It was a day that the members of the Viking village looked forward to every 
year.  On this day everyone in the village celebrated the fall harvest with 
contests of bravery and skill throughout the afternoon and a grand feast at 

The most anticipated event of the day was the hunt.  In this competition, 
the best huntsmen from the village venture into the wilderness, to see who 
could catch the most game for the evening's feast.  By noon, all the 
participants had arrived at the starting point of the hunt, except for three 
Vikings who lived just outside the village.  Since their tardiness was 
nothing new, the decision was made to start the hunt. without them.  Upon 
hearing the horn, indicating the beginning of the competition,  Olaf the 
Stout and his two buddies, Baleog the Fierce and Eric the Swift, simply 
rushed into the forest to prevent the others from having too great of a head 

Meanwhile, the infamous intergalactic zookeeper, Tomator, piloted his space 
craft to Earth through a fiery vortex that appeared high above the fjords of 
the Baltic Sea.  Tomator was sure that he could find adequate specimens for 
his zoo on this tiny planet.  He commanded his ship to begin its descent as 
he made preparations to go on a hunt of his own.

As Olaf the Stout, Baleog the Fierce and Eric the Swift walked home from the 
feast they were still bragging over their triumphs in the hunt.  When each 
brother had finished claiming that he was a better hunter than the other 
two, they retired to their cottages, oblivious to the strange flying object 
that had appeared directly over their village.

Tomator brought his craft closer to the ground, trying to locate the three 
specimens that he had previously chosen.  He had noticed them earlier, when 
they appeared to be the victors of some primitive ritual of skill and 
strength.  After a few minutes, Tomator's computer located the selected 
humans and began to teleport his unsuspecting captives aboard his ship.

Eric, the swiftest of the Vikings, was awakened suddenly to find himself 
suspended above his bed and being pulled upward.  Despite his efforts to 
resist, he was drawn through the top of his hut and into the night sky.  
Next, Olaf the Stout and Baleog the Fierce experienced the same fate as they 
too were pulled from their beds, toward the strange metallic object in the sky.

With the acquisition complete, Tomator took his craft out of orbit.  Due to 
a short circuit during the teleportation process, the Vikings materialized 
in the corridors of Tomator's ship rather than in his specimen room.  Now 
the Vikings only hope to return home in the use of their skills and the 
strange vortices that can carry them through time and space.

Your story begins with three Lost Vikings aboard Tomator's ship, and only 
with your help and expertise can they find their way back home.

You must guide the Lost Vikings through the complex maze of Tomator's space 
craft.  Use Eric's speed, Baleog's weaponry and Olaf's defensive abilities 
to help return these poor lost souls to their village.

FAVORITE QUOTE: "It is better to run and jump away from enemies than it is 
to let them smash you into little pieces."
COMMENTS:       The tactical genius and self-proclaimed leader of the party.  
Eric is the swiftest and most agile of the Vikings which makes 
him an indispensable part of any expedition.  His wit and 
resourcefulness are often key to resolving difficult situations.  
However, he has a short attention span and gets easily 
agitated by sitting in the same place too long.  In fact, his 
patience is often times too thin to tolerate his two brothers.  
Despite these shortcomings, he proves to be a valuable 
companion on any adventure.
STRENGTHS:      Eric is the swiftest Viking.  He can outrun any enemy and leap 
high into the air.  He also has a head of stone which he can use to bash 
open walls.
WEAKNESSES:     Erik has no defensive capabilities, which leaves him very 
vulnerable if he goes out scouting by himself.  His speed can also be a 
liability at times if you are not careful.

FAVORITE QUOTE:  "Enter the mill and you will come out floury and baked" - 
                 unknown Danish Baker
POSSESSIONS:     Sword shaped letter opener, Long Underwear
COMMENTS:        Baleog's enormous ego is tolerable only in light of
                 the martial skill he provides to the expedition.
                 When he's not accusing his brothers of being lazy
                 or weak, Baleog can often be found sharpening his
                 sword and contemplating his strategy for world 
                 conquest.  Nonetheless, despite his sometimes less than 
                 pleasant company, Baleog is a fierce foe to any that
                 stand in a party's way.
STRENGTHS:       Baleog can attack with his sword and shoot arrows.
                 He can also use arrows to activate switches that
                 are a long distance away.
WEAKNESSES:      He has not yet mastered the art of defense.  Therefore
                 he usually hides behind Olaf's shield during battles
                 with formidable foes.

