A curse spreads upon the land; could the gods be angry? The elders have sent us to brave the halls of the ancient Aztec temple and find the healing crystal. But the ground is rumbling! It feels like we’re short on time.
Aztec Catacomb is an immersive game set within the playful rendition of an old temple. Add some music and you have a complete environment, even if perhaps not an accurate portrayal. It is a dimly lit room, but the lanterns are bright, and low lighting is never an issue. It is a well-planned atmosphere.
This room features sound construction with lots of good feedback, and is full of gimmicky fun. Everybody has a chance to find secrets, activate ancient mechanisms, and use all their senses.
The puzzles are all well integrated into the game, both in style and theme. They include all the things you’d expect to find in a light-hearted game, like drums, totems, snakes and skulls. The puzzles are all on the easier side, with the room’s focus more on adventure than deep thinking.
It’s a fun game for a group of four, from beginners to experienced players. And don’t forget to order the special Aztec cocktail — available only to those brave enough to search for the healing crystal.
