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."
