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.

Great

I love to think of this as a vintage take on a modern classic. I'm a huge God of War fan.
The only thing that tweaked me was trying to throw in a political message at the end?
Kind of tweaked me,
but it won't keep me from loving it a 2nd time!

This is a rather interesting game, altough it gets a bit lost in its criticism of capitalism - which is almost nonexistent between people raised on the "alternatives" ecopol systems (at least those who weren't party members), mind you, because on these "alternatives" you could get jailtime for this game. lol

But, people are entitled to their opinion. And the theme isn't all that related to gameplay, so there's no reason to bother about it.

minus 0.5 star for lack of other mechanics that would make the game more interesting. It's just one level, over and over, though. There is not much replay value, altough medals provide a fair challenge for exp players and a huge one for casuals.

It is true that the heads of the Hydra grew back..

..but Hercules battled the Hydra and cut off its central head, which was mortal, and with his great strength buried it under a rock. ....not that I'm suggesting we cut off the central head of capitalism, not really sure what that would be...CEO of ?Halliburton perhaps? I'm just stating mythological history. Great retro GoW1 remake nonetheless.

It's good to read about mythology :)
