Coming from developers CollectorVision Games, they behind Dead Tomb which we’ve just reviewed, Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is an 8-bit action-adventure platformer game out on Xbox and PlayStation now.

Trapped!

In a storyline steeped in Mayan mythology, players take on the role of supreme adventurer Sydney Hunter. 

The explorer finds himself trapped inside a massive Mayan pyramid. And to add to this bad luck, he soon discovers that the sacred Haab calendar has been broken up into seven pieces by the “Feathered Serpent” Kukulkan. 

Your job is to find the missing pieces and return peace and balance to the world.

Forge alliances, face challenges

With the aid of the local Mayan population, Sydney Hunter must muster all his courage and skill to overcome the challenges that lie ahead. Join forces with allies, battle fierce adversaries, and confront the powerful Kukulkan in a thrilling showdown for the fate of the world. 

Two unique endings await you, depending on the decisions you make in the game.

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan includes a hidden interactive feature within the Mayan pyramid. If lucky, eagle-eyed players will discover a hidden area and meet Yuki. Yuki is a fun character from FX Unit Yuki: The Henshin Engine.

Game description

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is a love-letter to 8-bit action adventure games with challenging platformer gameplay and a huge number of Maya-inspired bosses. 

You play as Sydney Hunter, adventure supreme, who by sheer luck manages to get trapped inside a massive Maya pyramid. He soon discovers that the “Feathered Serpent” Kukulkan has broken up the sacred Haab calendar into seven individual pieces and has hidden them inside the very same pyramid! 

Widespread chaos and a time freeze will certainly follow if the Haab calendar isn’t located and put back together. With the support of the local Maya population, Sydney Hunter must now find all seven pieces of the Haab calendar, defeat Kukulkan, and return peace and balance in the Maya civilization.
