Odissea: An Almost True Adventure
game brief: Who has not heard of Homer's 'Odyssey'? "Odissea - An Almost True Story" is an adventure that "almost" recounts the deeds of Ulysses, taking him to legendary places, such as the cave of the Cyclops, Calypso's island, the Sirens' tavern... a long journey in search of his homeland, Ithaca, where his beloved Penelope has been awaiting his return for many years.

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers® | rating: 2.5/5

summary: You'll sail through its simplistic gameplay, but this imaginative indie take on Homer's Greek epic can be an entertaining budget ride.
