Aztec Antics is a fast-paced, manic, collect-the-gold, single-screen platform game for one-to-six players, which involves jumping on people's (or monsters') heads. After all, how else can you stop them from grabbing the gold? (We tried asking nicely. They said no.)
There are five single-player and ten multiplayer levels, and a furiously angry but enormously cute Quetzalcoatl.
STOMP OR DIE!
In single-player, you are a fearless gold pilferer, in a boxy land where massive gold coins mysteriously appear, one by one. Fortunately, you can athletically bound about to collect them. Less fortunately, the coins are guarded by legions of deadly critters.
Enemies flood in from the top of the screen, hurtle about, and then mysteriously vanish from the bottom, only to reappear at the top, faster and meaner. There's the blind-with-fury Rabid Boar, the unpredictable Aztec Mummy, Aztec god Nagual (in the form of a jaguar who's fond of leaping) and Quetzalcoatl, the god of death and resurrection. Being fearless (or, possibly, crazy), you lack a weapon, and so your only means of attack is to temporarily stun a foe by jumping on its head. Bonk!
STOMP OR... GET LESS GOLD!
In multiplayer, every fearless gold pilferer in the land descends. Cue: a massive scrap for gold and plenty of jumping-on-heads to temporarily stun opponents and secure more treasure. The first to 800 points gets bragging rights at the next Fearless Gold Pilferer Conference!
