Aztec Adventure

By: Sega
Released: 1988

I'll tell you the truth, I haven't yet spent a lot of time with this game, but I will definitely spend more. If only because one of the "weapons" is sacks of money you can use to bribe bad guys to join you. Frankly while I found fighting alongside Covenant as Master Chief in Halo 2 for idealistic reasons very cool, the good old money motivation is fun to play in a game, especially a kids game.

The sprites are large, colorful and cartoonish, which suits this game well. The background map is unexciting and could probably use some better tiles. Controls are responsive, and I didn't have any trouble switching between weapons. The sound is serviceable.

I can't say this game is a must have for the SMS, but if you do have it, it will definitely get some play time.
