About

Step into this epic point-and-click mythical adventure game. See what it takes to be the Greek hero Odysseus (Ulysses)! Get ready to embark on a journey filled with danger, mythical creatures and ancient Gods. Thrilling moments and unexpected twists as well as the evil presence of legendary creatures dominate this mythical game throughout.

You will have to step into the shoes of Odysseus (Ulysses) and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It took him ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten- year Trojan War. Become a part of Homer's original myth, live the adventure, and educate yourself during the process.



Beware; this is not a simple task. You will have to escape from Goddess Calypso's island, blind Cyclops Polyphemus, face the witch-Goddess Circe, go to the land of the death in search of an oracle, avoid the Siren mermaids, pass between the six-headed monster Scylla and the whirlpool Charybdis, and visit the Sun God's island. Finally, you will have to murder the suitors and get together with your beloved wife, Penelope and your fearless son Telemachus.

The Odyssey reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Product received for free Odyssey-godquest from the Cypriot developers, based on myths about Odysseus. The Quest tells the myth quite close to the original text, so that among other things it has certain cognitive functions, for those who want to refresh in memory of the myth, well, or to attach to it their children. Plot and language. The game has a Russian, but it is made disgusting, because in addition to grammatical errors, the text in many places is written in a merged, and with large letters where horrible, Toestkakovotso, from what to read it is a pain, it is better to put English. On story it is rather exact (for game) retelling myth about the Odyssey, and without fashionable nowadays in Kazualki simplifications. That is, if the Polyfhim eye is pierced in the myth, it is vykalyruv and in the game, no compassion, and other herbivorous adaptations. What is good. The Plot is served quite interestingly. Gameplay. Quest as it is, but rather complex. Difficult not so much because of the puzzles, which are not here (there are many mini-games instead of them), how much because there are many small items that we need to promote, but which is difficult to see in the landscape. For example, a frequent situation when there is a large forest in which you need to see a separate twig and tear it off. Or There are cobble-stones, and it is necessary to see the Masseenki stones lying nearby and to raise it. Otherwise, all classically-communicate with the Persians, find items, apply them where you need. In Some places there are light, casual mini-games, near the end, they will be for a while (but to lose to us still will not give). Among other things, we have an account, for the examination of everything, communication with everyone and stuff. It is local, so there is little point in it. And finally, after exiting the game, it can be displayed as still working, so you have to knock out the steam itself. It's a jamb. Graphics and sounds. The Picture is Namerjanno Topornaya, but there is a certain aesthetics in it. The Music is ordinary, and not very memorable. As a result. A Good Oldschool quest based on myths about Odysseus. Since It is made quite close to the text, it will come down as a method of acquaintance with the myth itself, for those who do not know it or forget, as well as for children. The Quest is somewhat inferior in quality, another quest from the same razslaves, about Zeus-Zeus Quest Remastered But in general is also quite pleasant. 7 years on the island of Calypso of 10 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
