Maxis Fall/Winter 1996 Catalog:
    You're a young Aztec with a mission: find a magical crystal skull. (Don't worry, all that's at stake in the future of the empire.) Of course, there are obstacles in your way - hideous monsters and supernatural creatures, for starters. But luckily you've got a spirit guide (in the person of acclaimed actor Edward James Olmos). And did we mention the hundreds of live action scenes, 3-D rendered environments, and 50 engaging characters based on Aztec and Mayan mythology?
