Trying to ride the hype of the theatrical release of the movie Hercules, Glu is launching Hercules: The Official Game for iOS today. This game builds on all of the well-known Hercules story lines to bring a hack-and-slash dueling game with various hero characters to choose from, and different melee, magic and ranged attacks to go to battle with. You can warm up with computer-based combat and then take your skills online against friends and strangers with the Fighting Pit.
The game is free-to-play, naturally, indicating that you'll be asked to pony up with some in-app purchases down the road if you get interested in the game. That being said, it may be worth a look if you're into this period of history and want a fun game that's free to try.
