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.

Under rating threshold (show) Very simple concept, very simple execution, but it all fits really well and the atmosphere was amazing for such a game. It gave me the same feeling I had when playing Ghouls 'n Ghosts as a child. I really wish we'd see more games like this around. Beautiful ending as well.

Under rating threshold (show) tintaglia- If you've ever played 'the company of myself' you know of the sad story-line which, pretty much, is what makes the game so brilliant. This game was just like that one. Depressing story line, walking, jumping and avoiding when needed. Just this one had a bit of killing too. The 'depressing' graphics is another reason why I love this game. Graphics don't make a game good, the story and actions do. In my opinion, I'd rather playing this over COD. Too much COD gets so boring. It has nothing new, no story. Just pure killing.

Under rating threshold (show) Another game that proves videogames can be beautiful, and yet again it is not one with technically detailed or enthralling graphics. If only more mainstream game designers could use this as a model. Bravo yet again to Kongregate for using badges to draw attention to this type of game, even when it doesn't get as high user ratings as more "complex" games.

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say, the snakes were the scariest things in the whole game. They move like TWICE as fast as all the other monster things and don't even die when you shoot them...well maybe they do after a couple hits but I wasn't about to stick around to check

Under rating threshold (show) To kill the dog, you need to stand right next to the forcefield so that he leaps into it and bounces back. You may then shoot him in the back. During the last bit of life he has, he will not leap anymore, and thusly, you need to jump over him rather than him jumping over you.

Under rating threshold (show) how to beat the dog... 1) let him jump then go under him while he is in the air, shoot his butt 2) let him jump over you again and shoot his butt 3) jump over him when he charges and shoot his butt.

Under rating threshold (show) @kamil13 To beat Cerberus (the first boss), you have to hit him 3 times in the rear. The first two times, quickly walk under him when he jumps to avoid him, then quickly turn and shoot. The last time, he does low jumps, so jump over him and shoot.
