    Argonus and the Gods of Stone takes elements of real Greek mythology and shuffles them about to create a fantastic, engrossing new experience that feels like it fits in antiquity.

    While the hunt for items might be a bit much for some, those that persevere will be treated with a wonderful tale that the developers say is inspired by 60s and 70s fantasy films.

    Argonus and the Gods of Stone takes the death out of point-and-click games and tells a fantastic story acting as a sequel to Jason and the Argonauts.

    Although it has an intriguing story that feels like a Greek mythology greatest hits collection, Argonus and the Gods of Stone impresses with a fresh setting and the transposition of the puzzle-adventure genre into the world of ancient gods and heroic characters. Playing through it can be frustrating at times, thanks to technical issues, an overall aimlessness and puzzles that are made challenging by their dependence on hard to find objects and an inconsistent interface. With a bit more polish, focus and quality of life enhancements, Argonus and the Gods of Stone would impress all the more.

    Like attendants at a holy temple, developers like this keep the torches lit for any wandering players looking for a gateway into a bygone era. And those willing to track down this temple will likely feel right at home.

    Fans of adventure will find Argonus and the Gods of Stone to be too light on content; both when it comes to its plot, but mostly in regards to its almost non-existent puzzles. Fans of mythology, and especially Greek legends, will surely enjoy some bits of this small journey, but in the end, this is nothing more than an okay-ish (and empty) theme park with a Greek mythology setting.

    Seemingly profoundly clever, this adventure is actually extremely shallow. Neither the story nor the gameplay mechanics do justice to its strong theme of a petrified Ancient Greek world.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Personally i hate puzzle games, but this game made puzzle more active Cause it made it have some Cause to solve it which was the most important while you are playing an argonus Who is not fighter but a historian. You are Trying to save your People with no sword And manly words but with your mind. Even e historian can be written And be known to the World for what he has done. Thats marvelous And the story makes the puzzle something beautiful. Expand
