A side-scrolling adventure game based off the Greek story of [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Orpheus and Eurydice]]; the heroine in the game is referred to as Helene instead. The [[ExcusePlot story]] is that Helene has fallen victim to the bite of poisonous snake and has been taken to Hades. Orpheus rushes to her rescue upon hearing of this.

Added DiffLines:
