Heroes of Hellas
As Good As The Others
I, like some others, played 2 and 3 first, so was reluctant to get number one. Then I decided to use a game credit on it, and I was not disappointed. Whilst it is slightly different in some respects (perhaps simpler in some ways), this does not diminish the enjoyment of the game. Level of challenge to make it interesting, but not too difficult. I usually don't like timers, but I did not have a problem with this one. I also loved the storylines of the Heroes, particularly thrilled with the very last one! I recommend this game as much as the others.

fantastic game can not stop playing it.!!!!!!!!!!!
Only one thing wrong, not enough time in some of matches, and once you have finished the game you should be able to go back and choose a level to play again.

PLAYED in TIMED mode and BEAT IT
To be honest (after having played the other 2 sequels), I don't recall if this game has an UNtimed mode or not but I decided to purchase this game (despite having many timed M3 games only half played because I couldn't beat the clock) and I was able to completely finish the game.
There were some levels that I had to replay several times while accomplishing the feat with only a second or 2 left on the clock but for whatever reason, I actually enjoyed the challenge of this game and didn't mind too much in having to replay levels.
I believe it was because of the fact that the timer does not act like a flood -- draining within seconds -- but acts like a slow leak -- draining just enough to keep you on your toes.

Good game for young and old
I liked this game the best of the 3 Hero's of Hellas. Loved the trailing match instead of the drop and slide. I wish they made more like this. Educational, earn $$, build a city, lots of bombs, shooters, etc. My grandson just turned 5 and he loves it. Easy level is just right for him but he will soon need the normal level.

Finally, a challenge!
...and it is! I started on the Normal setting and by the mid-levels I was always coming *right* down to the wire on the timer. I have other Match 3s that I enjoy more leisurely, but this one definitely tests your brain-hand-eye coordination. :-)
As an added bonus, the game doesn't condescend to you with poorly acted character dialogue, but states the premise quickly in text and moves on. The Mythological theme, for those of us into these things makes a great backdrop, and it's obvious the designer had some affection for, and knowledge of, the topic. It's great that somehow a great game didn't get lost in that zeal, but the mix was just right. One could *easily* enjoy the game without such interest.
I hope the sequels are as balanced and as challenging.

Another great Hidden object game
I like all 3 of the Heroes of Hellas games but have so far only bought one. I have tried the other 2 & will be buying them in the very near future. When playing timed, they can be a bit frustrating & have to be replayed but I enjoy the challenge.

I started off backwards purchasing nos. 3 and 2 and loved them. Bought this one and while lacking elements of the first two, it is extremely hard and I love it. Still am stuck on a level but will continue trying. Buy it if you love a challange.

Really Enjoyable Game
In addition to a very pleasant and relaxing game you will learn about some of the heroes of Greek mythology, like Icarus, who wanted to fly.
Very colorful, good sound and, not challenging, but very entertaining game.
Good for playing over and over again .... never tires.
