Description

Real time 3d strategy/rpg game based on Greek mythology. Long time enemy of Athena, Poseidon, has gone rampant and wants to destroy the world yet again. To detain him Athena calls in all human heroes from the Greek mythologies (such as Hercules, Achilles, Icarus, Hippolyta, etc. each with individual skills) and sends them on missions around different islands of the world to stop Poseidon.

You start out controlling two heroes who progress through the game by earning experience and money that can be used to buy units (such as spearmen, gorgons, etc.). Each hero has an inventory and you can often search dead enemies for items such as health apples, etc. and an adjustable agression level to adjust your interaction to npcs.

The game uses a 3d rotating engine similar to Myth's but on a fixed over-head perspective. There's multiplayer support for up to 4 players simultaneous gameplay.
