In many ways it can be considered a SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors''. The Martians from that game even feature prominently.

In many ways ways, from the style of gameplay to its offbeat sense of humor, it can be considered a SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors''. The Martians from that game even feature prominently.

The overhead, action-adventure format was similar to ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors''.

* DefeatByModesty: Defeating regular or Amazonian soldiers doesn't kill them it just makes their armor fall off and leaves them in their underwear, in which state they're too embarrassed to fight anymore.



* GoofyPrintUnderwear: "Killing" enemy soldiers will just strip them of their armor, leaving them sitting in shock on the ground wearing only their pink and white stripped boxers. The same happens to the Amazons, except they wear metal bikinis instead.

Spring is booming in Ancient Greece. Flowers, plants and all kinds of life are growing thanks to the efforts of Persephone, goddess of vegetation. Everything is fine and dandy until Hades, being the party pooper that he is, kidnaps her to turn Greece into a wasteland where eventually everybody will die so he can fill up Hell. Zeus finds himself rather short on heroes for this one since only three of his usual guys are still alive: [[MightyGlacier Hercules]], [[TheMario Jason]] and [[FragileSpeedster Atalanta]]. It's up to one (or two if someone picks up the second controller) of these guys to go save Persephone, which won't be easy since their Ancient Greece is... [[AffectionateParody rather]] [[TheThemeParkVersion weird]], with sheep-eating cyclopses, laser-spewing giant boars, lasergun-toting aliens, blood-thirsty soldiers and Amazons and a variety of weapons and items plain crazy such as magic voodoo dolls, healing gyros or garbage.

* WakeUpCallBoss: Not a literal boss battle, but the very first enemy you stumble across after descending from the starting mountain is a Cyclops. Which is very dangerous to fight, has around 100 HP and is fought when you'll be short on secondary weapons to throw at him. Hercules though can at least throw huts and boulders at him.

** GetBackHereBoss: The two giant boars and the Minotaur, due to the fact that you fight them in a labyrinth (a lush forest for the boars, the real Labyrinth for the Minotaur).

* ContinuityNod: In the game intro, you see Hercules fighting the Nemean Lion. In the game, his sprite wears a cape made of the lion's head.

** AttackItsWeakPoint: Talos ([[Franchise/TheElderScrolls not that one]]) is immune to all your attacks except for headshots... Which will make him drop it's helmet and reveal it's true weakpoint: a cartoon target painted on it's ass.
** BossCorridor: Actually used as a boss arena where you fight [[spoiler: Cerberus]].

Added DiffLines:

** Finding the flamethrowers is a pain if you don't know where to look since the only clue you'll ever have about where they are is that "they make fire weapons in Creta". Thy're actually in a hidden part of the Labyrinth, that only opens after giving the Minotaur's Head to Poseidon.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Voodoo dolls shrinks down all the enemies on the screen and reduces them to a whooping 1 HP. The problem is that they're rarer than rare and the only guy who sells them wants 4 abundance horns for one. At their cheapest, horns cost 2 gold. And gold (available only as single coins) is ''incredibly rare'' as a loot from fallen enemies.

* JerkassGods: Played with: Zeus is quite confident in your abilities to stop Hades and Poseidon warms up to you after you kill the Minotaur, but Athena and Hera never stop to point that you suck and thus shouldn't expect too much of the gods.
