Description

Hägar The Horrible is a Jump'n'Run game based on the popular comics by Dik and Chris Browne. At the beginning of each levels, Hägar's wife Helga gives him a list of items he has to collect in the current stage. Apart from fetching the items, the only goal is to reach the exit. Hägar is equipped with his normal shield and sword to fight enemies, but can also find more powerful extra weapons.

Trivia

Cancelled C64 UK release

The C64 version was never released in the UK due to a distribution contract falling through, despite reviews and a demo being published. Developer Rasmus Wernersson released the English translation to the internet many years later.

Cancelled ZX Spectrum release

A version for the ZX Spectrum was announced and to be published by The Software Business, but apparently never released.
