The peasants have hidden all their gold from the king and it is up to you to get them back. You basically run around clubbing people with your mace, the harder you hit them, the more money they will give you. If you miss your target you will lose energy. Don't hit Matilda the witch, she dislikes taxes and if you try to take a swing at her she will turn you into a pig. At the end of each level you can buy thing to improve your character such as strength elixirs. To hit the peasants point and left click, the longer you hold the click, the harder you will swing.
