The game consists of three episodes, each with many rooms. The episodes are:

- Episode Three: Jewel Of The Yucatan
Episode One was released as shareware while the other two episodes were purchased together or separately. The player could also, for an additional fee, purchase the sixty page game solution which allegedly answers such questions as "How do I become bald in Episode One?", and "Where is the Emerald City?".
The game also has many built in cheat codes which were available on purchase or on request.

Easter eggsThere are four secret warp levels in episode three of Paganitzu. Two of them are actually Chagunitzu levels copied over. Keith Schuler implemented those as a sort of easter egg, but he never told the guys at Apogee about them until after the game had shipped. So they didn't make it onto the hint sheet that came with the game. Keith never wrote down how to access these secret warp levels, and now he doesn't remember how to reach them.
ProgrammingKeith Schuler didn't use a level editor for Chagunitzu and the first two episodes of Paganitzu. He just manually typed the data in for each level. Keith didn't even think about making a level editor until he saw the editor that id Software used to make the Commander Keen games. Once he saw that, he created a simple editor and used that to create the third episode.
TitlePaganitzu is Aztec for "Temple of the Gods."
