Originally released by Parker Brother's, Montezuma's Revenge was a unique title that had the player exploring tombs for treasure while avoiding rolling skulls and jumping over snakes. The game also had you searching for keys of different colors to unlock doors (i.e. a red door would require a red key, etc.). Midnight Mansion uses the same formula, but it expands the basic premise by adding a plethora of extras."
