Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the PC game Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey for Windows & MAC.
In this game, Wishbone (Our favorite snack & book loving hound) is accidentally sent into a virtual storybook setting of the Odyssey by Homer where he unintentionally takes both the role & identity of Odysseus.
In this game, you follow the story of of Odysseus for by doing so will you eventually free Wishbone from this virtual storybook setting.
Along the way, you meet timeless characters from the Odyssey consisting of Eurylochus (Odysseus’ 1st Mate), Polyphemus (cyclops & son of Poseidon), Athena (goddess of wisdom), Poseidon (god of the seas), Circe (witch), Tiresias (blind prophet), Hades (god of the underworld), Zeus (king of the gods & god of lightning and thunder), Calypso (demi-goddess), Penelope (Odysseus’ wife) and Telemachus (Odysseus’ son).
In conclusion, this game teaches you history, mythology and culture as you play. Thus, I hope you find this game as educationally fun as I do.
