    ULYSSES AND THE GOLDEN FLEECE

    Protected by the gods, the 'Golden Fleece', legendary treasure of ancient mythology, has been kept from man for many decades. Many valiant men have attempted its recovery, but none have been successful in possessing it at any length of time.
    As Ulysses you are assigned to the task of retrieving the 'Golden Fleece' and return it to the King. You set sail from Ancient Greece and on your voyages encounter many of the foes that troubled your predecessors; the wicked Sirens, the one eyed Cyclops; Pluto, mythical god of the underworld and other deadly enemies. Legend acclaims Ulysses as the most daring and skilled seaman of all time. Clad in a pocketed Toga and chain armour, it's up to you to prove it!
