Vikings is your basic platform game but with a twist. Insteadof one character who can jump, run, shoot, collect items, flip switchesand so on, you have three different characters, each with its ownskills: Eric can jump, run and bash through walls with his tough helmet. Olaf has a shield which can block attacks, function as an air glideror as a step to stand on. Baleog can shoot things with his arrows orkill things with his sword. He can also flip switches from afar byshooting them with an arrow. You will have to use the three Vikings asa team, if you hope to get past the increasingly difficult levels andpuzzles.
