"Beyond the Ice Palace lies a mystical land caught up in a battle between good and evil. Dark spirits are setting alight the forests, destroying the homes and livelihood of simple woodcutters. In desperation the ancient and wise spirits of the woods shoot a sacred arrow into the air. Whoever finds it will be able to destroy the powers of darkness..."
The game is a 2D scrolling platformer. The player must complete his mission by fighting through three levels of monsters. There are some similarities to Ghosts 'n Goblins, such as the ability to pick up different weapons. The player also has two Spirits of the Forest (circular faces) which may be summoned to attack enemies in difficult battles. More spirits may be collected along the way.
- Sinclair User: "Not a classic in any sense, but certainly good enough to occupy you until the NBT (Next Big Thing) comes along."
- Your Sinclair: "... All in all a rather super little game..."
- Crash: "A slick, playable and extremely compelling arcade adventure ... 83%"
