Imhotep is a video game for the Commodore 64 released by Ultimate Play The Game in 1985. Although published by Ultimate, it was developed by an independent programmer, Manuel Caballero, over a period of ten months.[2] Unlike earlier arcade adventure titles such as The Staff of Karnath or Entombed it is a straightforward shooter game, with an Ancient Egypt theme.

Imhotep is also the name of an unrelated video game for the TRS-80. Players attempted to build Djoser's step pyramid by allocating resources to materials and labor. Each turn a step was built, but the likelihood of a collapse also increased.
