Hephaestus

by SpaceRelated - Compo Entry

In this game, you play as Hephaestus, a blacksmith who lives in a cave. You can't fight, or even leave because of your bum leg, but you are determined to leave a mark on history. By giving out magical (or cursed) items, you can turn the tide of the wars, outfit characters for daring fights, and even influence their behavior.

Good writing. Game itself suits the theme quite well. Graphics are a little too simple, item in hand doesn't change much.

would like a full screen mode option, the game was interesting, and an option to quiet the sound too. :)

The idea is really cool. Like another commentator, I found it a bit confusing about what was going on, but at the same time it was almost too simple! Nice music too.

A solid entry. As a Classicist I totally rate the plot.

Great game ! Not really easy to understand what you have to do though, but the idea is really original and the music is very nice.

Like others say, the graphics are a little on the small side. It's also a bit much text to read, but the writing itself seems quite well done. It's fun to mix and match different combinations but I wish it was easier to refer to each of the fighters' personalities. I just found it harder to manipulate the battles, as the game expects you to do. I'm not really sure if there is a way to complete the game either, or if the soldiers just keep fighting for eternity.

As for the music, according to my sister, "it sounds like Christmas music!" :P Could use some sound effects.
