Synopsis :

"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.

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan wears its inspiration on its sleeve.  Part Montezuma's Revenge, part Mega Man and part Rick Dangerous, its all awesome!  Developer CollectorVision knows retro, and this is retro-inspired done right. 

Have you played Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan on the VCS?  What do you think about the game?
