Aztec Challenge: Portable Remake for PC

I wonder if there are readers who remember this great game, Aztec Challenge. I invested most of my teenage years playing this game on the Commodore 64 and managed to complete all the levels once – one of my greatest accomplishments! I have been looking for a PC version of Aztec Challenge for ages and I happen to have found one today!

You start off running the gauntlet of spear throwers – avoid the spears by jumping and ducking with the UP and DOWN arrow keys – who are trying to thwart your escape from slavery. The pyramid gets closer and closer, but if you get hit you have to start the level all over!

I don’t know if all the levels are there (I’m a little out of practice and can’t seem to get past the first level!! *blushes*) but it’s a completely portable version of the game with modern graphics. Neat! It doesn’t save high scores though. I still wish I could find a full screen PC version with the original look. Playing in the small VICE emulator window just doesn’t have the same effect.
