A fast double level game with a fantasy Norse god theme. It's got 3-ball multiball, speech and a timed bonus ball mode that you earn once you've reached a certain (adjustable) score.

Extra ball is lit by shooting the drop target banks in sequence. The extra ball shot then moves between the 3 drop target banks by the hit of one of the four slingshots until you collect it.

Your end of ball bonus is shown on an extra display in the playfield. It carries over between balls. It can be multiplied to a maximum of 5x.

Multiball enables the horse shoe for playfield multipliers to a maximum of 4x. This feature stays lit for the rest of the ball, even in one ball-play, until the maximum has been reached. Balls can be re-captured during multiball play, resulting in single ball play (without draining one of them).
