Under rating threshold (show) Great game. Simple graphics, simple music, yet a great atmosphere, poetic and melancholic. Also, nice use of the Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, with the Cerberus and Hades as the two bosses. Favorited.

Under rating threshold (show) it's not that much a philosophical game, but it's a really nice adaptation of Orpheous and Eurydice's Myth. I had to get her ghost to realize this was the myth and that the final boss is Hades :I

Under rating threshold (show) Old Greek mythology, a man wanted his wife back from the dead. He traveled to the underworld, battled demons, and was told that he can have his wife back if her spirit can follow him back up, but he was never allowed to look behind him for his wifes spirit. In the end, he looked behind him, and he never retreived his wife. Sad story, great game.

Under rating threshold (show) Good game, but the difficulty seems to ramp up really fast in some areas, and the restart can be jarring at times. Love the art style and flavor of the game though.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't say this lightly. In my 20 some odd years of playing videogames I have played a few thousand some odd games from all different types of platforms. Be it PC, Console, or Flash. This is one of the best games I have ever played. Quite difficult, and equally ingenious. Pure gameplay, no fancy graphics are needed here.

Under rating threshold (show) Regardless of the artsiness (which is really just a video-game retelling of a classic story), the game has some awesome level design. Terry's a master at designing a level around a simple concept.

Under rating threshold (show) And btw, here's the basic story on Wikipedia- "The most famous story in which Orpheus figures is that of his wife Eurydice (also known as Agriope). While walking among her people, the Cicones, in tall grass at her wedding, Eurydice ran into a nest of snakes which bit her fatally on her heel. Distraught, Orpheus played such sad songs and sang so mournfully that all the nymphs and gods wept. On their advice, Orpheus traveled to the underworld and by his music softened the hearts of Hades and Persephone (he was the only person ever to do so), who agreed to allow Eurydice to return with him to earth on one condition: he should walk in front of her and not look back until they both had reached the upper world. He set off with Eurydice following and in his anxiety as soon as he reached the upper world he turned to look at her, forgetting that both needed to be in the upper world, and she vanished for the second time, but now forever."

Under rating threshold (show) I just wanted to say, to FilFire's story, Hades DID resist the music, but his wife, Persophone, didn't. She convinced Hades to give Orpheus a chance. - Also, like FilFire said, Orpheus turned around at the gates at hell, and here they die at the grave. In most tales, men speak of the Sining Head, which was left of Orpheus' body after he got ripped apart by the Maenaden. It kept singing and singing, lying on his lyre... -- Rather than that, beautiful game. Great to see some of the Old Greek stories around! 5 outta 5!

Under rating threshold (show) For some reason, I've always really liked simplistic platformers. Something about them is just very enjoyable, probably partly because a lot of the story and characters can easily be substituted in.
