''Tutankham'' is a 1982 dungeon-crawling game by {{Konami}}, licensed in the United States by Creator/SternElectronics. Legend has it that the game was supposed to be titled 'Tutankhamen', but the last two letters didn't fit on the arcade cabinet.

The player explores a tomb to find hidden treasure, while fending off endless waves of enemies with a laser gun which can only fire horizontally. The treasures are a map, a sacred urn, a treasure chest, and King Tut's death mask.

Though not one of Konami's more popular arcade games, it was ported by Parker Brothers to many platforms, including the {{Atari 2600}}, VIC20, {{Intellivision}} and {{Colecovision}}. Parker Brothers also made prototype versions for the {{Odyssey2}}, Atari8BitComputers and TI99 that went unreleased due to TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 that removed them from the video game industry.
