Hercules: The Official Game is a tie-in for the upcoming movie Hercules that is going to hit theaters in two months. Based on the ancient Greek myths, the game tells the story of Hercules going through 12 epic and fatal labors that would free him of his sins of killing his wife and children. With the first mission – slay the Nemean Lion, the fatal journey begins.
In Hercules: The Official Game you play the powerful demigod. You start the adventure alone but can gradually rescue and recruit a cast of brutal and skillful warriors including Tydeus held prisoner, the prephet Amphiaraus, the beautiful hunter Atalanta and more. Before entering a battle, you can select your most powerful hero or heroes. And when fighting with multiple heroes at your command, you can use tagging to your advantage.
Hercules: The Official Game features a battle system similar to that in Blood and Glory. The first several battles serve as tutorial that teaches the basic moves in battle from deflecting enemy attack to combo attacks to unleashing the special abilities via Rage charge. All are based on tap/hold/swipe controls and mainly about accuracy in timing and direction. In a combat, you defend yourself first to wear enemies out by deflecting and blocking and then initiate attack, create combos and unleash your rage to finish them.
In the middle of the Story Missions, you will have to fight numerous battles against continuously tougher enemies. These battles are essential where you can level up your character and your recruited heroes and also earn enough coins to purchase upgrades. Every battle has its recommendation or rather reminders of constant hero upgrading. To guarantee victory or higher winning odds, you need to meet the specific requirements on a hero or the whole fighting team’s attack power, health, stamina and accuracy, etc..
Besides story mode, you can also fight for more coins and bigger rewards in the Survival Pit competing with friends or other players worldwide. Score better and you can rank higher on the leaderboards.
