The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    ADVENTURE GODDESS



    Athena, the beautiful Goddess of Wisdom, has grown weary of her life in the castle. She yearns for the excitement of Fantasy World, where she can fly through the air or explore the ocean depths. More than adventure, however, awaits Athena. Strange and fearsome creatures lurk at every turn, threatening her very life.

    GAME PLAY: Help Athena fulfill her wildest dreams as you guide her safely through Fantasy land. Find some of her defensive weapons--a ball and a chain, a bow and arrow, or a mighty fire sword. Catch hearts and crystals that increase her life span. Break through rock and brick walls to find hidden treasures--like the Shell Necklace that changes her into a mermaid. Take care! Run out of time or allow Athena to be hit too many times and she will surely die. Her life is in your hands!
