Argonauts Agency: Golden Fleece Beta Test
When Jason gets news about a legendary Golden Fleece, he assembles the Argonauts Agency to go find it. Will Jason succeed where others failed?
This story is a fun re-telling of the Greek myth of Jason and the Golden Fleece, much like Disney’s Hercules. I’ll admit that I enjoyed it and there is a reference where you have to rescue Medea in one level. For those of you unaware of the original myth, Medea was Jason’s wife, who helped him complete the trials to earn the Golden Fleece. Jason repays Medea by divorcing her in order to marry the princess of Greece. Trust me when I say that it didn’t end well. I’m hoping it ends better for them in this game.
Once again, I received the offer to beta test a game that’s about town building. I just hope this doesn’t become the new norm. In the game, you have to use workers to build bridges, factories and anything else that can help you achieve your goals for the level. Jason just stands there until he has to defeat a Minotaur or collect a papyrus. The Minotaur was actually Theseus’s deal but, in the Disney Hercules series, Hercules got himself involved in a whole ton of adventures that he never took part of in the original myths. Unfortunately, the beta test comes with two bugs. The first is when I couldn’t click on the Minotaur to advance through the level until I got a lucky break. The second is when I beat level ten and the game wouldn’t let me continue. I hope that Big Fish Games will fix these bugs when they release the full game. Anyway, you have to earn one star in order to advance throughout the game. The faster you complete each level, the more stars you earn with three being the maximum amount.
This game is fun, even with the bugs. I think I might buy the full game when it comes out.
