Overall-God of Thunder isn’t a complete carbon copy of Legend of Zelda, as this game has plenty of material that separates itself from Zelda.

God of Thunder is an old game from 1994. It was once shareware but was released as freeware due to its age. Although the game is mostly shoot the enemy type gameplay, it contains many puzzles. Although this game is old, it is incredibly fun. It gets addictive but has little replay value once you win the game.
Abandonia Reloaded (Oct 01, 2006)
This is a nice, challenging game that I highly recommend. It is an interesting story about the Gods, how Thor must fight to save Midguard from his brother. The game is controlled by keyboard, which keeps things nice and simple. Allowing you to restart a screen is a very welcome feature if you find yourself trapped. The colourful graphics make it fun to play. The simple sound effects really suit the style of game. I think that some of the puzzles could be more forgiving, but it is a lovely game that will keep you busy for many hours.

V God of Thunder, mimochodem poměrně tuhé a trvanlivé, byť lehce stereotypní gamesce, se ujmete chrabrého vikinga s dobovou válečnou sekerou, ze které bych zřejmě já osobně dostal kýlu. Hratelnost je pak na (tehdy) tradiční shora viděné obrazovce klasická - sem tam něco vyřešíte, tuhle něco někam přenesete, tady zase zabijete pár potvoráků. Což rozhodně nemusí být zákonitě špatné...

Pięknej oprawy audiowizualnej od tak wiekowej produkcji wymagać nie można. Jednak w grach RPG nie to się liczy najbardziej. Mimo wszystko aby docenić walory God of Thunder, musisz być prawdziwym fanem gatunku. Mnie osobiście ta produkcja nie przekonała. Gra się przyjemnie, ale duża liczba niedociągnięć przechyliła szalę goryczy. Jednak warto spróbować, może Tobie przypadnie do gustu? Uwaga! Gra dostępna w serwisie VictoryGames za pisemną zgodą producenta.

Generalnie gra jest dość przyjemna i może wciągnąć mimo archaicznego wyglądu, więc można się z nią zapoznać, ale nad zakupem pełnej wersji warto się jednak zastanowić.
