The Mummy, known in Japan as Hamunaptra: Ushinawareta Sabaku no Miyako (ハムナプトラ 〜失われた砂漠の都〜, Hamunaputora 〜Ushinawareta Sabaku no Miyako〜, lit. "Hamunaptra: The Capital City of the Lost Desert"), is a single-player video game for Game Boy Color, PlayStation and Microsoft Windows, based on the 1999 movie of the same name. It was published by Konami.

Dreamcast version was planned and even advertised, but was cancelled for unknown reasons.[1][2] The game was followed by The Mummy Returns in 2001, and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008.

Reception[edit]

The PlayStation version received "mixed" reviews, while the PC version received "generally unfavorable reviews", according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[20][21] David Chen of NextGen said that the former version was "a lot better than we could have expected – still not great, but not at all bad".[14] In Japan, Famitsu gave the same console version a score of 27 out of 40.[6] Nintendo Power gave the Game Boy Color version a mixed review, over a month before it was released Stateside.[15]
