Hercules: The Official Game
Hercules: The Official Game is an application for Android that comes as a companion to the 2014 Hercules movie. The game is action-oriented and challenges you with various tasks and fights.
Just like the movie, Hercules: The Official Game is an ambitious project. The game is large and at 70 MB it needs some space on your Android device and a free connection to the Internet. Once downloaded the game will take you through a quick tutorial where you will learn to defend yourself and attack enemies; when finished you can choose to undertake the labors of Hercules or fight other enemies. You will need a strategy to win the game as opponents will become more and more difficult but the good news is that you can obtain and improve your own weapons.
The gameplay offers 3D graphics with numerous details so you should be satisfied in this department. There are several moves that you can perform but the actions are just two – attack and defend. It appears, though, that in order to win you have to follow the moves in a strict order. Given you strike your enemy a certain number of times you can use the so-called RAGE button that performs a strike combo on your enemy. The combo must be performed in a strict way, though, or it will not be successful. In a few words there’s action in this app and the action will appeal to fans of the genre.
Unfortunately there are downsides – the app is demanding on the hardware so make sure to have a powerful Android device. Then you will have to spend some time waiting on the loading screens to finish what they are doing. In addition the 3D graphics is sometimes choppy but we think it is because of slow hardware rather than a bug in the game itself.
So fans of ancient Greece get your Android devices and hope that they have enough power to run this game. We think you will like it. In the meantime you can take a look at Hercules: The Official Game here on Google Play.
