Kingdom of death, it bores me to death..
What an awful game.. Graphics were unsharp at first, took a few seconds to adjust..
But all in all, just a boring game with nothing new or interesting.. Made me fall asleep

I guess one person's 'awful game' is another's really enjoyable one

I'm a sucker for all things Greek anyway, so am slightly biased towards this game. The graphics weren't as sharp as they could have been but not a deal breaker for me. Playing as two characters gives the game more dimension and the male/female perspective made it more interesting. It did seem quite slow, so I turned off the special effects and that seemed to cure the slowness.

The Hos were quite varied and inter-active, with a Match-3 option if you prefer. The mini-games were in turn easy or frustrating; with more time I would have worked out a couple of them but skipped them to save time. Plenty of collectibles (if you can find them!) and a map that transports, along with some extras that weren't very enticing. I think there were about 7 chapters in the main game and of course there's a bonus chapter, so looks like a long-ish game. And no helpers or missing zipper pulls but this game is set long before they were invented, so that's a plus for me!

I will most likely buy this when there's a good sale around. I enjoyed the demo very much

No technical issues with the demo, which lasted 72 minutes for me. Ancient desktop running Win7 Prof 64-bit.

Hi all! Well, we have #4 in this series. As always, I review on the game play and not usually the story line, as others do a much better job on that than I. I beta tested this one a while back and it tested far better than the demo today. Not sure what happened, but the graphics were quite fuzzy during cut scenes and close-ups. My poor old eyes didn't much care for that at all. Colors were pretty bright and clear. For the most part, the game play was good, except for some choppy movements in the animation. As I said, the beta was much better and didn't have these problems at all. Music was soothing and quiet. There weren't a lot of sound FX, which would have helped this game a lot. Voice overs were nice, age and character appropriate, but few and far between. You can skip dialog if you read faster than they speak, but not in all scenes.

HOPs were a nice combination of interactive and standard lists and find the difference between two pictures. They were pretty clean and items were not difficult to find. I believe I only found 3 and I played it to the end of the demo. If you didn't want to play the HOP, you could play the match 3, which I didn't. You collect power ups for the match game, but since I didn't try it, I don't know what they do for you. I would imagine they help you move through the puzzle faster. Puzzles were few, but fairly simple. I had one that took me a bit of thought and time to complete. Jump map is helpful and rather than an automatic transport window, the map opens up to show you where you can go next. Areas of interest are clearly marked. You do quite a lot of back-tracking in this game, but it isn't constantly to the same location. I liked how you actually play the part of the hero and the heroine by switching characters during the game. It does tell you when to switch in custom mode.

A few collectibles. You need to find 14 ancient artifacts, which are small and hard to distinguish; 38 olive branches, which are fairly large but tucked away in a cut scene. You use the olives to buy items for the boudoir...okay not exciting. You also find the match 3 power ups that I mentioned above, which are hidden just about anywhere and easy to overlook. Same old achievements as in other games.

I found that I liked the story for some reason, but was not kicked out about the buried heads. That was creepy and unsettling to me and really wasn't necessary to the game or story. That alone makes this game not "family" friendly. The one problem I did have in the demo was that it took multiple "clicks" to take items out of the box that pops up when you finish a HOPs and earn an item. That frustrates me. When I beta tested this one, I gave it a 4.5, but I was disappointed in the final release, so that score is going to be lower. I'm sure a lot of people will love this game, but I'm just not sure about it as it is, so I will put it in my puddle for now. I will recommend this one and hope for a fix for the choppy movements and probably buy it if a really good sale comes along.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews.

I was in the mood for an interesting (mythology) not too hard game that would allow for lots of interruptions and this one filled my needs.

I very much enjoyed the gameplay, story-line, graphics, background music and a 'different atmosphere' The Bonus game was good also

When I finished playing and checked to see the Developers credits I could not find them

Even though I got this one during a BOGO I would not have been disappointed if I had paid full price for it.

This beauty in my in my personal grading system is getting a & 1/2 out of a possible 5

Played on a newer desktop PC running factory installed Windows 10 with no problems !
