Pharaoh Phobia is a funny online platform game for kids (that you need Adobe Shockwave Player to play) where you have to guide Courage, the Cowardly Dog, through an ancient Egyptian pyramid in order to rescue his owners who are trapped at the top. The only problem is that Courage gets scared by absolutely everything! He is the most cowardly dog in the world, so you have to make sure you keep him calm as you navigate through the creepy pyramid.
Avoid skeletons, mummies and other scary stuff to keep Courage calm enough to survive and rescue his owners so they can all get out of there! This cute and hilarious cartoon adventure will have you laughing all the way. It’s pretty tricky though, as Courage is difficult to control – probably owing to the fact he is almost paralyzed with fear! Test your quick reactions as you maneuver him through each challenging pyramid level. Think you can help this petrified little pet escape? Good luck!
How to Play: Control Courage using your Arrow Keys. Use the Left and Right Arrows to move him. Hit the Up Arrow to jump, and the Down Arrow to slide along his belly. You start at the bottom of the pyramid, and have to work your way up through 10 increasingly difficult levels. Jump over ravines and be careful of collapsing floor stones. Hit the Up Arrow at the same time as a direction Arrow to jump over the drops. If you fall down one, you lose a life. Use his sliding button to get under small gaps.
Collect Power-ups like Keys and other artifacts to help him along the way. Keep an eye on Courage’s Scare Meter along the bottom of the game screen. Every time something spooks him, it fills up a little bit. If it fills up all the way, you lose a life. You can see how many lives you have remaining in the bottom right-hand corner of the game screen. Once all of your lives are gone, it’s game over and you have to start again.
Tip: Try to avoid anything that you know will spook Courage. Certain Power-ups calm him down and reduce his Scare Meter.
