Description from the packaging.

Who but the gods could have laid down a gauntlet to challenge both your skill and your intellect!

And who would have accepted such a challenge? Only the bravest and cleverest of warriors of the ancient world- Hercules. Become this mighty mortal as you enter the pantheon of the gods, brimming with an onslaught of fantastical monsters, mind-twisting puzzles, hidden underworlds and fiendish labyrinths. Slay your adversaries and earn points to help defeat the tougher enemies to come. Any of a multitude of encounters has the power to either help or complicate your quest. Explore and experiment because there are as many ways to conquer each world as there are stars above Mt. Olympus, and every choice has its consequences. Survive and you shall be immortal!

The perilous city engulfs you in a four-part reward and progression puzzle involving hidden keys and doorways, pulling levers in a secret sequence and acquiring powerful crystals.

The superbly animated Hercules takes on legendary wickedness supplied by Harpies, Griffins and hordes of other monsters who stalk his quest for immortality.

Secret chambers and passageways in The Temple may lead to untold treasures or unspeakable treachery.

In The Shop spend your riches on weapons, potions and power-ups for your inventory. But be sure to weigh their potency against their price.

Every turn of The Labyrinth is scattered with objects such as candles, oil lamps, gems, and icons. Some hold secrets to your destiny, others only death.

Discover short cuts, moving blocks and hidden teleports on your journey through The Underworld in search of the mysterious alchemist's room.

  • Adjusts to your skill level by monitoring every move with extra help for the novice, rewards for clever maneuvers and tougher challenges for the omnipotent.
  • Battle highly intelligent adversaries who's insidious tactics will become more devious as your skill improves.
  • Remarkable character interaction challenges you to decide which beasts should be confronted, which are best left alone and which can be tricked into helping you.
