Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a fairly solid platformer that was largely ignored upon release, only to later be labeled as a hidden gem.

To do:
There's some debug info unlocked through cheats in the GameCube version. See if that also applies here.

Regional Differences

In the US version of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, one of the monsters necessary for the Collection Sidequest, the Smiling Burble, can easily become gone for good. It only appears twice. If you don't catch it during one of these appearances, you won't be able to, and thus can't get 100% Completion. The European version, however, has the monster in the late dungeon respawn.
