It would have been awesome if they made an Amiga version with more screens and levels to explore while still keeping the "feel" (and non-scrolling). I would have bought a copy for sure back in 1990.
Definitely one of the best games for 8-bit home computers, especially considering the year it has been released (1983). And yes, it is still very enjoyable I think that Atari800 version is the best, but there are some more advanced versions, for example Sega Master System one (1989, fairly improved graphics, it looks a bit strange, but the gameplay is practically the same).
In 1998, Robert Jaeger, creator of original Atari800 Montezuma's prototype (this one with title screen and title music - he sold rights to this game to Parker Bros. and they released the final, stripped-down 16kB version and a bunch of conversions for other platforms) released a "sequel" to MR called Montezuma's Return! (PC only). This game is very good and a bit underrated in my own opinion, it resembles the atmosphere of Montezuma's Revenge. Truly ahead it's time (FPP platform game with beat 'em up elements), but on the other hand - with true-oldschool feeling There is also Montezuma's Return! cartdridge for Gameboy Color, which is very simillar to original Montezuma's Revenge.
