Watch out for the Mummies.
There’s a lot of Mummies!!

– Drop a Bomb

How not to Lose

Don’t let the Mummies catch you.
Oh, and don’t blow yourself up!

What I didn’t do/Possible Improvements

Different enemy types seemed somewhat redundant. They wouldn’t have added anything except for a graphical difference. The game’s hard enough trying to dodge all the Mummies, and they’re all too dumb to be anything too dangerous!
Powerups might’ve helped, but I’m quite happy with the way this turned out, without the need for any powerups.

Slight discrepancy with the week numbering there!!
I’m not sure when it went out of sync with the real-world week number, but ..
Never mind.. Ignore the numbers and enjoy the game.

    “Disco Bert and the Curse of the Evil Mummies”
    Title: The effect used for the title makes it looks like it is etched in the sand. Nicely done. The Sand and mummies go together.

    Gameplay: A more relaxed game with multiple levels compared to the last 2 games. Can be played for a good amount of time. Once the initial set of mummies are taken care of, player can focus of breaking the brick walls and unlocking the boxes and start hunting for the key. At first I didn’t realize that I had to run around the boxes and enable to buttons. I was blasting a bomb on each button and wondering why I was not getting the key. Then after seeing the second screenshot where all the buttons are enabled and box is unlocked, I understood. Killing all the mummies in unlocked boxes before they wake up is a good for not getting killed early. Random timer of the bomb and only one bomb at a time makes player use the bomb wisely. Good care has been taken to avoid the scenarios where player is unable to unlock the boxes and get the key, as running around the boxes and enabling the buttons is tricky in few cases where the key is not present (Thanks to Quadoban level generator I guess).

    Graphics: Left and right movement of the player character gives the disco movement to fit the title. Both Elvis like player sprite and the mummy sprite has come out well. Blast effect is awesome. Liked the bomb animation along with the sound effect.

    Scoring: 25 Points per mummy, 5 points per tile of the box and 150 per level is well balanced.

    Music and Sound: A totally different background score, medium paced with repeating melody in between seems to match the pace of the game. Liked the mummies dying sound effect. The sound effect for bomb varying per the timer interval is done very well.

    Overall a very enjoyable game with cool graphics and a solid gameplay.
