Age of Adventure was billed as "the greatest adventures in history," this game was actually two games in one: "The Return of Heracles" and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves".

Both games are somewhat similarly constructed, as they were built on an engine that is a precursor to Stuart Smith's Adventure Construction Set. Control multiple characters via a top-down perspective on various quests throughout the mythological past. Find items, increase your stats, battle monsters, and explore the land in these turn-based RPGs.

Both games featured a cooperative component that lets any number of players play together, simply by dividing up the available characters.
