Reviews

“I enjoyed playing this game very much. The graphics are excellent, with smooth animation and although I seemed to be running around the maze doing nothing for quite some time. Gift From The Gods is totally absorbing, interesting and fun.”
90% – ZX Computing (June 1985)

“If you like Avalon then you'll love Gift from the Gods - it is great fun to play and you never know just what you are going to find around the next corner!”
85% – Computer and Video Games (March 1985)

“Gift from the Gods is without doubt the best game that has ever come out with Imagine connected somewhere to it. The graphics are very good and the animation of the various monsters and yourself is excellent. The game is colourful and the overall presentation is marvellous. Gift from the Gods is fun to play and, offering challenges to players of all sorts — you don’t have to be an arcade wiz to get from room to room, but you have to be quite good at games if you want to complete the game.”
84% – Crash! (February 1985)

About This Game

Originally released in 1985 for the ZX Spectrum, Gift from the Gods saw players take on the role of Orestes from Greek mythology, as he braves the trails of a labyrinth to avenge the murder of his father, Agamemnon, by his mother, Clytaemnestra. Now, relive those days in this remastered emulated version.

Gameplay

As the mighty hero Orestes, search through the expansive and confusing catacombs for the mythical Euclidian Shapes, six of which are required to reveal the exist. Along the way you will be hindered by terrifying illusionary creatures created by the demi-gods, but there is hope: your sister Electra is also somewhere in the labyrinth, and she possesses the knowledge of which of the Shapes are the six needed. However, the treacherous Clytaemnestra has heard of your task, so also stalks the winding passages looking to kill Electra.
