Inventor’s philosophy

for Design and Development

The concept was born in the native land of Hercules, Greece, by a sophisticated inventor, the Chemical Engineer Mr. Spyros Karekos. His fascination with Hercules was reflected, via the design of his son Mr. Ignatios Karekos, on this carefully made pattern puzzle that exudes originality and high attention to detail.
A short message by the inventor:

Our goal is to acquaint the player with ancient Greek mythology and ancient Greek thought. This project aspires to become a mental challenge for those who love puzzles and cognitive tribulations, as well as a pole of attraction for the lovers of ancient Greek mythology and philosophy. The player, as a contemporary Hercules, is called upon to face a series of mental challenges and to feel satisfaction as he or she successfully completes the "Labors", armed only with his or her mind and perseverance.

The Labors of Hercules are aimed at lovers of puzzles and brainteasers, as well as to every man who is attracted to the ancient Greek spirit. The puzzles are based on ancient Greek mythological motifs, ancient Greek geometry, mathematics and logic, as well as linguistic elements derived from Greek history and prehistory. The Platonic and the Archimedean solids, the linear scriptures A and B, the meanders and the architectural rhythms of antiquity are presented as elements that lead to the solution of the twelve Labors.
