Summary: Interesting and under utilised setting setting coupled with a novel combat & upgrading system . However I felt that the entire action side of the game is let down by a really poor control scheme and unresponsive character.
Summary: This is actually a pretty decent game--a nice slow paced casual adventure. It's mostly a platformer game, but includes some basic RPG elements. A unique story with complementary music, very intuitive controls, and a good amount of leveling skills keep it interesting. On the downside, there isn't a whole lot of action, fighting is one dimensional, and casting spells is a little awkward. The sale price is a good bargain--there's definitely 10+ hours of gameplay here.
Summary: Aztaka is visually stunning. From the moment you start it all the way through to the end the beautifully handpainted art stands out. The professionally recorded soundtrack inspired by aztek culture also fits in perfectly. The story isn't too far off from the actual tales and it is fun and captivating. My only gripe with the game are some of the gameplay aspects. mostly relating to hitting enemies and getting hit by them.
Summary: Aztaka is a fun and simple game. It's a 2D side-scrolling / action with few RPG elements. The graphics are awesome and Citeremis's did their research about huitzilopochtli in the Aztec mythology. The game can be a bit hard at some places, but the challenges are usually well rewarded. The new game version is also a lot more well balanced. If you like 2D old-school game, try it its worth the price.
Summary: Aztaka is an indie throwback to the good old side-scrolling action RPG genre. In this gorgeous hand-painted world. Playing Aztaka remember me rpg elements from some old school titles like Zelda 2, Battle of Olympus, well know Castlevania and Diablo. If you're looking for an RPG/Side Scroller, give it a try!
Summary: Explore a fresh universe from Aztec lore, find treasures and equip yourself. Solve puzzles through an innovative hybrid control scheme by manipulating spiritual energy and embark on optional side-quest to acquire valuable items and gold to buy more and more trinkets. This is what you will enjoy in that action/rpg side-scroller hand-painted world.
Summary: Aztaka is some simplified combination of Zelda II, Diablo, and Metroid -- A side-scrolling hack-and-slash with a degree of back-and-forth exploration. The action is fun, if a bit clunky. The various energy types that you can manipulate with mouse add a bit of a puzzle aspect that has a good amount of originality. The gesture-driven magic system makes spellcasting slightly more engaging than it might otherwise be.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If not for its rare but tedious level design bloopers (where you can get stuck for a really long time even when knowing what to do) this game would be much much better. As of now - the story is decent, graphics are pretty, music is also very sweet and calm for the most part, but the frustration that you have not run into since the first Mario tried to jump over a 4-brick high wall is back in this game! Shame!
Summary: If you're a nostalgic one and looking for game that will remember you the classic Super Metroid (Snes), Zelda II (Nes) or Castlevania "Symphony of the night" (Playstation), you should definitely ad this game to your collection!!
