This one is a lot of fun. It's a bit railroaded in terms of the narrative, but the diversity of how choices affect the immediate story makes that just fine. I think it is hilarious that there is an achievement for cheating. Unpacking and modifying these games is fairly straightforward, so it's definitely doable. My only issue with the game is that some choices to disobey lead to immediate death forcing you to start over. It's sometimes hard to know which ones will do this.

in strong need of save points. Once you master a section, it's tedious to get back to where you were. My pattern is that I tend to die in new sections, trying to stay in character and failing, then have to work back there to choose the 'right' choices. The further I get, the more ground I have to cover again. Not fun, which is disappointing because the story is interesting. Also, it's a little weird for the narrator to address my character directly.

This is a refreshing text adventure that brings things back to ancient times. I wish the story was longer, but it is good for what you get. There is some replayability, although I have not completed more than 2 playthroughs. It is very enjoyable and i wish there were more ancient Greco/Roman text adventures.
