Gameplay Description –

Hades, as the God of the Underworld, creates a variety of traps and monsters in his perfect dungeon to stop and prevent the player from reaching him.

TheĀ  player takes control of Thanatos, who enters the Underworld, and makes his way to the end of the dungeon.

He must manage his Godly energy, for if he runs out of it, he will be unable to make any actions, which can mean a loss since it disables him from tkaing any action. Not only that, when a monster dies, it releases energy which can be absorbed by the gods.

Thanatos, in addition can change himself into a non-living form of death, becoming a ghost, in order to navigate through certain traps
