Let’s Play: Glory of Heracles III Part 25

I keep mentioning this game in my articles and have used several sample movie scenes of it as well. But one really needs to have experienced the game in full to appreciate its quality. If you haven’t been spoiled yet (or even if you have), watch this series of youtube videos first before you read any of the related articles. I’m planning a weekly release schedule.

If you haven’t seen it yet, start with part 1. Or better yet, play it yourself. There is a fan translation patch available at romhacking.net which I used for this Let’s Play.

Why do the ship carpenters in Labat refuse to build or even repair ships? And what plan to save the world will Uranos come up with?

Did you watch the video until the end? So Uranos’s plan for closing this giant hole located in Trantia is to ask Atlas for help.

Bane of Mankind

The hole from which the monsters swarm that threaten to overwhelm mankind is far too big for humans to accomplish this task so they will need  to rely on a giant equally as huge as the hole that needs closing. It looked like there would be a war between Greece and Trantia but now they’ve become allies to fight a common threat.

I think this is a reference to the classic 1963 Astro Boy story The Greatest Robot on Earth, which was the most popular and influential Astro Boy story of them all. Here, the largest volcano in the world,1 According to the manga quoted. Mt. Aso in Kyūshū, Japan, becomes the arena of the final battle between the giant robot Pluto and the humanoid Astro Boy.

Mt. Aso

But the battle is interrupted when the volcano becomes active due to the fierceness of the fight. Astro Boy and Pluto have to join forces to stop it from errupting, by closing it with giant rocks.
