Always interested in things Azteca, I wondered how video games are influenced by the Aztecs. Not surprisingly, the Aztec Mystique is alive and well for video gaming. These Aztec games will not be part of the Azteca Theater offerings. However, I hope you find them amusing. I especially enjoyed the graphics for the first game which reminded me of Tomb Raider and the Aztec background music from the second.
Hunting for lost Azteca treasure is an adventurous theme inspiring a number of video slot games. Giant temples, sacrificial rites, Aztec Kings, beautiful Aztec women, headdresses, masks and gold treasure add excitement from the Empire of the Aztecs.
People wager real money at casinos on these games in hopes that the Aztec gods will smile fortune upon them. However, no need to wager money to try them. Two of these games can be played for free online.
