Fans of endless runner games will enjoy Escape from Aztec, one of the latest games we have created using HTML5 technology.
You may recall from your middle school lessons that the Aztecs were one of the greatest Mesoamerican civilizations. They had a very rich culture where agriculture, literature, and the arts flourished.
However, they were also known to have practiced some pretty gruesome human sacrifice rituals.
And that’s probably why our guy in Escape from Aztec is running for his life. He has just stolen King Aztec’s great treasure!
The guy we have just mentioned is an explorer of sorts who looks like he has a penchant for going on dangerous adventures.
So now we find him running on an endless path in the ruins lorded over by a mysterious king hidden in a dark jungle. You'll hear this monarch’s menacing laughter in the background every time our guy dies.
You have to help your character navigate the treacherous path, which is riddled with holes, boulders, and barriers. To do this, use the arrow buttons on your keyboard. (For mobile devices, you tap or flick on the screen instead).
A short tutorial is provided at the start of the game, and you have the option to turn it on or off.
The arrow buttons perform the following actions:
As the game progresses, the running speed also increases, which makes it more challenging to avoid the hurdles.
The game is over when you run out of lives. You are shown how many coins you have collected and meters you have traveled in that particular run. If you want to view your lifetime stats, you can access them from the menu screen.
Along the way, you collect coins and power-ups. Below are the power-ups and how they affect your abilities:
The first three powerups last for a certain time period only. You can use coins to buy upgrades for these powerups in the store.
Double coin icon on the upper right means each coin collected is equivalent to two.
Jump to get the invincibility power-up up ahead! When invincibility is activated, the character is will glow bluish.
An extra life means you don’t die when you hit barriers and boulders or trip over holes on the ground. In the example above, the character has hit a barrier, knocking it out of the way. He has lost an extra life in the process, but can still continue running.
You can upgrade the various power-ups by using coins in the store.
We employ a game engine that runs on HTML5 technology. This means that all our games are cross-platform, i.e. they work well across different devices and operating systems. A single build of a game can be deployed on any device with a web browser, where our games can be instantly playable without the need for downloading any apps or plugins.