NAME:              Olaf the Stout

SPECIALTY:         Defense, Aeronautics, Comedic Relief
EQUIPMENT:         Shield, Belly, A Silly Laugh
OCCUPATION:        Mercenary, Winchell's Poster Boy

                   Dinner, My Dinner with Andre
FAVORITE HOLIDAY:  Thanksgiving Day
FAVORITE BOOKS:    ABC-123, Green Eggs and Ham
FAVORITE QUOTE:    "Life is just a big banana.  Be careful not to slip
                   on the peel and all will turn out fine." - Uncle Beorn
FAMILY:            Married with two children
FAVORITE TOY:      Yellow Rubber Duck named Elvis
COMMENTS:          This jovial Viking, with his hardy constitution and
                   steadfast resolve, can be counted on in any situation.
                   His appetite for adventure is rivaled only by his
                   passion for pastries.  Unfortunately, he is often
                   seized by unprovoked laughing fits, making extended
                   travel with him somewhat tiresome.  His hulking
                   presence is, however, greatly appreciated in the
                   heart of battle.
STRENGTHS:         He can use his shield to block enemies and their
                   shots.  Can also hold shield above his head and float
                   long distances, which gives him great maneuverability.
WEAKNESSES:        Has to wait for Baleog in combat situations and his
                   shield can not always protect him and the other Vikings
                   from certain foes that have jumping capabilities of
                   their own.
Eric:   My name is Eric the Swift.  I can run like the wind and leap 
        tall huts in a single bound.  It is time for me, Baleog, and 
        Olaf to go hunting.

Wife:   Have a nice day, honey.

Olaf:   I am Olaf the Stout.  I can block anything with my shield.

Baleog: I am Baleog the Fierce.  I am the toughest Viking in the land.
        No one can defeat me.

Eric:   Another successful day of hunting.  Life is good.  I hope I 
        never have to leave my beloved village.

Wife:   My hero!

          All evil space aliens need innocent prisoners!

#40     FRGT
CODE:   Off-On-On

Tomator:  Now I have you where I want you!
Baleog:   Standing next to the exit?
Eric:     Quick, let's get out of here.
Olaf:     Wait, that's what he expects us to do.
          ...or maybe that's what he wants us to think he wants.
          Now I'm confused... Let's just go.

#41     4RN4
Tomator:  Welcome to the arena!
          You three have survived longer than I expected, but persistence
          alone will not save you now.
          Farewell my friends...
          ...Ha ha ha!!!
Baleog:   Hey, Tomator, why don't you come out and show yourself?
Olaf:     Shut up, Baleog!
          What are you trying to do, get us captured right this second?
Baleog:   No, but this guy is getting on my nerves.
Eric:     Enough chatter, let's move out!
Tomator:  Not so fast, Vikings.
Baleog:   We're ready for you, Tomator.
          What's the matter?  Are you afraid?
Olaf:     Baleog, I really think you need to rethink your strategy.
Baleog:   Come on Olaf, who does this guy think he is?
Tomator:  I am Tomator, supreme ruler of Crouton, and you are my prisoners!
          You will not escape.

Tomator:  And where do you think you are going?
Baleog:   Out the exit, Tomato Head!
Olaf:     Please let us go back home, Mr. Tomator.
Tomator:  But you haven't even seen the ballroom yet!

Eric:     You two ought to be diplomats.
Olaf:     Very funny.

Eric:     Shhh.  Quick, let's hurry out the exit before he finds us.

#42       MSTR
Tomator:  Grrr...The three of you have been a constant...
          headache ever since I brought you aboard!
Olaf:     Does that mean we can go home now?
Tomator:  Umm....OKAY.
Eric:     Now this is an alien that I can't wait to bash!!!
Tomator:  Well, I'd love to chat, but I've got mean and evil things
          to do...
          Have fun.  Ha Ha Ha!!!

