Magnetic Scrolls' last adventure before the introduction of their 'Magnetic Windows' format, Myth is classic interactive fiction.

Myth is set in Ancient Greece, place of myth and legend. Hence the title. You are are Poseidon, the Sea God. You have to journey to the Underworld to get the Dark Helment of Hades.

Its basically a tiny treasure hunt game where you get to play Poker with Charon and Death.
