Your brothers and sisters are coming to try to kill you before you're even born.  Spring forth from your mother's womb fully-armored and armed with your trusty Xiuhcoatl (serpent weapon) and strike them by surprise as they climb Coatepec (snake hill) to reach you.


Kill as many of your treacherous siblings as you can.  Collect their hearts, they serve both as your final score and as your health, try not to get damaged along the way.

Very nice graphics (especially Huitzilopochtli himself), very cool snake sceptre, and the whole ambience reminded me a bit of Spelunky. My one complaint is that the player sprite moves a bit sluggishly when walking. That's a minor nitpick though, this is very polished-looking and playable.

Nice game so far! Needs some SFX asap!
