Advertised in Home Computer Weekly, issue 85 – Aztec was an interesting looking 3D adventure game which was to be released on the likes of the Spectrum and also the Commodore 64. You would use the keys to turn around 360 degrees and move around a 10×10 grid layout.
As an Aztec, it is your aim to find the sun which hasn’t risen over your village on this particular day. As you move around the environment, you have a number of spells at your disposal which the game’s manual details how to use. The game overall was aimed to be a childrens adventure game, more than something for adults.
It is very likely the screenshot in the advert is from the Spectrum version. It seems that Hill MacGibbon didn’t get that much released onto the C64, so maybe they struggled with that platform overall getting suitable developers.
Do you know what happened to it?
