Excellent puzzle tactics game with solid gameplay!
Excellent graphics with a not common (which is a big plus) ancient greece theme!
Personally I would have preferred a little larger (in size not in content) levels to give me (as player) more room to move and use your abilities, but maybe that just me! Still this is probably nitpicking...
Great work!

Thanks a lot!

Great game! One detail i would like to improve is for there to be some kind of warning that Cerberus takes two hits to kill.

Thank you! We will communicate this better in an updated version :)
