Disney's Animated Storybook Hercules is both a video game and book released on 1998 developed by Disney Interactive and published by Media Station Incorporated with Animation Services. This is the last Animated StoryBook developed by Media Station Incorporated.
Before the game starts, the screen shows Greek vases as the Muses are heard singing the first Gospel Truth song until the scene fades to the main menu. Calliope talks to the reader introducing him about Hercules, but Thaliana interrupts her dialogue. After the song stops, Hermes flies to the main menu saying, "Fabulous story, ladies!" Hermes tells the player to start the story by clicking on the right arrow. There are many features in the main screen:
|Right Arrow||Takes the player to start the story.|
|Question Mark||Gives the player instructions.|
|Page Select (If Hermes' hat is clicked)||Takes the player to a page selection.|
|Exit (If Hermes' hat is clicked)||Allows the player to return to his desktop. Hercules must be clicked twice to exit.|
|Harp||Takes the player to let him sing any song.|
Before the player goes to a next page, he must complete each task said by the characters. For example, after the player clicks on any god and then Hermes says, "Click and drag the gifts to Hercules," the player must click and drag them to Hercules. Doing so will let an arrow appear. If the player clicks on it, there is a cutscene. (Example: Hades enters Mount Olympus but then returns to the Underworld after being told by Zeus.) Sometimes, the player is taken to a Muse cutscene. Calliope and Thaliana tell and continue the story of Hercules to the player.
This game is found in the Temple of Zeus page. If a twinkling star is clicked, it will show a constellation. Dialogues are heard until they fade away.
This game is found in the Damsel in Distress page. This is a Checkers game. The player can play this game with two players or his opponent.
