Description of Paganitzu

Paganitzu and Chagunitzu is a pair of fun action/puzzle games programmed by Keith Schuler. In both games, your goal is to help a hapless hero go through rooms of puzzles and traps to find treasure and a way out. You will need to push objects, deal with hostile animals like snakes and spiders, and navigate puzzling maps.

Both games are fun, easy to learn, and are a nice combination of reflexes and brain-teasing puzzles. If you enjoy the likes of Chip's Challenge but want a bit more action, both of these underdogs are well worth your time. Both games even include some hidden rooms and treasures, built-in hints, and even funny animated sequences. Two thumbs up!

Some interesting information about the games' history in the designer's own words:

I started working on video games when I was about eight years old, using a TRS-80 Color Computer. Over the years I got a few minor things published in magazines, the most significant being a game called Castle Zhagwhar. My first few PC creations were board games. During high school, before I could drive, I created Chagunitzu, successor to Castle Zhagwhar. Scott Miller liked it and had me create the sequel, Paganitzu, for Apogee.

I had this game when it was first released to play on my Atari 5200 if I recall correctly. big loved it from the first move! I was in the process of moving so I had my older brother hold onto my game and system. He loved to play Paganitzu as much as I did. When I settled into my new place and called him to get my game back he asked if he could keep it a while longer. Being kind hearted as I am of course the answer was yes. Needless to say I never got my game or system back again. I didn't care so much about the system it was the game I wanted back more than anything else. I was heartbroken things upgraded so fast I never found it again until now. I am thrilled to play my most favorite game ever made! I will be sharing the info with my brother because I am still so kindhearted. I want to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, for putting the game back out in the world again. You made me a happy woman again. Cya round.

Quite right! It's awesome.
Always was, still is. Still? It always was.
What is passes the test of time. As Paganitzu did.

Oh what a classic this game was. Maybe not the most popular, but it's one crazy logic based strategy game. Reminds me of TIM (The Incredible Machine) for the problem solving style, but the graphics and style of this game is very different. That level where you start in the dark was a major doozy.
