3 Skulls of the Toltecs

aka: 3 Czaszki Tolteków, Las 3 calaveras de los toltecas, Le Trésor des Toltèques, Tři lebky Toltéků

Description official descriptions

Fenimore Fillmore happens to rescue an old peddler being attacked by some rustlers, but it is also him who accidentally leads the old man to his death by passing him the hair lotion. Just a few minutes before his death, the peddler revealed that he owned one of three skulls that will unlock the treasure of the Toltecs. Fenimore takes hold of the skull, but is then shot by the rustlers and passes out, with the skull going to the hands of the rustlers. When he regains consciousness, he sets out to recover all three and unearth the treasure himself. And of course, beside Fenimore, some other people are also searching for these skulls...

3 Skulls of the Toltecs is a 3rd person cartoon adventure game in the same vein as The Secret of Monkey Island. The interface is point-and-click, and the player is given a list of verbs to select from to perform actions: open, close, pick up/give, use, look, move, talk, similar to the LucasArts games it emulates. Once a certain portion of the territory has been covered a map becomes available for travel, or the player can ride the train tracks with a hand-pumped trolley or travel by donkey. Puzzles are inventory-based, and the player must talk to other characters in the game and collect items in order to solve them. In many conversations, players are given multiple choices of what Fenimore will respond. Players' choice largely affects their process in the game.

Fenimore Fillmore

Fenimore Fillmore is ambidextrous - at least the one featured in this game.


In the Indian village, during the conversation, the Indian chief quotes Fenimore's saying as: "Young paleface speaks like witch-doctor". It is an error since "witch-doctor" is the word referring to the person curing people with magic among Africans, not Native Americans. The correct word must be "medicine man".


In the Indian Village, inside the tent on the far left side of the village where an Apache guards and won't let you in until you give him a "Nyaca Nyaca", you will be requested to smoke the pipe of peace. When people in the tent take turn to smoke, a warning will appear: "The authorities warn that tobacco can seriously harm your health."

Windows version

The Window version is very hard to find nowadays and some of the rare copies were sold in the past for several hundred dollars on Ebay. The price is still increasing and there are currently (as of 2018) on sealed versions of the game available on Amazon for $6,449 and used versions for $999.
