The main character, Grindleguts the Orc, seeks revenge on all humankind for the way his race has been treated. He faces many dangers amongst those who find their mission to dislike and kill orcs. The game flows in real time; each person and creature goes on about their daily lives. The player's decisions and timing play a key role in the outcome of the game. A recurring theme is related to tying rope to objects that have been discovered during game play. The game offers the commands RAM SAVE (to store your progress at key points in the game), RAM RESTORE (when the villains all start closing in), and OOPS (to undo an unproductive command) to prevent having to start over from the very beginning of the game.
