You’ll find Ulysses waiting for you under the walls of the city of Troy, ready to launch the last attack together before finally setting sail for Ithaca! The voyage is long and full of surprises, including storms, magic spells, sirens, giants, heroes, and beautiful women… But there’s no way he can make it without you. You’ll have to take him by the hand and help him overcome various obstacles. No one is too small, too big, or too timid for this incredible adventure. Just find the courage to… touch, tilt, and shake the magic tablet! And if you think this is girls’ stuff, well, when you see Penelope, the mysterious Circe and the beautiful Calypso, you might change your mind.
All aboard? We’re off!
