Herc's adventure is certainly very original in its approach. Basially, you play as either super-strong Hercules, bow-wielding Atlantis, or the swordsman, Jason. Each of the characters has their own strengths and weaknesses. For example, Atlantis has an attack that has excellent range, but her strength is very low. In this game, you must rescue Persephony, goddess of spring, who has been captured by Hades, lord of the underworld. You play in the world of ancient greece, and travel from place to place in a top-view perspective (think A Link to the Past). Each character has their own unique weapon, but they can also use a variety of limited use items and weapons which you collect throughout the game. These are escencial to winning against the games tough bosses, which include Medusa, the Minotaur, Hydra, and Hades's three-headed dog Cerberus, to name a few. The weapons range from spears to chile breath to laser guns, and some are btter than others. To replenish health, you eat Gyros, and you need gold to buy a lot of important things. Howver, gold can be hard to come by, making saving (yes, it costs money to save) impossible at some times. Each character can lift objects such as rocks and houses, but that requires strength, which depletes when you pick up or crry an object, and whne you run fast, but goes back up slowly. Stregth max can be increased though dumbbell items or 'bought' from weight-lifters. The story is quite original and very quirky. It is almost guarenteed to draw a laugh at some point. The grapics are in a cartoony style, but are very rich and colorful. The sounds are cool, but the music can get just plain annoying after an hour or so. Gameplay wise, Herc's Adventure is very fun, but suffers from a repetitive air and its hard difficulty level. Overall, this adventure is worth a buy, and will keep you playing for hours on end.

Buy it Buy iy Buy it and um... BUY IT!

Ok it might look boring but it's not there are three people you can choose from Herc who is strong Jason who... has a sling shot
and Atlanta who shoots people with her arrows. I think anyone should buy it.

Fun for all ages! One of the best!

I was lent this game by a friend and soon knew we had to have one for ourselves. I play it almost as much as the kids. It is HALLARIOUS! It is definitely most fun with two players. You really have to work together and help each other out(as a mom, I really like that about it). There is so much to this game, we had it for a very long time before we finally got through all the challenges. Watch out, you might spend hours playing it! A GREAT ADVENTURE!

its an average game

herc's adventure sold in the stores for 20 dollars, the year of its release. i picked it up back then. while i did enjoy this game, it is still an average game. the characters you meet along the way are humours and have their charm. but the ending was only 5 seconds long, and extremely unrewarding. this game has zero replay value.

overall decent game, but not worth more than 20 dollars. play a Zelda game instead.

Great clean fun game!

My 16 yr. old son actually requested this game recently. He had it when he was younger and it got broken. Even after all of the games that he has now with better graphics and of a much more violent nature, he still enjoys this game! That's saying a lot for a teenager!

An Amazing Feat

This is the best game i have ever played. I am going on 45 years old, single, with no kids, and I LOVE this game to death. If anyone has not played this game, they should. It changes your life drastically. For example, I was depressed and suicidal. Once I bought this game, all of that changed. I play this game religiously everyday and am deeply thrilled with the creators. I once even met them and they gave me a cookie. It tasted good. I believe it was oatmeal raisin. All and all, an amazing game. I love it. It replaces my wife, that I never had.
