The Desert theme features a lot of Egyptian imagery, such as the sphinx in the splash screen on the right, and pyramid-shaped and ditto named levels. The levels go almost exclusively in yellow (desert background and outside areas) and blue (sky background and inside areas), giving them a unique atmosphere.
Compared to some other themes, Desert levels are relatively dangerous with many of the game's strongest enemies appearing frequently in them, notable examples are Scorpions and Drillers while Clouds, UFOs and Goats also make an appereance.
List of Desert levelsEdit
The following levels carry the Desert theme:
This is the theme with the least levels lieing on the main path: only Pyramids of Peril is a level you must visit without taking a bridge or similar shortcuts, and only three Desert levels are not Elsewheres at all.
- The Master System version of the Desert level's music had a couple added instruments.
