Paganitzu  1991

In this sequel to Chagunitzu, archaeologist Alabama Smith (no relation to Nevada Smith) returns on a quest to discover the secrets of an ancient pyramid. Snakes will shoot venom at you if you pass to the left or right of them, and spiders will kill you if they pass next to you, so objects must often be moved to protect yourself from enemies. Once you figure out the solution to a level, quick reflexes are necessary to make it through the game's many traps. There are 3 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.

Episode 1 - Romancing the Rose
Episode 2 - Quest for the Silver Dagger
Episode 3 - Jewel of the Yucatan