Baleog: Whew! That was close!
Eric:   Now let's jump into that time door and get the heck out of here.
Olaf:   Wait.  I think I can fly this ship.
Eric:   No way, Olaf!  You can barely fly your shield.
Olaf:   Trust me.
        I'll just turn this knob...
        Flip the switch...
        And press this button.
Ship:   Self destruct sequence has been initiated.
        5 seconds till self destruct...
Olaf:   Guys, I think we should take the time door.
Eric:   Good idea.  Let's go!

WARP                                            HOME
Olaf:   This forest looks familiar.
Wife:   They've returned!
Wife:   Hooray!
Wife:   Yea!
Child:  Da Da!
Eric:   We've been to many strange and exciting places.
        But nowhere so wonderful as home!
Olaf:   Look what we brought back from the future!

FAILURES                On retries 5-8-11-15-50-51

Eric:   Not this level again!
Baleog: Now look here, player, we're tired of this level.
        No more mistakes, okay!
Olaf:   Don't be so hard on the player, Baleog.  Human beings are 
        very sensitive.

Eric:   Well, if at first you don't succeed...
Baleog: Be happy you have another chance?
Olaf:   Baleog, that was profound.

Olaf:   We're back where we started!
        We've been given another chance!
Baleog: More monsters to fight!
Eric:   More treasures to find!
Olaf:   More food!  I'm starving, let's find something to eat!

Eric:   Not third place again?  Failure is so discouraging!
Baleog: Cheer up, Eric.  Maybe this time we won't fail.
        Maybe we can just settle for some minor setbacks.
Olaf:   What a deal.

Olaf:   Hey!  Haven't we been here before?
Eric:   Of course we have!  And we'd better improve or we're not going 
        to get out of here.
Baleog: If they'd have more monsters for me to clobber, things would 
        be going a lot better!

Olaf:   What happened?
Eric:   We failed again.
Baleog: I hate it when that happens.

Eric:   Is it my imagination, or have we been here before?
Olaf:   I'm getting rather attached to this place.

Eric:   This place looks familiar.
Baleog: Yeah, It's like we've already been here.
Olaf:   Repetition can make your memory a little funny.

Eric:   We've come back here so many times!  This is a disgrace.
Baleog: But we've clobbered lots of monsters, haven't we?
Olaf:   Give us a break, Eric.  This is a tough level!

Eric:   I have a strange feeling of Deja Vu.
Olaf:   Deja Vu?
Eric:   That I've been here before in a previous life.
Baleog: Actually, we've been here lots of times.
Eric:   That would explain it.

Baleog: No, not again!
        Do you realize how long we have been stuck here?
Olaf:   Maybe we should buy a home here.
Eric:   This doesn't look like a place where I'd want to live!
Olaf:   It was only a suggestion.

Olaf:   I'm tired, Eric.  We've been through this level too many times!  
        Wake me when we finish it.
Baleog: Good night, Olaf.  Have nice dreams of gliding over monsters.
Eric:   Good night, Olaf...
        Wait a minute, we need you to finish the level!
Olaf:   Oh, sorry.

Olaf:   We've been here before.
Eric:   Yes, we have.  Will you two please be careful?
Baleog: You've made mistakes too, Eric.
Eric:   Oh, that was low.

14      (Always on the 15th Retry)
Thor:   This is the voice of Thor, Viking Lord of Thunder.
        I am real angry with you guys.
Eric:   How have we displeased you, Oh mighty voice of Thor?
Olaf:   Why can't I see you?
Thor:   Would you want to be seen with Vikings that have failed 15 
        times to get through a level?
Eric:   But...
Thor:   In my day, Vikings were faced with much tougher levels, and
        we always got past them on the first try!
Olaf:   Always?
Thor:   Do you doubt Thor?  Now go out there and find the exit!!!
15      (Always on the 50th Retry)
Olaf:   Congratulations!  You've just won the 'Too much time on your hands'
Baleog: And you have waaay too much time on you hands.
        You've given up 50 times just to see if there are any more messages!
Eric:   Well, I'll save you a little time...
        This is the last message you'll get.
Baleog: Yeah, so you might as well just play the game.
Eric:   It's actually pretty fun, you know.

16      (Always on the 51th Retry)
Eric:   Now, didn't I just say that there were no more messages?
Olaf:   You don't follow directions very well, do you?
Baleog: This time we're serious.  Stop giving up, okay?
