I enjoyed playing this game very much. The graphics are excellent, with smooth animation and although I seemed to be running around the maze doing nothing for quite some time. Gift From The Gods is totally absorbing, interesting and fun.

Gift from the Gods is without doubt the best game that has ever come out with Imagine connected somewhere to it. The graphics are very good and the animation of the various monsters and yourself is excellent. The game is colourful and the overall presentation is marvellous. Gift from the Gods is fun to play and, offering challenges to players of all sorts — you don’t have to be an arcade wiz to get from room to room, but you have to be quite good at games if you want to complete the game. The only thing that really lets the game down is that it’s a bit expensive, though it does come in a very attractive box. Overall, Gift from the Gods is a very good game at a steep price

Great fun and very complex, Gift from the Gods is produced by Ocean Software[...].

The Greek legends of heroic quests make great themes for games and this is certainly a well executed example.

The graphics are well made and the figure of Orestes walks and flies realistically. Technically an excellent production, but it does seem rather short on events. You can wander around the maze for quite a time with little happening to provide interest. Gift from the Gods is a curate's egg really: long in technical merit, short on excitement.
