Aztez is the marriage of turn based strategy and deep beat 'em up combat. Set in the world of the Precolumbian Mesoamerica at the birth of the Aztec civilization, you will take control of the burgeoning political power and turn it into the most incredible empire that the western half of the planet has ever seen. Manage the empire and establish income from a high level, and then utilize real time beat 'em up gameplay to address the various political events the regularly occur in the empire.
