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: http://kirkjerk.com/2008/02/17/
    Virtual Tantalus: http://kirkjerk.com/2008/02/18/
    Virtual Prometheus Bound: http://kirkjerk.com/2008/02/19/
    Not quite as physically punishing as these, but I plan to convert Virtual Sisyphus to iOS
