I think I saw this reviewed in an issue of Video Games & Computer Entertainment on the early 90s. I think it was an adventure game. It was set in a Norse mythology setup, although I want to say the protagonist (male?) was not the heroic sort. The boy that stuck with me was an image in the review with someone with light hair (I want to say blonde, but they might have been more redheaded) who was trapped in something like stocks by virtue of multiple braids of hair clamped into it. My memory was it being a female trapped by the hair on the top of her head, but it might have been a guy with their beard. Whichever way, they had an agitated, maybe agonized, look on their face. That image had stuck with me for decades now, and I realized today that I might find an answer here.
It was probably on the PC, but I did occasionally read the video game reviews even though I couldn't play them.
