Rare 1980s Tutankham tabletop electronic game by Bandai, fantastic classic based on the arcade game! This comes from old unsold dealer stock and appears to have barely been played except for demonstration. The game works good and looks minty and is still inside its original plastic bag and with 2 left/right styrofoam pieces and 2 different instructions manuals. The larger instructions are 2 standard pages typewritten in English, while the smaller instructions booklet at first glance appears to be a photocopy. Attery compartment super clean, bottom label and rubber feet very clean which shows it wasn't used much.
The box does has some storage wear, creases, corner bumps, edge wear and minor tears, however there are no price stickers, colors are still bright, all flaps present, sturdy and displays nicely. So not a mint or excellent box, but still very good. Can provide more box photos if requested. This is the orange colored Asahi version, made in Japan for European export and rebranded by Asahi as their first model AKA-001.
The more commonly seen Japanese market version is white in color and has different box illustrations. That other white Japanese version is very rare and can take years to locate a high quality boxed game, however this orange bodied type is even more rare. Bandai Tutankham plays much like the standup arcade version by Konami.
You shoot left and right by firing while moving, the bats move fast and chase you down while you navigate the tomb and collect the map, treasure box, and finally a Tutankham idol. When tested the game works great, however sometimes when the "Flash" bomb button was pressed sometimes it was causing random things on screen (see last photo) and game needed to be restarted. The Flash kills all the bats when they get you surrounded!
We spun the batteries a little and tried again and was able to play a few games normally without Flash bomb causing any issues. Flash bomb is only used sparing when playing, and everything else worked good, and thankfully the Flash bomb did sometimes work but still thought this worth mentioning.
