Sisyphus... the king who was cursed to spend the rest of his days push a giant boulder up a hill, only to have it roll back to the bottom, forcing him to start over again. After many hours of frustration, he gets fed up and decides to rebel against Cronus by rolling his boulder into Cronus' castle in order to escape from Hades and to freedom. From there, Sisyphus and the angry boulder go on a journey throughout the ages of art (from Ancient Greece to Medieval times, all the way up to the Romantic era), meeting powerful historical figures and smashing their defenses to pieces.

* LethalJokeCharacter: The Block of Ages is slow-moving and unwieldy, but it destroys a gate in two hits instead of three and is completley indestructible, making it a viable option if the player has a good defensive strategy, and is even more dangerous on a map like L'aquila, which doesn't have any turns or major obstacles. There's even an achievement for winning a multiplayer match with it.
* MythologyGag: In this game, ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'''s {{Dracula}} and real life inspiration for the original {{Dracula}}, Vlad "The Impaler" Tepes, are one and the same.
