    ## NO KNOWLEDGE OF GREEK LANGUAGE IS REQUIRED TO ENJOY THIS GAME (don't be afraid, English speakers, it doesn't bite) but, then again, knowing a little Greek might make the game even more special for you (you'll know what the words are you're being asked to spell).##

    "All in all a cute game with some decent polish that, again if not a Greek speaker, plays a bit more like a symbol matching game (ala Alien Glyphs) than a true word game. 4/5"

    #1 The story:
    "A long time ago in ancient Greece was living extremely rich greek Dedalos Papulosis. He always wanted gold only for himself. To hide his fortune he commanded all slaves to build great labyrinth. And all who have seen drafts of that construction were killed. Only one thing is known: there are 42 stone gates locked with words. Many brave young people did try to enter but..." . Now it's your turn! Good luck!

    #2 How to play?
    There is a 6x7 grid (so 42 cells) filled with constantly changing and random Greek letters of various colors. Down below this grid is a Greek word. Your mission is to find the letters for that word below as quickly as possible before the level's timer runs out. The letters you need may not even be on the board at this particular moment! So you'll either need to wait for the needed letter to show up (each cell, unless the letter is locked, will come up with a new letter every few seconds) or use up one of your allotted "Resets" (this shuffles the board but uses up 30% of your remaining time) or use sings with special features Replacer, Changer and Locker. If you manage to spell enough words you'll be allowed to progress onto a new level with a completely reset timer for the next level. If just spelling these Greek words isn't challenging enough and you want to get into extra style points, you can spell words in all different colored letters or making a point to only use black and white letters in an alternating manner.
