Thor's Hammer is basically a first-person shooter in the style of an RPG. Your character can walk, run, and strafe in any direction in a "flat" 3D environment like Wolfenstein 3D, battling enemies in real time, and there is no money or experience points. Nevertheless, you fight with an axe and cast magic spells, you can upgrade your weapons and armor, and your health and magic bars increase throughout the game. The combination works and it's quite a fun game, though a bit too easy. The dungeons are huge, though mostly devoid of enemies, so the game is more time consuming than difficult. Fortunately the game draws a map for you as you move through the levels. Version 1.77 has a Win16 installer, but it's still a DOS game once installed. There are 3 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
Episode I: The Trial
Episode II: The Journey
Episode III: The Battle
