But this time it is to save the people of Egypt who are being mummified by some miscreants. You play the role of an underdog operations specialist who on the mission to unearth the mystery surrounding the city of Karnak in Egypt. The town has been sealed from rest of the world and it is now up to you to find out who or what is the power behind all the chaos. The only information you have is about the stolen mummy of Pharoah Ramses which was informed by a villager who managed to escape. You are also informed about how the villagers are being mummified and other mummies in Egypt are being tried to bring back to life by the miscreants. The game involves a lot of shoot and fights and adding sparkle to the ensemble is the use of real-world weapons including an M machine gun, hand grenades, and a flamethrower. In order to kill the enemies, the player has to go through a lot of jumps and leaps.

A hostile alien force has invaded Karnak, and a special forces team was sent in to investigate.
For every Quake and Doom we had to suffer through several dozen budget shooters scraping the bottom of the barrel. Driven by an older version of the Build Engine powering Duke Nukem 3D , PowerSlave ironically seems too deeply rooted in the console mindset. The game was developed for the PC alongside its Sega Saturn counterpart, which might help explain the otherwise inexplicable lack of a savegame feature. Consider the lack of a crosshair or auto-run feature. Best part is how the mouse is fixed to the horizontal axis, and vertical mouselook can only be enabled temporarily by holding down a special key, but which inexplicably locks as you start moving in any direction so you have to sit still, AND hold a key down, AND perform a Russian folk duet, just to freely look around you — pure bonkers. Even the most incompetent game tester can call out these restrictions for their insanity. While they might work on a console, here they serve no other purpose than to annoy the player, and their negative effects on gameplay are evident.
Wake up, Saturn owners: rub your sleepy eyes and rejoice, because you finally have a 3D shooter that looks better than anything on the PlayStation. Yes, sir. Powerslave is the name of the game, and it comes from the good or perhaps evil people at PlayMates. Original it's not. The good news is that, original or not, this is one of the most enjoyable Doom clones ever made, not to mention a darned good title in its own right.
