Odin is the ruler of Asgard. As Odin slept, Loki, God of Mischief, saw an opportunity to create some havoc. He and his allies (Jormangund and Nognir) have seized control of the land of Midgard, and hold everyone in the grip of fear. You are Thor - son of Odin, and half-brother of the evil Loki. You must travel through Midgard and free the villagers from Loki's reign of terror. Odin has given you an enchanted hammer, which you can throw at enemies to kill them. The good thing about this hammer is that it will always return to you.
Of course, things are never that simple. There are many situations where your hammer will not help you. You must be cunning, and think of other ways to get past your many enemies. You can talk to people, or pick up items by simply walking into them. The game comes as 3 chapters, which you can play in any order. At the end of each chapter, you must defeat one of the 3 bosses - Jormangund, Nognir, or Loki - and free the villagers.
If you find yourself stuck on a screen, simply press 'D' to die (you do not really die, you just restart that screen). This is welcome feature, as some screens are very hard, and you find yourself with no means of escape. However, it can be frustrating when you have to try getting through the same screen numerous times before you can progress.
As you start the game, you are given the choice of which chapter you wish to play. Once you have done this, you can set the music (no sound, pc speaker or digital) and skill level (easy, medium, and hard) for your preference. Pressing Escape allows you to change the settings (music, skill lever etc) as well as allowing you to load or save your game. However, there is only one slot for saving your game. If you want to save again, you will overwrite the previous saved game.
You will frequently need to replenish you energy level and your magic level. You can do this by picking up apples (for energy) and flasks (for magic). Jewels and keys are also very essential, as they can be used to open certain doors. Some areas are cleverly hidden under bushes, so you need to dispose of the bushes with you enchanted hammer. You will soon learn which bushes hide something.
