Pharaoh's Tomb  1990

You are Nevada Smith, an archaeologist and adventurer who is exploring an Egyptian pyramid. You can jump and shoot arrows, and there is sometimes hidden treasure in some of the blocks if you hit them from below, like Super Mario. There is no sidescrolling, though. Each level consists of a single, appropriately named room, and there are 20 levels in each episode. There are 4 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.

Episode 1 - Raiders of the Lost Tomb
Episode 2 - Pharaoh's Curse
Episode 3 - Temple of Terror
Episode 4 - Nevada's Revenge
