The Cyclops is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. They are often encountered in pairs.

Description Edit

"These elusive critters shoot a powerful ray of fire from their single eye, and are able to teleport over short distances...When injured, the Cyclops will split into two - double the danger."
Book of Sphinx
"Cute looking but very mischievous."
Monster Inspector
"Named so for its single eye, this biped is capable of charging bolts of fire, teleportation and duplication. Their combination of skin and hair colour has sometimes seen them confused with a certain root vegetable..."
Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

Cyclops resemble radishes, posing as a threat to unsuspecting farmers. They have red bodies and green hair and limbs, and split when struck by a sword. They can shoot laser beams from their single eyes, like the Eye of Ra but less powerful.

These monsters are very agile and teleport away whenever their foe approaches. They will reappear out of their foe's line of sight (usually behind them) and fire a laser beam. If Sphinx manages to get close, but does not strike quickly enough, the Cyclops can backflip away and disappear. Once it has been split in two, the pair will attack simultaneously from different directions in an attempt to confuse Sphinx. They also dissolve into red mist if the player tries to retreat to a safe distance.

Strategy for SphinxEdit

While battling it, it will laugh at you and shoot a laser from its eye. If you get close while it is not moving, it will vanish. You must work quickly in order to eliminate them. On the first hit, they will split into two. Both will begin to flash, and at this point it only takes one more strike to kill them.
