Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a cult classic that stretches the definition of “cult classic.” Not because it isn’t excellent, but because a cult has to have somebody in it. The Egypt-set forgotten gem combines mythology and history for two equally compelling, intertwining halves. Sphinx is an action-platform hero while the Mummy is adept at solving puzzles, with an unfeeling body you’ll burn, shock and flatten along the way. This rezzed up Switch version smooths out the textures, but leaves the core intact, which is an expertly paced action platformer unfortunately lost among the sands of time.
