This obscure Mac exclusive is remarkably similar to one of the platform's all-time classics, which it actually predates by two years. In grid-based first-person 3D, you automap downward through a pyramid... collecting treasure, fending off vermin (plus supernatural guardians), and seeking a cursed magical artifact. Pyramid's most notable distinction is its arcade-style combat — and that it isn't nearly as playable or fun as its successor.

This archive contains version 1.00 in English, and version 2.00 (a major overhaul) in French. We now seek an English copy of version 2.00.

Impressively, the game was "designed, programmed, duplicated and packaged" in just 30 days. "I fondly recall heat shrinking boxes the night before the first MacWorld show in 1985," Volk laughs.
