UPDATE 05-14-2010: you can now CAPITALIZE up to 4 medals!

"Greek & Wicked" is an experiment like "Tuper Tario Tros." was, not a big game.

William started to think about the differences between old and modern games : what are these differences ? Mostly better graphics and sounds, but in term of game mechanics old and modern games can be very similar. So, what if we take modern games elements and reduce them to their most simple form to create a very old fashioned electronic game like a Game & Watch.

When we started working on it, Guillaume was playing a game that was the perfect modern and AAA game reference we needed : God of War.

We had some difficulties to finish this game, and in the same time daily news were (and still are) really hard too. We thought the fight of our little greek character against an invincible hydra was really close to modern fights. That's why William integrated a little scenario connected to recent european events.

Awesome GOW twist

You know its nearlly the same that the original game, just a combo infinite buttonsmash with some message bague behind scenes.

Awesome exersice guys.

Modern Old its the freaking same, only graphics and clock timming have evolved.

Now you know we would love to see much more modern comparassions.
It would be freking fun to see how yo translate other nowaday's gameplays.

My only Greek friend...KRATOS!

From the first moment I got hooked on writing reviews on flash games and got drawn in to the flash world I wondered only one thing: Why isn't there a flash game with Kratos? If there is except this one I would really like to see it. Still, besides this little game and a very unfunny flash movie about Kratos that I've seen here a couple of months ago, Kratos is absent from the flash scene. Why is that I still don't know. There are many flash games about other famous characters and nobody sued the creators. So come on GODS OF FLASH give us more Kratos falsh games, I know you can do it. SwingSwing has already done it! Unite with him, and create a memorable Kratos flash game. I will provide the story if needed, It would be my pleasure.

But enough with my never ending desires to see many Kratos flash games in the future...it is time to REVIEW!

What we have here is a wonderful little game about the first epic battle in God of War I. The art is interesting and the gameplay returns many memories from my childhood, but it is not unique, just forgotten. Still it is very brave to make this gameplay active in 2010, and I am proud that the creator respects the OLD WAYS OF GAMING :D. So you can't complain about the frame rate ;) The sound effects are solid, but a remake of an epic soundtrack from gow is required, also some camera effects would make this old gameplay look modern. If there is a sequel more puzzling levels would be needed and some finishing moves transformed in old school would be fun to see.

This game is a fun idea and I hope it is the beginning of the Flash Kratos ERA.

Our lives are not dedicated to Kratos, but it was a pleasure to make this game :)
We hope you'll like our next games, even if Kratos is not in them.
