Follow the path of a great hero of the past, Hercules, as you embark on a new exciting journey. Ancient Greece prospered under the patronage of the mighty gods of Olympus, but, over the years, its residents forgot to give the deities their due and thank them for the abundance and happiness they lived in. Restore 7 ancient artifacts to appease the gods and save the wonderful Peloponnese from destruction. Engage into a unique mix of Match-3, Hidden Object and Adventure gameplay and complete challenging quests on your way to victory.

Posted Image Exciting quests.
Posted Image Become the hero of Ancient Greece!

This looks like an extension of the Atlantis match 3 series, all of which (I think) I've played.  They're not bad at all; but since M3 isn't my favorite genre (well, unless it comes with cute little talking fish ;) ), I'll wait for Playrix's next offering.  :)

I demo'd it yesterday and yes, it's definitely VERY similar to the Atlantis series -- which I own (M3 being one of my fav genres ;) ), and there are not enough differences / news to consider buying this one additionally. The FROG scenes still contain the tiny item parts. And the game doesn't have real widescreen, but decorated bars left and right.

Other than that, it's a nice, entertaining M3, which gets more challenging in higher levels / soon, due to the board layout becoming more difficult with holes and the like, for moving the artifact parts to the bottom.
Nice story, nice story telling, some background info on Greek Gods - really nice, lol  :thumbsup: - but just as a first game, IMO.
