This second area in Hades II is called Oceanus, an underwater kingdom Melinos uses to bypass Kronos, the game’s rival and Titan of Time. Oceanus is generally more difficult to navigate than the first region, Erebus, due to explosive hazards, more powerful ranged enemies, and dating schools of swordfish. The level culminates in a musical boss fight against a rock band of sirens led by Scylla, the famous sea monster from Greek mythology. Scylla sings as her keyboardist and drummer back her up. Even with a shared health bar, individual monsters can be stunned and knocked out of combat, muting appropriate instruments over an active music track.
