'Mythic Blades' - Demo Available NOW

by Rainier on May 2, 2005 @ 8:44 a.m. PDT

Mythic Blades is a visually breath-taking entertainment title which places the player in the role of Legendary Hero or Terrifying Monster during combat to determine the fate of the Olympus. Ares has challenged his father; if Ares wins, he will take over Zeus' place and rule over the Olympus - but the battle does not take place there. Instead it will be fought between Man and Monster.

Combat Time can also be set in the Options: Game menu within Mythic Blades.

Mythic Blades supports Keyboard and Windows 98/ME/2000/XP compatible gamepads for controls. If you are using a gamepad you will just need to set up the controls in the Options>Controls. Once set you ready to go.

*Gameplay Tips:

1-If you are having difficulty at Normal skill level then change the skill level under Options>Game>Skill
2- Watch your enemies powerbar. If it gets full there is a good chance they will unleash a divine guardian attack. This is bad and worse if your hitpoints are low.
