This afternoon -- as we do every Tuesday and Thursday -- Joystiq X Engadget Streams is taking a trip back through Greek mythology with Alien Trap Games' Apotheon on PS4. Also available on PC, it's one of the free games this month for PlayStation Plus subscribers and brings 2D action that's more than a little similar to the old Metroid and Castlevania games. For a fresh twist, it's got this pottery-art graphic style and a unique combat system. Your hosts today are Edgar Alvarez and Richard Lawler, so follow us on Twitch.tv/joystiq between 3PM and 5PM ET where we'll give this sidescrolling throwback a try.

[We're playing a digital copy of Apotheon on Playstation 4, streamed on an Elgato Game Capture HD with Open Broadcaster Software at 720p. The game itself is much, much prettier.]
