Under rating threshold (show) In the Greek Version, Orpheus was a beautiful singer and lyre player. When his love, the nymph Eurydice, died, he went to Hades (underworld) to convince Hades (the God of the underworld) to give Eurydice back. Hades couldn't resist the music. He promised Orpheus Eurydice back, but only if he could walk all the way back without looking back once. He managed to get back to the gates of the underworld, but just before going trough, he wanted to make sure she was still following him, and looked back... and she was lost. He tried to go back for her, but this time Cerberus didn't forsake the gate and didn't let him through. Without Eurydice, Orpheus didn't want to go on living The Maenaden, female followers of Dionysos, loved his music and when he didn't play music anymore, they ripped him into pieces. His soul went to the underworld, and he was together with Eurydice again in the afterlive.

Under rating threshold (show) tip for the last boss, if you fire a little bit after u fall of the previous screen you hit him on the way down, then you can jump up when the upper platform is about to dissapear and hit him twice asap, if there is two spiders on the ground you have to stay on the platforms, hope this helps so you all get to see the ending

Under rating threshold (show) I think he died at the very start. I mean, look, he was mourning, fell down a long, long way, was in blackness, (Like a transaction to hell) and now he went to hell. Who gets me? That's what I think what happened. He couldn't take the hurt of the loss of his loved one. :'(

Under rating threshold (show) Orpheus was a skilled minstrel who was to marry Eurydice when she suddenly died. So he traveled into the underworld and convinced Hades with his music to let her go. Hades agreed on the condition that Orpheus could never look at Eurydice-who would follow behind him-until he was out of the underworld. Orpheus and Eurydice began their travel above, but Orpheus began to fear that he was tricked. So when they were close, he looked behind him and saw his love before she returned to the underworld - hope that clarifies the story a bit ^-^

Under rating threshold (show) To kill hades (and actually for most puzzles) it seems that the longer you wait, the lower your chance of survival. So if you get to Hades, try and kill him as fast as you can. I think it helps to not touch the ground if possible, but I'll let you figure out that part ;) I didn't particularly like the controls as I found the character's 'response' a little frustrating. I enjoyed the music and I quite liked Cerebus :p Most of all I like that you can't really "die" (but I also won't spoil the ending for new players). But, the multi-limbed creature was slightly annoying until I understood how it worked. I think persistence in finishing the game actually helped me enjoy it a bit more than I would have if I gave up - I do like a manageable challenge ;p Overall, a lovely game, so thank you (:

Under rating threshold (show) Ok. An hour thinking brought me to this conclusion. The whole thing was an illusion. He never went to the underworld, as it was his thoughts of this epic adventure to save his loved one. The whole dream ends when he realizes that he is still there. I think the reason that he also disappears with his loved one's soul is because in fact his soul died too from losing her. Sad if you really think about it.

Under rating threshold (show) ♦ Remarkable. I absolutely adore Greek and Roman mythology, especially this myth. Twisted, and beautiful. The game itself was simple, yet difficult. And well, just don't look back.

Under rating threshold (show) @WyattW43 it's because he looked back because he saw himself before he started his journey, looking back at your past. So they can never escape since you can't escape the past.

Under rating threshold (show) The bosses are perhaps a bit too difficult. (Philosophical games can't be appreciated as well if their difficulty scares away half the audience before they can see the whole story.) But the game is otherwise brilliant. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Its a terrific game, it also shows how good graphics don't make the game, content does... This should be categorized with other games just like it, there are plenty of other games like this one to put in its own group. 5/5 fantastic game. Truly worthy of 5/5. Rate up if you believe so too.

Under rating threshold (show) i dont understand the low rating , and yes i called 4 stars a low rating. this game is beautifully planned, the soundtrack is enthralling , the use of Greek mythology is a great way to make you learn something (wow i sound like a teacher) and the 8-bit idea is genius ! I wish they made more of this style of game *sigh* 5 stars
