This Zelda alternative from Google sends you to the world of the Mayans

Google offers you a game supposed to remind you of a simplified Zelda.

Google now has a nice top-down Zelda alternative for you that you can play right in your browser for free. It sends you to historic Mexico, specifically to the mysterious world of ancient Mayan culture. We tell you more about The Descent of the Serpent.

Zeldalike in the Mayan world

Everything revolves around this: The adventure begins in the museum, where a talking statue asks you to help out in the Mayan world. Specifically, you must bring back a lost artifact stolen by a powerful god in time. Otherwise, there is a risk of catastrophic flooding. Before you travel through time, you must choose the appropriate disguise, which means you become a cuddly warrior of a wolf, dog, jaguar or owl, all of which have evocative Mayan names.

These are the disguises you can choose from.
