Myth: History in the Making

 

Released fairly late in the Spectrum’s life (1989), System 3’s Myth showed what you could still do with the old girl provided you put a bit of effort into it. As the name suggests, it takes a few old famous myths such as the Norse Legends and Ancient Greece and shoehorns them into a time-travelling hero-type plot.

At heart Myth is a flick screen platform game, but it was also so much more than that. Your character can fire fireballs and perform some quite acrobatic moves, and there is also a smattering of puzzles to solve. The graphics are lovely with a fair dab of colour and some very impressive animation. Apart from a slightly anti-climactic ending, Myth is a superb game.
