Description

Hercules is aiming to achieve immortality by completing the task the Gods have set him. His task is presented as a platform adventure set in ancient Greece, featuring a variety of enemies as you play it through.

Of more significance, however, is the game's Artificial Intelligence system, in which creatures monitor how you play, and try to find safer positions. Also, the game offers more bonuses and power-ups if you're struggling to progress. Even without those, there are lots of bonus sections to find and unlock.

Trivia

Copy protection

The Amiga version features multi-layered copy protection. The main part was cracked quickly, and produced what appeared to be a playable game. However, a second layer remained, which raised the difficulty level quickly, to the point where the first boss was impossible to beat. Unfortunately for the Bitmap Brothers, this hard work seemed to backfire, as many assumed that the cracked version they played was representative of the game's difficulty, and the game's reputation was hampered as a result.

Cover art

The box cover art for the Amiga, Atari, DOS and Genesis (PAL) release was done by famous comic artist Simon Bisley (Sláine, Lobo, Batman/Judge Dredd, and several other works).

Music

The title song, Into the Wonderful, was written by Nation 12 which was a music project by John Foxx (of Ultravox fame). The Amiga music was converted by Richard Joseph for Bitmap Brothers. The original song was released on the album Electrofear by Nation 12 in 2005.
