Description
Hercules - The Untold Stories is an Indie Action Platformer Adventure Game inspired by classics, like Dynasty Warriors, Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia and God of War. Its combat system includes hack-n-slash sequences, acrobatic challenges through deadly traps, and the Time-Swap system where you can on the fly travel back and forth between the past and the present to solve puzzles. :D

You can play the free Puzzle Showcase prototype on itch.io or gamejolt:

HERCULES -The Untold Stories takes you into a world of intriguing attempts through timeless incidents, where past events are untold by the intertwining of the past and the future and their influence on each other. Throughout the game lies an amazing story. You will play the role of Hercules, the illegitimate son of Zeus, in a completely different storyline compared to the Greek mythology. Alcmene, his mother, is murdered after she receives the wish-fulfilling gem bestowed by Hera. Meanwhile, Zeus and the other gods on Mount Olympus disappear mysteriously. What has happened?

TIME SWAP

When Hercules acquires the ring made from the hair of Chronos, with one punch to the ground he will shift to another point in the time stream.

When the time changes other things will change too. There will be things that are no longer here now, new objects will appear at another place, items will wear out, while some creatures will grow and evolve. You must use those differences, or you must create similar differences by yourself by intervening in the past, to find a way to pass through obstacles at the present for example.

COMBAT

Along with basic skills, such as roll, dodging and shield blocking, Hercules has various combos to satisfy the desire of extreme hack-n-slash actions. He can also learn different powerful, special skills, such as dealing AoE damage, healing, ranging attacks... from NPC or by buying scrolls at the shops (where you can also buy equipment, new weapons, and combat support items).

PLATFORM & EXPLORATION

You will be challenged by the struggled jumping of traditional platformer games, and sometimes you have to combine multiple skills, such as clinging, double jumping, sliding, or even using skills to pass through. And yet, there are challenges that may only pass through in the past and you will have to use the Time Swap. But be careful, as a lot of traps await!

ADVENTURE & PUZZLES

Besides the main story, which contains many secrets and questions that need to be solved, the NPCs also have their own stories and missions that fit in the Adventure style, with dialogues, inventory system, collectible items, combinable and usable items. You have to take advantage of Time Swap to find lost objects, or you have to undertake actions in the past to create new objects in the present and so on.

Also, you will meet the familiar puzzles of boxes pushing, levers, pathfinder, and secret areas like in Tomb Raider. :D
