You are Vietnam war veteran Bret Conrad, who becomes an adventurer. Go everywhere on the world, find gold, walk into the jungle... One day, you receive an old map about the lost city of Quetzacotl, and its cache of gold. You prepare your bag, gun, knife and let's go to the adventure!

In gameplay Gold of the Aztecs is similar to Psygnosis' Barbarian, and you must go screen by screen to finish it. Over 140 main character movements are included. There are traps at each screen like stones or dangerous bridges.
