The Scorpion King: Sword of Osiris is an action platformer developed by WayForward Technologies and published by Universal Interactive for Game Boy Advance.
Players take control of Mathayus and try to rescue his wife, Cassandra who was kidnapped by King Menthu and Osiris. In order to defeat the evil Menthu and Osiris players need to collect gems for the Hero's Gauntlet. The Hero's Gauntlet is a wrist strap that can grant the wearer incredible power and strength. Players will traverse through six worlds to collect these gems and rescue Cassandra.
Scorpion King plays out like a simple action and platform game. Players fight different enemies with the use of a sword and scimitars. Each weapon is needed to complete the game because they each have their own abilities. The abilities are done by holding the attack button to charge the weapon powers.
The game also has many platform elements with many of the obstacles common in a platformer such as spikes and pits to avoid. Players are also given a wall jump ability that could help move through levels and find secret areas. Each a of the six worlds has a boss to battle, but the gameplay remains the same in these encounters. After each boss is defeated, players will be awarded one of the gems for the Hero's Gauntlet.
Aside from the main game there is also a side quest that players can choose to complete. This quest allows players to search for secret passages with in levels that will lead to a transporter. Once transported, players will progress through platform heavy levels. At the end of each level players will be awarded an emblem. These do not need to be found in order to complete the game. Finding these will allow players to play the game again as Mathayus's wife, Cassandra.
