Anyone here played God of Thunder? It's a Zelda-like puzzle game released in 1993, and it's pretty entertaining and funny. I'd say you all should give it a shot!

After exiting the game, it mentions that there was a "hint book" you could order for the game. Those "hint references" are probably the hint numbers you would refer to in the hint book for the part of the game you are currently on.

Dude is playing through a master list of old DOS RPGs (later expanded to all computer non-console RPGs). Of course he touches the classics (Ultima, Wizardy) he also stumbles across a few lost gems. I'm entertained as hell reading this and made me think of this board. Didn't seem to deserve it's own thread, though.
