The player assumes the role of a normal middle class man named P.J. Barrett. After a mixup in the local repair shop he accidentally brings home, instead of his, a TV set that belongs to a barbarian warrior. When he switches on the TV he is unexpectedly sucked through the screen into the planet Daltere where he finds out that an alien named Helmar has stolen "the jewel of light" and that this world is in danger. Thus he is forced to take on a mission to free it from tyranny and to save the galaxy.
