the genre well; pyramids are supposed to be filled with unfair death traps.

Overall, though, this is still a good game.

Solved without Hints by joncgoodwin
I'm very interested in hearing truthful accounts of at least somewhat difficult games (or games that don't solve themselves at least) solved completely without recourse to hints, walkthroughs, etc.
