Haters gonna hate!

This game is pretty fun and simple. The targeting system isn't stupid or hard, it's just different and you get used to it after the 3rd level or so, or at least i did. and the power ups aren't too expensive or anything those other guys are saying, to get the most points you just have to be good and actually put some strategy into it, like who to attack first, not just mindlessly launch spear after spear or whoever you
choose. nice job.

Twad is a Twat!

Twad did make some very good points for improvement (such as targeting assistance).
But in my opinion the game was effing difficult at the start of the game and about when the Gorgons show up, and then it got progressively easier. UNTIL the last level, my computer had a heart attack when there was six thousand manticores on screen! And then I had a heart attack when that second wave of cyclops came (thus leading me to the conclusion that the last level is too difficult for someone of a short patience like me).
Upgrades were moderatly priced and the only (useful) upgrades were the lightning bolt for Axilles and the temple improvements.
And in the books of how accurate ingame stuff was (I'm not positive the Succubi was a prominent creature in ancient Greek mythology), though I do like how you protrayed the Minotaur and the Manticore, though what on earth were those effing annoying little green things???!
Big downside for me, was lack of Greek spoken in-game, and this frustrates me about all ancient Greek based games, although I realise the modern Greek language wasnt around in ancient times, it was a heck of alot closer than the English language. And lack of ability to atleast make the menu in Greek. Big dissapointment that was.
All in all, I'm pleased that game was very crisp and the idea was very nice, the execution could have been liyo better.

(Though admitadly the only reason I pushed through the initial levels was because I am Greek and dont see alot of [good] Greek games).

targetting system is really, really BAD

Seriously, its all about luck, and wild guesses. When harpies shows up i just dont bother anymore.

Nice presentation and all, but seriously, the way our character fires is wrong on so many levels it just break the game for me.

Keeping the LMB pressed should make the guy prepare the next shot automatically (it often doesnt prepare another shot when i click right after im done throwing one, making it a waste of time and a guaranteed miss)
Just make it respond better when we want to prepare a new shot. Or give a sound that tells us the guy is charging up his next throw.

I want some targettting assistance. A line, dots, whatever that can help us have a basic idea where the shot will go early on.

Upgrades are very, very expensive.

Damnit all

If the last few enemies are right up at my temple, i'll have my mouse down by them so I can hit them, and when the level ends it automatically restarts the level. I didn't have an issue with this till the later levels, but now i've had to redo level 7 4 times in a row. Fuck that.
