Are you brave enough to explore the jungle of the Aztecs and find the treasures hidden deep in the ancient temple? The fan-favorite Match 3 series is back with a brand new sequel, developed by Alawar and Wellore.
Like most of the Match 3 titles out there, The Treasures of Montezuma 5 does not really revolve around a particular storyline. Nonetheless, the developer still kept the signature Aztec theme of the series around in this sequel.
With the switch in developer, the art style in this sequel also noticeably changed – for the better, at least. The graphics are bright and cheerful, with colorful visual effects and a nicely-cluttered design – The Treasures of Montezuma has never look so modern! Moreover, the soundtracks are no less impressive. We love the lively and enthusiastic mood of the music; fun, while not being distracting.
Gameplay wise, The Treasures of Montezuma 5 is rock-solid. There are 70 levels in total, across 14 different landscapes. In each level, your main task is to unleash a specific number of gems from the tiles by doing matches. You can also achieve the Bonus Goal by scoring enough points; in return, you will receive a Key to the chest, where you will find some awesome rewards.
The main currency used in the game is Crystal. You can earn more crystals through several methods – complete a level, play one of the three mini-games or visit the slot machine. The crystals can be used in the Shop, where you can various one-time boosters or Totems that can be helpful during the game.
The major concern with The Treasures of Montezuma 5 is that due to the lack of variety, the levels can get repetitive after a while. It is no question that the game is addicting, we just wish the developer would have included some unique features or bonus levels. Unfortunately, The Treasures of Montezuma 5 also comes with only one standard mode, there is no Untimed Mode available. This can be very challenging, almost frustrating, for beginners or those who want to relax a little bit because levels can turn into a mayhem pretty fast.
