12 Labours of Hercules

Accompany Hercules on a quest to rescue his wife, kidnapped by the evil Hades in 12 Labours of Hercules! You’ll meet heroes from Ancient Greece as you vanquish beasts, repair roads and construct wonders in this stunning Time Management game!

This is a point and click time management game with very little brain power needed, an obvious port from a mobile game, but it’s charming, fun and the soundtrack is great! 

This is a fun little time sink in between more taxing games, and before I’d even started the hour, I’d already completed the game and put 6 hours into it a few years ago, so going back for another hour was a nice tread down memory lane. 

The game is bright, colourful, and the animation is pretty good. The UI however is the worst part about the game, it is very mobile game menu as they haven’t changed it when porting the game to PC. This is a shame because as casual time management games go, this is one of my favourites, I also own 3 or 4 of the many many sequels so look forward to more of these very similar reviews.

The story is fairly basic, and inconsequential, because let’s be honest, people only play these games as a time sink, not for a gripping story, this isn’t Telltale.

The game is very responsive and the controls were basic and quick, which is exactly what is needed in a time management game. 

This is a simple, straight-forward time management game where you just click the resources and what to repair on the screen, however after every world, there is a boss battle. The boss battle I faced within my hour of playtime was against a hydra and while it was still just clicking certain things in a certain time frame, it helped to break up the monotony of the general game.

Would I play it again? I had already invested 6 hours into the game to complete it before, but I’m not sure it’s worth a replay, especially since there are so many sequels out there. This game is currently £1.99 on Steam, and if you’re looking for a very casual game to sink your time into, you can’t really go wrong with 12 Labours of Hercules.
