    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. Expand

    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!

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Expand

    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. Aztaka is nothing particularly special, but it's solid, and it's fun, and fairly priced at $10 on Steam. Expand

    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! Getting stuck in one place for an hour trying to jump over a crevice is not my idea of fun... RPG element is nice - you gain XPs and distribute them among different skill - development tree could use some Info though - rarely do you know what you are investing a point into. The Map is confusing with the names of the locations becoming absurdly disorienting with each new location. And the description of Quests is vague - if you get stuck, don't even think of opening your quest log to see where to go next - it's not going to tell you! :( The game is also pretty short. But considering it's Citeremis's first title - i must give it a bow of respect and hope they will continue to improve in Gaming Design. Expand
