The Mayan Mystery is a retro-inspired metroidvania with an emphasis on exploration. You play as Mitch, and with the help of your best friend (Otis) and mentor (Dr.A), must stop Horatio Hawk from escaping the Mayan temple with a magical artifact! This is the first in a series of games that will take the Adventures Apes from one location to the next, one era to the next, all in an effort to keep the world's most precious treasures out of Horatio's hands! The full version one the Adventure Apes Webpage has 5 bosses and more than 100 rooms plus an illustrated instruction booklet! :)
The Adventure Apes doesn't meet the game play or quality requirements to be hosted on Desura, so help me out by suggesting ways that I can improve it!

A little bit of bad news for the game; the submission request to Desura was turned down the other day. I was told that game play and quality don't meet the standards required, and that there are dozens of other games already like it on the site.
Without going on a rant about how much of a bummer that statement is, I want to focus on making the game fun and enjoyable, and something that YOU want to see on Desura! I've worked really hard on this game and am proud of how it's turned out so far, but my opinion is biased of course. So, I would really like to get everyone's opinions on the game, good and bad, and any suggestions that you have to make it a better experience for players.
I know, it's a tall order to expect everyone who reads this to give the game a try, let alone take the time to give their two cents on it, but if one kind soul will offer up their thoughts, perhaps one more will, then one more, and so on :)
Everything helps towards making the Adventure Apes the best it can be!
