Aztec Challenge (Basic) - A 1982/4 challenging classic re-released but this time in Basic by Steveboy

A double heads up for Monday as we've not only found out about Super Smash Bro's possibly coming to the C64, but thanks to another heads up in our Indie Retro News inbox, we've been told the classic game of 'Aztec Challenge' has been re-released by Steveboy for the C64 but this time developed using Basic. If you've not heard of this game before, it was originally released in 1983 by Paul Norman, and see's your character through seven different dangerous levels such as spear throwing aztecs, climbing dangerous stairs, and the crossing of a deadly bridge.

As noted by the wikipedia for the game : "Aztec Challenge refers to either of two early action video games published by COSMI, as well as two subsequent remakes. In all game versions the player takes control of a running Aztec warrior. The first was a side-scrolling platform-jumping game created by Robert Tegel Bonifacio and released in 1982 for the Atari 8-bit family. Subsequently, a different game with the same title and overall theme was created by Paul Norman and released for the Commodore 64. It includes a level in a modified-first-person 3D-style".
