You start in an abandoned cottage, near a goblin infested castle, full of loot, which you must liberate if you are to complete the game. You must do this by first navigating the maze like forest until you find the castle entrance. Your inventory capacity is limited, so any loot you discover must be taken back to the cottage, where you can drop it to increase your score and rank. Fighting involves taking multiple hits at enemies with whatever weapons you can find. Although I wasn't able to take the goblins weapons when I killed them. Command help can be found in the docs provided, or by issuing the INFO command in game.
If you're a fan of Text Adventure games, then you'll find this has a few nice touches which stand it ahead of the crowd. Using objects with each other involve simple, easy to learn commands. Progress can be saved at any point of the game, and the system of finding and retrieving the castle's treasures is fun. The game also has maze areas, which you'll get lost in very easily, as all the locations seem to look the same. But you can help yourself through these areas by mapping them yourself, and by dropping some of you inventory to use as landmarks. Overall a very nice adventure game, with a fun, but not infuriating level of difficulty. Go north and plunder!
