Ancient Greek punishments: the 8-bit Flashgame edition

"Let's Play: Ancient Greek Punishment" is a series of 8-bit Flash games based on the punishments visited by the gods on various naughty ancient Greeks: Sisyphus, Tantalus, Prometheus, Danaids and Zeno. There's something particularly awfully wonderful about rapidly pressing the G and H keys to writhe in agony and dislodge the eagle that is devouring your liver.

  1. Heh, cute.
    I did something similar awhile back:
    Virtual Sisyphus:
    Virtual Tantalus:
    Virtual Prometheus Bound:
    Not quite as physically punishing as these, but I plan to convert Virtual Sisyphus to iOS
