Hammer of the Gods Game Free Download & Install Guide

Author: Glenn Scrima

Hammer of the Gods is a fantasy based strategy game from the mid 90's. The game bases its story off of Viking culture and lore. You are one of the four mightiest Viking warriors who travel to Asgard on a quest to speak to Odin. To accomplish this however you must first fight for the favor of the lesser Viking gods. Therefore each quest in the game will get you closer to speaking to Odin himself. The game is definitely a fun title for strategy game fans and for those who enjoy a Viking themed adventure.
