Heimdall The 8th Day / Core Design / Virgin Games 1992

You play as Heimdall, a demi-god based in Norse mythology. Heimdall's job is to protect the entrance to Asgard, the home of the gods, from all evil, including the terrible Ragnarok, when all the evil forces come together to try and destroy the gods and ultimately everything. Unfortunately Ragnarok is on its way and if that wasn't bad enough, Loki, god of mischief, has hidden Thor's hammer, Odin's sword and Frey's spear in three worlds (Midgard/Earth, Utgard the world of giants, and Asgard home of the gods). You, as the newly mortalized Heimdall, must visit each of these worlds to collect the god's weapons. Each world has around 15 islands and each island has countless rooms. When you start your mission you are given three sub-games to complete: axe throwing, pig catching, and the long boat fight. How well you complete these games determines Heimdall's stats (strength, agility etc) as well as how many people he can choose from to make up his party. If you don't do well then you won't get the full 30 characters to choose from and some of the better ones will not be available to you. Once you've done this it's time to wander around the isometric landscape solving puzzles and killing baddies until you eventually find one of the god's missing weapons.
