You are Lan Chiow of the Chinese Navy. Your ship is sunk in a storm near the shores of the Aztecs. You are in unchartered land. Search for your captain there, if he survives. The Aztecs are worried.
Their emperor Montezuma has been taken captive. They need help and they have a lot of gold. The Aztec Chief has given you command of his army to stop Cortes. Use it well.
You have no clue how to get the coins to not starve. When the character dies and you lose there is a cinematic that you can't jump, forcing you to wait for it to end and thats is terrible.
The story and criativity are suberb but with no instruction and a lot of unnecessary animations that prevent you from moving making you wait.
