A fun old gem
Made in the early 1984, Montezuma's Revenge is one of the first platform game ever, Montezuma's Return
being the game's sequel. In this game, you control a character called Panama Joe and you are in the underground of the 16th century temple of the Astec Emperor Montezuma II. You go from room to room, collecting jewels and killing enemies and the objective is to score the highest score. The gameplay is tipical for a platform game. You go up and down ladders or jump from platform to platform while looking for keys to open doors, collect and use equipment such as torches, swords, amulets, etc., and avoid or defeat the challenges in his path. You have 99 rooms to explore, so you'll get at least a few hours of fun. The graphics are very poor, but since we're talking about the early eighties, they're great for that time. There is no music, only blips and other similar sounds when you collect an item or kill an enemy. But nevertheless, the game is ultra fun and great for those hardcore old games fans.
