25 attempts and I finally made it:

This game is really farking addictive.  I'm not usually a huge fan of roguelikes, but the persistent progression between runs is satisfying enough.  I think this might be the strongest Supergiant game yet for them

Certainly the most intricate in terms of options/roads to victory - or defeat for that matter.  Was really surprised at how strong the sword builds are, you can get away with a lot with a blocking dash attack and either world breaker or fast slash for your attack.

My most consistently good builds (although I've only beaten Hades once so far), generally have the bow with apply doom on either the attack or special.  That just drops enemies quick as hell, especially if it stacks.  I also do a lot better when I have the dodge-deflect ability from Athena.  Anything else on the build is pretty flexible, but those two things get me a lot farther on average.

Jeebus, I'm on my 38th try, and have just beaten Megaera. I feel like I'm in Hades.

A coincidence, I began playing this game on a laptop, but the keyboard is too cramped. So I wound up buying a Razer Tartarus gamepad, so I could fight my way out of Tartarus.

I have my mirror skills almost entirely maxed out. That's made all the difference, especially death defy.

Yep, Athena's dash attack is critical to the whole sword build for olds type thing I run.  Deflect dash, extra dashes (4 is near... well godlike), dash strike hits twice, literally all you need.  80% of the time you just dash around like a deranged pinball in full deflect mode.  Aim the dashes toward whatever, vaguely.  Mythological critter soup.  World Splitter/Flurry Slash aren't necessary but they help adding some dps when you're not dashing.  Also handy are Artemis' attack skill Deadly Strike, Pressure Points (any attack can crit), Hunter's Mark (marks nearby foe when you crit one), the Artemis/Athena duo Deadly Reversal (after you deflect +20% crit chance), and Artemis' Support Fire (hit anything you hit again with a seeking arrow.)  Her Hide Breaker (extra damage to armor) and Clean Kill (extra damage on crits) are more situational/minor but help some as well.  You're pretty much all Artemis other than the possible duo on Reversal and the dash - and you're ridiculously durable unless you play like a complete ding dong.

/boils down to, "Not dashing?  WTF is the matter with you get to dashing."
//even if you're just walking across a cleared room, fark it

Some Junkie Cosmonaut: (words)

Should point out though that two places are problematic with that.  1. Asphodel with all the damn lava around.  Being a pinball can be a bit scorchy there, dash with care.  2. The Satyrs and rats in Temple of the Styx.  Poison is a hell of a impactful genital re-arranger for any melee build.  Really needs some tuning IMO.  Neither of these things keep it from being quite powerful, it's just a bit more irritating there and you have to pay some attention.

Just got into my first fight with Charon. That was pretty cool.
