Erik - Manual
Erik is'nt your ordinary 8th Century pillaging, marauding Viking. He

murdering their men-folk and carrying off their women. No, Erik is a
friendly Viking who enjoys a quite life exploring old castles, building
computer controlled robots, scuba diving and sitting peacefully in his
However, Erik's peace and quite is shattered when the reincarnation of
the evil god Loki comes onto the scene. Angry at Erik's refusal to
join in with the more murderous Viking pursuits, Loki casts a spell over
Erik's worlds, turning his normally peaceful hobbies into a battle of
life and death.
Journey with Erik through each of his worlds as he confronts the terrible
dangers that await him. Help him to find the skill and cunning nessecary
to overcome the forces of evil god Loki and so earn the right to live in
Erik's 4 wrolds are each divided into 7 levels, the last of which
contains a guardian that needs to be defeated to gain access to the
next world. Each level is littered with monsters, cash, bonus items
and booby traps. Cash comes in the form precious jewels and can be
used in the shops, which are to be found on certain levels, to buy
extra weapons, shields and lives. In addition, each world contains
2 secret rooms which, if found, can be entered to find extra lives
and weapons not normally available from the shops.
On each level there is a key which, when collected, opens the exit
door and allows you to move onto the next level. But don't move on
too soon. The more cash you collect, the better the weapon you can
buy and the easier it will be to kill the many types of monster that
you will meet on your travels. However, be careful. If you lose a
life, you also lose any extra weapon that you may have obtained, and
that will make your task more difficult.
You have been warned. The choice is yours. Choose wisely.
