Sources of Information

From the Publisher

This is an ancient story -- a time when men gods lived together.  The peaceful village of Elis was the home of the fairest maiden and a gentle yet brave young man named Orpheus.  Helene and Orpheus swore eternal love to each other.  But alas, one day, Helene fell victim to the fangs of a ven-omous serpent and was turned to stone.

Your adventure will take you through ancient Greece on a classic mythologi-cal quest.  It may be easy to defeat the snakes and centaurs that inhabit most of the cities but how will you defeat Hydra?  Or the terrible three-headed dog Cerberus?  You'll need to use all of your adventuring skills to find the magic items that allow you to rescue your beloved Helene.

»  Great arcade fighting action combined with a classic quest.

»  Beautifully detailed graphics depicting the ancient lands of Greece.

»  Outstanding soundtracks and musical effects.

»  Password deature allows players to continue a quest in progress.
