Press Quotes

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is a platformer that will remind you of the best platformers out there. If it was not this unknown as a title, you would often hear it being spoken in the same breath as Mario or Kirby.”
– Timmy Adriaens (GamingBoulevard)

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is a game that “excels but exceeds”: as a game in itself it is excellent, and faithfully recreates the typical experience of a first-class NES game , but at the same time exaggerates with zeal with who does it. If Shovel Knight was the Federico Fellini who brought us back to the 8-bit era making it so palatable to please modern palates, Sydney Hunter is the Martin Scorsese who shows it for what it really was.”
– Alessandro Bozzi (icrewplay)

“There isn’t much here to complain about. What players get is a charming, funny, and challenging platform game that feels like a combination between an Indiana Jones like adventure mixed with elements of exploration and Mega Man like gameplay, minus the blaster. It’s a title I absolutely loved digging into and I feel anyone that’s a fan of retro games definitely deserves to check this one out. It’s a hidden treasure for sure.”
– Justin Celani (Saving Content)

Game Description

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.
