1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


Aztec Tomb is an adventure game that was made by Alligata Software in 1983. The
aim is to find the entrance to an Aztec tomb. Along the way, you will need to
escape a house, avoid an elephant, cross a river and explore an island trying
to find the Aztec tomb. The main problem with the game is the badly designed
parser which only accepts a few words. Oddly, you also need to look at a room
before items in it appear, so without knowing this it is quite possible to miss
some important items. The game lacks detailed room descriptions and there are
many spelling mistakes, giving it a rushed feel. Aztec Tomb has too many faults
to be good, although it is still a fairly entertaining adventure to play.
