"Back To Aztec" is a remake of the pre-1985 game "Aztec", manufactured by Datamost, Inc. (I don't know the names of the actual programmers). It was available for Apple II series computers in 1982, and also (apparently, although I never played the game on these systems) Atari (year?) and Commodore 64 (1983). Obviously inspired by the 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark", it made Compute!s 1985 book "The Greatest Games", ironically subtitled "The 93 Best Computer Games of All Time", by Dan Gutman and Shay Addams. It appears that they were going for quality, and not quantity, in their book, because it would have been easy to make it an even 100 -- only 7 more games! Interestingly, the Game was in the "Strange Brew: Off-the-Wall" section of the book, meaning that it wasn't your standard game. I'd probably place it in the Action-Adventure category.
In his quest to find the Golden Burial Mask of Itzcoatl, Professor Von Forster enters the Burial Pyramid of Itzcoatl. He is never seen again. Now the duty falls on you, an intrepid explorer, to enter the pyramid, find out what happened to Professor Von Forster, and retrieve the Golden Burial Mask.
