Ultimately, Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is a fun but flawed platformer. The gameplay is mostly enjoyable, until you’ve collected loot from a dozen challenging rooms and then fall in a pit and lose all progress to that point. There are shops where you can buy healing potions, health upgrades, and spare keys, but none of these help with instant-death flames or other hazards. While the adventure held my attention for a little while, eventually the backtracking and repetition wore me down.
There are also steep difficulty spikes that more casual players will struggle with, particularly with some of the more formidable boss fights – some of which specialise in one-hit kill attacks that can be tough to avoid. Nevertheless, Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan is a decent platformer that more than justifies its asking price with impressive longevity and smooth, compelling gameplay.
Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan has great playability, keeping things challenging and allowing you to re-challenge main bosses. It’s just a few glitches that hinder the gameplay and subtract from the experience, yet it still remains extraordinarily fun.
