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) Very nice. But every time I looked back and that spirit made that creepy noise and vanished, I got chills.

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

Under rating threshold (show) People are saying that this game is all philosophical; giving their own interpretations and everything. But it's not open for interpretation really...it's the story of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Under rating threshold (show) Based on the greek story of orpheus who was a musician and fell in love with a wood nymph who died. He went to the underworld to ask hades to give her back. Hades said that if he played his music while he walked out of the underworld, his love would follow him. Hades also said that if he looked back, his love would be lost forever. Long story short- He looked back :(

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game. My tips for beating the bosses: for the dog, go right up against the left 'electric fence'. It'll bounce off it and point away from you - shoot it. Stay right next to the fence and it'll do the same again - repeat. This only works twice though, as you'll see. For Hades himself: shoot him in the head as you fall onto the platform. Then jump, jump again, and fire again. Blam - two hits before you even hit the floor

Under rating threshold (show) That was... a very interesting game, I think it deserves to be categorized alongside "Company of Myself" and other philisophical games in terms of ability to make one think- I can see why it would be rated low, however, with multiple levels being infinitely challenging at times and in certain ways- THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU RATE, KIDS!

Under rating threshold (show) Oh, man, this game blew my mind. I didn't understand why it was called "Don't Look Back" until I defeated the big boss and realized it was the tale of Orpheus. Smooth gameplay, awesome pixel graphics, haunting ending, and a really satisfyingly hard challenge, to boot.
