History is filled with many great mysteries. Who built Stonehenge? What happened to the colony of Roanoke? One of the most perplexing mysteries is finding out what happened to the Mayan civilization. But now this mystery can be put to rest thanks to Sileni Studios and their game, Mayan Death Robots. Turns out the Mayans were attacked by giant space robots.
The game puts players in the role of one of these alien killing machines. They pick a robot from a roster, with the goal of destroying their opponent’s power core. Each robot has unique abilities and weapons. Incinerate, zap, nuke, and implode enemies in style. Both players will have to aim their weapon at a target of their choosing before the timer runs out. Once the timer is out, the actions play at the same time, similar to the mechanics of Worms.
The Mayan citizens believe that the players are actually gods who have descended from the heavens; as such, they’ll aid their “god” in battle. However, the actual Mayan gods don’t take blasphemy lightly, and are intent on stopping the players, appearing on the field as a massive boss. Both players have to work together to defeat the deity before it smites them both.
Mayan Death Robots is out now on Steam for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. The game is priced at $14.99 USD. To learn more about the game, visit the official website, and “like” it on Facebook.
