Description

Zeus' scepter has been stolen and must be recovered. With the help of the gods and goddesses, solve puzzles to reach that goal.

Heroes Of Hellas is a "match 3" variant with a Greek mythology theme. Hex-shaped alike tiles touching each other are removed by forming chains with selection in a click-hold-drag action. The removal of five or more tiles is rewarded with a gold coin at the end of the chain. Some puzzles have obstacles that must be removed in the same manner such as ropes and stone "monolith" tiles. Tiles containing coins (and other objects such as an hourglass) can be used to connect like tiles for making additional chains. Each puzzle has a time limit. If unsolved when time runs out, the player can elect to start that puzzle again from the beginning. Some levels can be skipped if failure occurs. Pause the game by clicking on the Menu button.

The powers of Greek gods and goddesses are unlocked and charged by matching specific tiles. For instance, one will shuffle all tiles on the board while another will remove or destroy tiles. Only three pre-selected deities are available to help during any one puzzle. When each deity is initially unlocked, an optional jigsaw puzzle mini-game can be solved resulting in a "mosaic" which can be saved as desktop wallpaper. Their "myth" can be read after unlocking resulting a small educational element.

Trophies are awarded for special feats such as a chain of fifteen or more tiles or earning a large amount of gold. At the end of each stage, a portion of a customized palace is constructed using portions selected by the player. The palace completes when the game is solved, and the scepter is found. The player then earns a place as a member of the Assembly of Heroes.

Heroes Of Hellas features three difficulty levels (Easy, Normal & Hard), over ninety puzzle boards, visual and sound effects and an original musical score. More than one player can play individually by typing in their name.
