When I first saw this seafaring adventure game based on Classical Greek lore, I thought it would be cool to give it a try. You chose from different heroes, and build up a fleet of ships, buying and selling goods in the agoras at different ports in the Aegean Sea, and even do a little piracy. You buy and sell ships, like triremes and other battle and cargo ships from the time. There are also quests, but after a time, it was hard to find out where the quests were supposed to be.

This is a hidden object mystery game set in one of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. You are brought in by a tiny commuter plane to the island of Tantalus, named for the king that so angered the gods that he was set in Tartarus for eternity and cursed with non-stop thirst, with his body chained to a peach tree immersed in a spring. His head was chained back, so he cannot lower his head to drink from the spring, nor can he reach the fruit on the branch right above his head to eat it to let the juice quench his thirst. Such is a fitting place for a murder mystery. You are brought to the island for a class reunion. Tantalus looks like most serene Greek tourist destinations. The blue-trimmed whitewashed buildings, the soft, sandy beaches, and all kinds of classical period artwork everywhere depicting the Greek gods and heroes. You are given a guidebook and a map, and the map will become one of the best tools you can have. When you have explored an area, and you have to go back to it, instead of going through other areas to get there, you can map travel to that place, similar to the map travel used in Guild Wars.
