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 Atlanta]]. 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.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: If you have at least 20 stamina left, you can pick up certain enemies (namely, the soldiers, the skeletons and the Amazons) and throw them at your 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. Dionysos is too worried (and drunk) about his grapes to be an ass.

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.

* 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.
